A large part of the influx of new residents is due to the ample and growing job opportunities available in Smyrna and its surrounding areas. Many of its 10,000 residents commute to Dover, which is the largest city in area on the Delmarva Peninsula. Delaware is known for its tax incentives, which constantly drive new businesses into the state. New residents and new businesses also mean that new shopping and restaurants can be found in and around Smyrna. Its proximity to Dover and the Delaware beach towns also means that Smyrna gets its share of tourists, who come to the area for the natural beauty and tax-free shopping. The Smyrna School District places an emphasis on community and ranks in the top third of schools in the state.
