Greenville is a small community located in the northern reaches of Delaware, about two miles outside of Wilmington and 25 minutes from Philadelphia by car. With its proximity to these major cities, Greenville has developed into a wealthy bedroom community for commuters. Homes for rent in the area allow residents to enjoy a comfortable suburban environment with urban excitement, entertainment and culture just in the distance. Greenville, however, with its two main streets and many open spaces, could not be confused for urban. Rentals in the small town are located amid the green and leafy vistas that have made the Brandywine River Valley an appealing tourist destination, and one of the most popular areas in Philadelphia.
The Brandywine River Valley indicates the wide area from southeastern Pennsylvania to northern Delaware. This region is home to many famous museums, American castles, formal gardens and unique events. The Hagley Museum, marked by the 19th-century DuPont estate, gunpowder mills and formal gardens on the banks of the Brandywine, is the most famous attraction near houses for rent in Greenville. Other nearby landmarks include the Delaware Art Museum, known for its English Pre-Raphaelite collections, and the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail to the north of the Wilmington area.
Rentals in Greenville are at the center of a much wider tourist area, giving residents entertainment and recreation options throughout the year. Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and New York City are within two hours by train or car. For more rustic options, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Cape May, Amish country and Delaware's beaches are also about two hours away. Though Greenville is a community of only about 2,325 residents, its location makes it feel like the center of a culturally rich and historic East Coast region.
