Delaware Travel Information

  • The Historical Society of Delaware is a state-wide organization devoted to the preservation and appreciation of the state’s history. It owns three historic sites in Wilmington, all of which are worth a visit: the Old Town Hall, Willingtown Square and the Read House and Gardens.
  • Also in Wimington, the Delaware Art Museum is one of the best galleries in the state. Recently expanded in 2005, the Copeland Sculpture Park is the first of its kind in the Brandywine Valley. The park currently features nine spectacular sculptures from the museum’s own collection and one on loan.
  • For garden lovers, the Winterthur Garden in Wilmington is a must-visit. The du Pont family has shaped the history of Delaware – the huge DuPont chemical plant is one of the major industrial works in the state – but the house and garden created by Henry Francis du Pont in the early 20th century is a far more attractive monument on the landscape.
  • Delaware has some of the best beaches in the mid-Atlantic. The busiest resort is RehobothBeach, which boasts one of the last wooden boardwalks on the east coast – though the rest of the town is not so historic. The stretch of beach is surrounded by a golf course, hotels, shopping malls, conference centers, condos and nightclubs. Nearby Lewes is a smaller, more historic fishing town. On offer here, as well as the beach and water sports, are bird watching, fishing, hiking, biking and wine tours. The main appeal, however, are the surrounding beaches, many of which have been protected by development as state parks – ensuring miles of sand and not much else.
  • Though Dover is the state capital, it is much smaller in size than Wilmington and often missed by visitors. If you do visit, don’t miss Spence’s Auction and Flea Market, held every Tuesday and Friday. The market is mainly for food and vegetables – homemade sausages and preserves from the local Amish community are specialities.
