This town doesn’t have a mayor or even a city council. Bear, Delaware, is part of the city of Newark. Being part of Newark, DE, it votes for Newark’s city council and uses its police force.

Bear is quiet, small, and somewhat mundane. Surrounded by bigger cities, it can sometimes have heavy traffic but not too bad. You will find little restaurants and shops you may like there, and nice neighborhoods. Bear is a quaint little city.

Bear is close to the major cities in Northern Delaware and less than an hour from the beaches. Bear is two hours from New York City and less than three hours from Washington DC. Bear has schools of all grade levels and is close to Christiana Mall and the hospital. Bear also has a mixture of suburb and rural areas.
