There’s Nothing Better Than Delaware’s Natural Lazy River On A Summer’s Day

One of my favorite parts of going to the waterpark is spending hours adrift in the lazy river. There’s only one thing that’s more relaxing – spending hours adrift in a real river, surrounded by the sound of flowing water and birds chirping in the trees. Luckily, Delaware is home to one of the best tubing rivers around. Our beloved Brandywine meanders quietly through northern Delaware, flowing gently enough that anyone can go for a relaxing float or paddle, even if they’ve never been on a river before. Check out all of the fun you can have, right here in New Castle County!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Brandywine River has several drop-in points along Ramsey Road, and you can always go for a paddle or float with your own equipment. Just remember to keep an eye on weather and river conditions so that your trip is safe and relaxing!

After you’ve completed your paddle or float, refuel and grab some great food at one of Delware’s most beautiful restaurants – three of them are located right in Wilmington!
