The first issue of Delaware Today arrived at newsstands in 1962—a black-and-white magazine adorned with line drawings and lifestyle features such as Flo Knows Fashion. In the half-century since, it’s grown along with its ever-expanding suburban area while continuing to celebrate and illuminate the local nightlife, culture, shopping, and neighborhoods. The now-full-color pages of the monthly publication burst with regional pride, from enlightening writeups on up-and-coming restaurants and neighborhood hideouts to impassioned editorials on why residents of the first state should get dibs on Ben Franklin's 18th-century baseball cards. Along with fun-inspiring articles on area wineries, salons, and bars, the magazine has a distinctly practical side: it also helps readers navigate their wealth of options for healthy, happy living by publishing ratings of local doctors, schools, and lawyers.
