Sussex County is the southernmost and largest county in the U.S. state of Delaware. The county seat of Sussex County is Georgetown. Sussex County is bordered by Delaware's Kent County to the north, Maryland's Worcester County to the south, and the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay to the east and northeast.
Sussex County has no large cities or Interstate highways, contributing to the quiet, rural ambiance. There are U.S. Highways 9, 13, and 113, and the largest cities are Seaford and Milford (which is situated partly in Kent County).
The Sussex County real estate market is brimming with fantastic options for home buyers, investors, and vacationers. You can find everything from large commercial farms to cozy cottages on the beach.
Large homes in the Atlantic Coastal style are particularly common, and many of these are raised up to three stories high to take advantage of the ocean views. Expect to find homes with many forward-facing gables, gambrel roofs, shuttered windows, shingle or horizontal siding, and raised front entrances and porches.
Whether taking in the light of a sunny day, or staying warm from the misty ocean air, these homes offer comfort and luxury in one of the most scenic areas of the Atlantic coastline.
Sussex County is a popular tourist destination, with many charming coastal resort towns. This industry is supplemented by an abundance of parks for visitors and residents to visit, and indeed Sussex County is known for its extensive wetlands and wildlife refuges.
Parks in Sussex County include:
The county also includes a number of substantial coastal waterways, like Indian River Bay, Rehoboth Bay, Little Assawoman Bay, and Delaware Bay.
Sussex County is also popular for its beaches, many of which are paired with beach towns like Bethany Beach and Rehoboth Beach. These beaches extend in an uninterrupted line north from Fenwick Island, before turning in at the Harbor of Refuge and then continuing to the northwest.
The fine what sands and gentle waves make these beaches popular for beachcombers, swimmers, sunbathers, and a fine selection of beachfront homes.
But the beach isn't all there is to Sussex County. It's also known as a highly productive agricultural area, with a countryside full of small farms and wooded lands. Sussex County produces more poultry than any other county in the United States.
And Sussex County is overflowing with cultural and community events as well. You can attend the Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral, Apple Scrapple Festival, Return Day Parade, Laurel Independence Day Celebration, the Nanticoke Indian Pow Wow, Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival, Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival, Rehoboth Jazz Festival, Sea Witch Halloween Festival, and Seaford Riverfest. So much to do!
