Top Things to Do on a Rainy Summer Day
Rain or shine, there’s plenty of great ways to spend your time in Delaware. Whether you’re looking to keep the kiddos occupied in the house or spend some time exploring a new spot with the grownups, check out these top ways to make the most of any rainy day.
Please remember to plan ahead and maintain social distancing. Please wear a face covering and bring hand sanitizer. Make sure to review guidelines before arriving at your destination. Some locations may be operating under different capacity or require reservations. Please remember to stay home if you are sick.
Keep the kids interested and entertained by either reserving a kit to-go or grabbing a table at the Great STEMporium in Lewes. The kits and projects help kids with problem solving and STEM skills while letting their creative side flourish. Or opt for at-home projects from spots like the Delaware Children’s Museum and Mt. Cuba Center. View more at-home activities for the kids here.
Share a meal from one of Delaware’s locally owned restaurants serving made-to-order dishes in store, with curbside pickup or delivery. Whether you’re in the mood for spicy and savory barbecue, country-style meals from locations off the beaten path or just looking to satisfy your sweet tooth with some yummy ice cream, you’ll find what you’re craving here! Be sure to sort by current services offered.
While your favorite outdoor destinations are on hold for the day, head to one of the state’s great indoor historical sites or cultural destinations. Try preserved sites like the Historic Homes of Odessa, the Old State House or Indian River Lifesaving Station or opt for a museum or gallery such as the Delaware Art Museum, Biggs Museum of America Art or the Mispillion Art League. Be sure to call ahead to learn about safety protocol and whether you need to reserve a spot.
Perfect for the afternoon or evening is a visit to one of Delaware’s top craft beverage locations where you can enjoy unique flavors only conceived by the creative minds of passionate brewers. Let the Delaware on Tap app help you find a location you’ll love.
Try extra special options when you dabble into seasonal menus or try out these new, fresh summer flavors. Check ahead for special hours and reservations. Many locations are still offering curbside and takeout, so feel free to pick up cans, crowlers or a growler to enjoy at home!
