Watch as you pass by two of Delaware’s famous lighthouses, and then keep your eyes peeled for dolphins on your trip. The state is very easy to get to not just via boat but by car on roads like I-95, by train at the Wilmington Amtrak station or my plane through Philadelphia International Airport.
9) The Wilmington Riverfront is a cultural and family-fun center for Delaware’s largest city. Play in the warm weather with fun like riverside mini-golf and minor league baseball. And make sure to come back in fall and winter for outdoor ice skating and museums, like the Delaware Contemporary and Delaware Children’s Museum.
10) Lewes is known as the First Town of the First State, because it’s the site where Scandinavian settlers first set foot in modern-day Delaware back in 1631. Today you can shop and dine to your heart’s content along Second Street. You can also spend time in natural magnificence at Cape Henlopen State Park. Once there see how Delaware defended America from German U-Boats during World War II at Fort Miles.
