NEW CINEMARK AT CHRISTIANA MALL: One of the best reasons to visit Delaware is the tax-free shopping, and one of the best spots for that is Christiana Mall, which is adding to its ever-expanding lineup of high-end stores with a 12-screen, 50,000-square-foot Cinemark Christiana. One of the screens has Cinemark XD ("Extreme Digital") technology, meaning a wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor screen. All theaters have 4K digital projection with RealD 3-D capability. With the mall just a quick exit off Interstate 95, it’s truly a perfect destination for a dinner, movie and some shopping on some idle weekend this year.

TRAMPOLINE PARKS ARE HOPPING: Things got hopping last year in Wilmington and Newark, where two trampoline parks -- Stratosphere and Launch -- opened to much fanfare. In early 2015, another park – called Skyzone – opened in the Newark area.
