Stay Overnight At An Old WWII Fort Right Here In Delaware

Delaware is full of history, and much of it is on display! You can step back in time with a meal at Jessop’s Tavern, sail the Kalmar Nyckel, or even walk along the Mason-Dixon Line. Though Delawareans are not new to historic adventures, nothing can ever quite live up to camping at Cape Henlopen State Park, where you’ll be sleeping amongst the spirits of American soldiers who were once stationed at this abandoned World War II fort.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
