A new year calls for exciting adventures. From gliding high above the forest floor to paddling your way across the bay, you’ll want to add these amazing experiences to your 2019 bucket list. Make this year one to remember.
Zip through the air – Fly through the forest on the Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course at Lums Pond State Park. Any time of year is perfect for zipping over the pond to catch beautiful vistas of the park. With various treetop activities, there’s something for everyone from kids to skilled adventurers above the forest floor.
Cheers to beers – Raise your glass at one of Delaware’s many celebrations of craft beer. From the spring’s Heritage, History & Hops to the autumn’s Brews by the Bay, you’re bound to find a festival where you can sample the best flavors in Delaware all in one spot. Keep track of what’s happening in the world of craft brews with the Delaware on Tap mobile app.
Fun on the water – Explore Delaware’s beach towns from a new perspective on the Cape Water Taxi where you can glide through scenic waterways and watch beautiful sunsets. Tours run from May through October. If you’d rather paddle than ride, try your hand at paddleboarding in the bay with a rental from Delmarva Board Sports or a kayaking adventure through the baldcypress trees of Trap Pond State Park or on the open water with a Quest Kayak rental.
Groove to the music – Delaware’s music festivals come in all shapes and sizes, from the nationally popular Firefly Music Festival which brings together tens of thousands of fans, to local events like the Ladybug Festival that showcases women in music, there’s something for everyone. If more intimate concerts are your style, check what’s on the lineup at the self-proclaimed “Greatest Rock and Roll Bar,” the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach.
Stretch your legs – Admire breathtaking scenic views from bike trails throughout Delaware. Catch a glimpse of the ocean on the Junction & Breakwater Trail, feel the breeze along the C&D Canal on the Michael Castle Trail or join hundreds of riders on the level pavement of central Delaware with the annual Amish Bike Tour.
