Heritage Shores is the right place at the right time.


Love the ocean? We thought you might, so we had one installed just 45 minutes down the road. Love low taxes? We do, too, so we made sure the state of Delaware enacted no retail sales tax and some of the lowest property and other taxes in the nation. Love antiquing? Sailing? Fishing? Biking? All in place. We’ve arranged nearby festivals honoring such diverse pleasures as chocolate, apples, and, yes, even scrapple. Think we’re kidding? Well, we are, but just a little. All of these delights really are in our neighborhood, so to speak. And whether they were here before or after Heritage Shores, the fact is that they’re all 100% in place right here, right now.
