"Small very nice town"
Hockessin, DE is a somewhat small town in a very nice area. The city is mainly full of houses with a small town in the center with little shops and nice places to grab a bite to eat. Great variety of small family owned resteraunts with great types of foods. There is not much of a night life other then some local bars, you are not going to find any clubs in the nearby area unless you head into Wilmington which is about 20 minutes away or you can cross into Pennslyvania and go Philidelphia. Philidelphia is about 30 to 45 minutes away depending on traffic. Hockessin is a pretty expensive place to live compared to the surrounding areas but you will find a lot of very nice houses. There are doctors in the area and the closest hospital is 15 minutes away. There are schools for all grades except for high school but there are plenty of high schools close by, just none in the actual city of hockessin. Great quality of schools whether it be public or private schools. There is a new state of the art fitness center that just recently opened in the heart of hockessin. It is extremly nice.
