Years pass and seasons change, but in Delaware, each moment of the year holds its own special gifts. The summer smell of ocean breezes and salt-flecked French fries along the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. Spring’s soft-hued blossoms, blanketing the grounds at Winterthur and other du Pont family mansions. Fall brings a palette of golds and reds to the rolling hills of Northern New Castle County, along with the crispy sunny days that are perfect for fall festivals like Apple Scrapple and Sea Witch. Then, as the Holiday Season inspires a yearning for warmth and celebration, spectacular Christmas lights begin to adorn the grand homes of Chateau Country, sparking visions of a time of regal simplicity.
