Discover Delaware

Boardwalk at Bethany Beach in Delaware

Don’t let its size fool you – Delaware delivers. Be surprised and delighted by all the adventures that this under-the-radar destination has to offer. Visit historic colonial hamlets and laid-back coastal villages. Rove across sand dunes to pristine beaches kissed by ocean waves. Stroll through opulent mansions and French gardens in Chateau Country. Paddle a kayak through a wildlife refuge. Autumn brings fiery colors to Delaware’s cozy countryside, and tax-free shopping makes a trip worthwhile in any season.

Feel inspired by the energy in Wilmington, a vibrant cultural hub surrounded by the forested Brandywine Valley. Explore sophisticated restaurants and intriguing museums. Go bar hopping at Trolley Square and take a walk on the sunny Riverfront. Spring unofficially begins each year at the Wilmington Flower Market, and 

summer brings outdoor plays at the Delaware Shakespeare Festival. Shop from artisans every fall at the Brandywine Festival of the Arts.

Just outside of Wilmington you can visit the DuPont family’s regal mansions and gardens, lavish country estates that evoke the golden age of American industrialism. Nearby Newark is the home of the University of Delaware and a standout collection of brewpubs, bars, and restaurants that cater to the college scene.

Dover is the historic heart of the state and its capital city. Soak in the small-town atmosphere and immerse yourself in an incredibly rich history. Celebrate the town’s heritage each spring during Dover Days on the Green, in the same spot where locals have gathered for 300 years. See top-tier acts at the Firefly Music Festival every summer. In autumn, the city becomes a NASCAR hot spot with several days of racing at the Dover International Speedway.

Delaware’s fun, friendly coastal towns are picture-perfect seaside getaways. Wander down the busy boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach, which is lined with shops, restaurants, arcade games, and rides. Listen to live music in the bandstand gazebo, and enjoy the Sea Witch Halloween Festival every fall. Nearby Lewes is secluded and serene, a salty canal-side village with a unique nautical history.

Head south to find a string of beach towns, each with a distinct personality: Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, and South Bethany Beach. Dotted along the coast, discover outdoor adventures at the Delaware Seashore, Cape Henlopen, and Fenwick Island State Parks. Try surfing, kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle boarding, in these lush natural reserves.

Charming beach towns, cultured cities, and countryside beauty – Delaware has it all.
