Discover Delaware on a Cabela’s trip

Since you’re getting ready to embark on your shopping expedition to Cabela’s at Christiana Mall, it’s a good time to consider some insider tips on making your trip the best it can be.

Of course, the place to start is at the Christiana Mall itself, which has dozens of hard-to-find retailers such as Apple and Microsoft, along with plentiful dining options, including a Cheesecake Factory, Brio Tuscan Grille, California Pizza Company and JB Dawson’s.

Other shopping opportunities can be found just up the road from Christiana Mall at Centre Point Plaza (which also has a variety of restaurants, including Olive Garden and Red Lobster, with the popular Border Café nearby). For fun and excitement, check out the nearby Casino at Delaware Park, which offers table gaming and slots.

White Clay Creek State ParkTaking full advantage of Delaware’s tax-free shopping opportunities might call for an overnight stay, which can be accommodated nicely at the cluster of hotels close to the mall, including: the Hilton Wilmington/Christiana, the Red Roof Plus, the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, and the Days Inn Newark Wilmington.

And, once your trip to Cabela’s gets you in the proper outdoor mood, you can supplement your trip with a visit to White Clay Creek State Park (fishing, hiking, hunting), or explore other back-to-nature attractions on the Delaware Outdoor Trail.
