A popular food and entertainment website has listed Wilmington as one of a handful of smaller cities to move to before they get too popular.

The ranking came from Thrillist featured cities with lower living costs and amenities. The ranking mentioned jobs brought to the city by banking giants as well as The Mill co-working community for start-up businesses, the Hotel duPont and the Washington Street Ale House.

Surprisingly, the development of the riverfront was not mentioned in the summary. Despite, publicity over the city’s homicide rate, Wilmington has been showing up in lists, like Thrillist.

Rankings have come from a low cost of living by East Coast stands, a location near major cities, growth in tech jobs and proximity to the Philadelphia. (See story below).

Other cities on the list included Greenville, SC; San Marcos TX; Portland, ME; and Delray Beach, FL.
