According to Niche, Newark, Delaware, a suburb of Philadelphia, is one of the top ten best suburbs to live in all of Delaware!

That’s little surprise to us, since we at Christiana Dental Spa have called Newark, Delaware, home for a long time! Our Newark dentistry serves Newark, DE, and the surrounding Delaware area with family dental services which put the patient first. In addition to our experience, compassion, and dental expertise, folks who are moving to Newark should know that our local dentistry is also focused on serving a diverse group of patients — we speak five different languages:

  • Hello – English
  • Hola – Spanish
  • 你好 (Nǐ hǎo) – Chinese
  • नमस्ते (namaste) – Hinduism
  • مرحبا (marhabaan) – Arabic

Newark, DE, Activities

While we will certainly touch on the variety of dental treatments and services we offer at Christiana Dental Spa at a later point in today’s post, our priority is to convince anyone and everyone who is thinking about moving to Newark…to move to Newark! That being said, sit back, relax, and let us make a case for Newark by highlighting just a few of the many things to do in our lovely Philadelphia suburb.

The University Of Delaware

While most people wouldn’t think of a college as being an attraction in and of itself, the University of Delaware is an experience you don’t want to miss out on. And no, we aren’t talking about their academic prestige; it’s simply a stunning campus that is sure to help you fall in love with Delaware. The ivy, the brick, the grass — it’s all picturesque and worth spending an hour or two to walk around and breathe in the serenity.

White Clay Creek State Park

While we are talking about things around Newark being stunningly picturesque, we might as well mention the 3,300 acre state park in New Castle County, White Clay Creek State Park. Adjacent to Pennsylvania’s White Clay Creek Preserve, the two states joint-manage the 18.5 mile stretch of water and land characterized by White Clay Creek. While you certainly need to check the park out for yourself, we recommend it for its diversity of trails, birdwatching opportunities, mountain biking paths, picnic tables, historic structures, and a formal nature center. The park is equally ideal for the whole family, the wee pup, or a romantic getaway!

Tax Free Shopping In Delaware

Whether you are going to Yogurt City, Saxbys Coffee, Aunt Margaret’s Antique Mall, or Rainbow Books & Music, there’s something for everyone in downtown Newark. In terms of eating options, there are 70 award-winning restaurants to choose from. Plus, when you are on the beautiful one-mile Main Street, you are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the aforementioned campus of the University of Delaware!

Fabulous Fridays

While we are talking about downtown Newark, we’d be remiss if we failed to mention one of the community’s favorite events. Downtown Newark Fabulous Friday’s happen on the fourth Friday of June, July, and August, as they showcase why everyone loves Newark so much! Perfect for the whole family, we recommend checking out the August show (if you can only choose one) as there will be a live performance with a Moana character singing and greeting children! Then, the University of Delaware Swing Club will perform, before the Juggling Hoffmans will dazzle the minds of old and young alike!

If you are wondering what Newark is all about, you don’t want to miss a Fabulous Friday!

A Wealth Of Beaches

Although Newark is technically a suburb of Philadelphia, one of the best parts of living in Delaware is that you are never too far of a drive away from some incredible beaches. Whether you are looking to sip a cup of coffee while staring out onto the Atlantic from the comfort of a cafe, you want to bike down a seaside path, or sunbathe and swim, there are plenty of options for you! Each one has its own distinct vibe, regardless of if you want to experience the hip and active Dewey or the family-friendly Rehoboth.

The last thing we will say about Delaware beaches is that the bayside tends to be quieter and more easy going, whereas the oceanside is more active, vibrant, and breezy!

Christiana Mall

Nordstrom, Macy’s, JCPenney, and Target are the four flagship stores of Christiana Mall, a regional shopping mall with close to 180 shops. Among the 180 are Cinemark Theatres, Cabela’s, Barnes & Noble, and many others. If you are a fan of food courts, there’s the usual suspects you’ve likely grown accustomed to, without forgetting about options like Brio Tuscan Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, and California Pizza Kitchen.

As we mentioned above, a major perk of living in Delaware is that there is no sales tax! It’s easy to justify going shopping that much more often when you have an excuse like that!

Deerfield Golf Course

The final reason to move to Newark, DE, (for this blog, anyway), is as follows: are you interested in playing eighteen holes on Greater Wilmington’s Top Rated Public Course? According to Golfweek, going to Deerfield will accomplish exactly that! As locals ourselves, we can confirm that the lush, green landscape is perfectly complemented by the pristine putting greens, well-kept fairways, and creative course design.

Find The Best Family Dentist Around!

We hope that you are convinced about the many virtues of Newark, DE. If you do end up moving to our lovely community of less than 40,000 residents, you and yours will need a high-quality dentist.

When that time comes, we hope that you choose Christiana Dental Spa. We are passionate about the quality of dental medicine we provide. Everything we do, whether it is a standard dental cleaning or a cosmetic dentistry treatment, we perform with a compassionate, patient-centered approach. Our priority is simple: we want to be instrumental in helping you achieve the best oral health of your life. In terms of process and results, we believe in what we do and so do our many patients.
