Welcome to Middletown The Ponds at Bayberry is a charming new home community for residents 55 and older. Situated off of Boyds Corner Rd, The Ponds is just North and East of Middletown, one of Delaware’s top locations. With a population of 21,250, Middletown is both small enough to offer communal intimacy and large enough to offer community amenities. But this is just one of the many reasons that Middletown is ranked as one of the best places to live in Delaware and why we at Blenheim Homes chose this destination to build our retirement community. The town itself is one of Delaware’s safest cities in terms of crime rate, which reflects the settled nature of its occupants. In fact, 79% of Middletown’s residents own their own homes. Perhaps this plays into why Middletown’s crime rate is the lowest in the state and its total crime rate is tied for the lowest. Middletown is home to many families, young professionals, and retirees, giving the town a harmonious and varied vibrancy.

Whether we realize it or not, we all intrinsically benefit from time spent in nature. Something as simple as going on an evening walk or sitting by a body of water has our muscles relaxing, our minds clearing, and our smiles coming more readily. But even knowing how valuable time in nature is, our busy lives can make it feel like more of a luxury than a necessity. Depending on where we live, it may take work to get a look at a long horizon or enjoy a walk through a wooded grove, and all too often, that’s time we feel we don’t have. Like any other self-care measure, understanding the importance of spending time in nature will help us find ways to make outside time a lifestyle habit instead of an occasional luxury. Read on for our list of 8 benefits of spending time in nature.
