Claymont Delaware is the worst place to grow up! I am from delco, and there is absolutely NOTHING for kids to do here. In delco, kids are out riding their bikes and hanging out around town.

In claymont, I NEVER see kids outside. Period.

There is simply nowhere to go to, and nothing to do. On one side is crappy wilmington, the other side is a refinery and methed out Marcus Hook, and the other side is the Delaware river.

The problem with Delaware is bussing and consolidation of school districts. They make 3 districts 1 mega district. Therfor, all the kids live far from class mates, or they buss in the trash from wilmington.

Sure Delaware taxes are crazy cheap, but I'd rather pay the 5-6k a year taxes in delaware county so my kids wouldnt have to go with all the trash and have a neighborhood where its safe for them to go be a kid in.
