Population: 73,069

Locals Love: Buckley's Tavern, which was built in 1817 as a private home, hosts its "Famous Pajama Brunch" on Sundays—dress in p.j.'s and your meal is half price.

Our Wilmington Family: Pei Jen; Ryan, 8; Neil; and Erin, 6.

I was born and raised in Taiwan and met Neil through an international student internship program. Over time we grew close through many common interests and our careers in technology. Although I hadn't planned on staying in America, we got married and first settled in California for job opportunities, then lived with his parents on Long Island, New York. We visited Neil's brother and his family in Wilmington about six years ago and decided we loved what this small city offered—countless outdoor activities and its proximity to major cities.
