Why Live Here
Small town charm, affordability, proximity to major area attractions are all reasons we love living in Seaford! Far enough from the beach to avoid heavy traffic, yet close enough for a quick trip! Seaford is the largest city within Sussex County and was voted the 28th Best Small Town in America (The 100 Best Small Towns in America. New York: Prentice Hall.)
