There are times when it’s just time to get away from it all. Those are the times when it needs to be just the two of you, free from life’s day-to-day cares, snuggling close on a moonlit walk along the beach, or sharing the last bites of that fabulous chocolate dessert at a waterfront restaurant on the bay.
Close your eyes for a moment and see how close your romantic getaway in Delaware can be. Take a weekend or even just a day to explore the luxurious world of the DuPont mansions, wander the boutique-filled streets of Rehoboth Beach, or explore the wineries along the Delaware Beer, Wine and Spirits Trail.
In Delaware, couples will find that those memorable moments are within easy reach, and are often easily affordable. Here are some top vacation ideas for your next romantic getaway to Delaware:
- Immerse yourself in a world of grandeur and romance in Delaware’s “Chateau County,” home to DuPont family mansions that are now amazing museums. At Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library, you can wander acres of blossoming gardens before heading to dinner at nearby Krazy Kat’s, a charming restaurant located in the Inn and Spa at Montchanin Village, which offers intimate rooms.
- For the kind of romantic allure that only the sea can provide, head south to the Delaware beaches. Take a stroll on the sand at Cape Henlopen State Park before stopping in downtown Rehoboth for dinner at one of this culinary hotspot’s top restaurants, such as Eden or Salt Air, or Henlopen City Oyster House. The romantic Bellmoor Inn and Spa is the ideal place to end the day.
- If there was ever a town made for couples, it’s downtown Lewes, where ocean breezes always scent the air. Browse the boutique shops along Second Street before ducking into Agave Mexican Restaurant or Striper Bites for dinner. Consider a night’s stay at the Inn at Canal Square, a waterfront gem.
- Linger over a refined dinner at the opulent Green Room in the Hotel DuPont, then take in a performance at the Playhouse on Rodney Square or the Grand Opera House before heading back to the luxurious Hotel DuPont for a cozy night’s stay.
