We had a nice time walking the neighborhood and admiring the beautiful homes. Some homes were not as well maintained as others. Fun to get on Zillow as you walk around!

We were lucky enough to rent a house in Forest Hills for 3 months and had a chance to walk throughout the area. Many charming houses and interesting too. A would through the area would be on your own as this is a neighborhood

This was the northern suburbs of Wilmington from the early 1900s with an early golf club from that era and home to famous golfers. If you are here and driving take a slow trip through this neatly maintained neighborhood and imagine how the well-off lived.

If you love classical old money homes, drive through this neighborhood that has been home to the movers and shakers of Wilmington for many decades. Lots of post WWII opulence, manicured lawns and a Rolls Royce or two.
