Whether it is a job or an education, a vacation or a new home, come explore our hometown located here in the heart of Delmarva between the beaches and the bay and discover what we mean when we say:

We are Seaford, Delaware, the perfect place to start.



        Seaford is situated along U.S. Route 13, the main north-south artery running from Wilmington, DE to Norfolk, VA.  Located in the southwest portion of the state, its central position on the Delmarva Peninsula makes it an important trade center and convenience to both the large cities and seashore resorts.  Using a  network of first-class highways, Seaford is only 83 miles from Baltimore, 96 miles from Washington, D.C., and 111 miles from Philadelphia and 200 miles from New York City.
