From hiking scenic trails to indulging your taste buds, gain a unique perspective on the First State by exploring one of these four paths of discovery: the Delaware Outdoor Trail, Delaware Wine and Ale Trail, Delaware History Trail, Delaware Geocaching Trail and the Delaware Culinary Trail.
Following a trail is easy:
1) Choose your adventure: Local brews and wines, historic sites, treasure hunts, decadent dining or outdoor discoveries.
2) Go to the trail’s website, download a passport and select the locations you’d like to visit.
3) Visit each location and have fun! While you’re there, locate a code on the designated trail sign, sticker or cache box and record that code in your passport.
4) Once you’ve visited a minimum number of locations, send the passport to the Delaware Tourism Office to receive a prize for completing the trail. Prizes range from commemorative beer mugs to a cookbook of recipes from iconic Delaware restaurants.
