Delaware’s amazing botanical gardens make for amazing day trips in the spring, too.

Does Delaware have any natural wonders?

Lots of people overlook Delaware when it comes to being full of natural beauty. We’re more than a stretch of I-95! In Northern Delaware, you can find a hidden healing spring in Brandywine Springs Park. The spring was recently unearthed. In the past, it had been so popular that an entire amusement park was built here. Further downstate, Trap Pond State Park features a huge grove of bald cypress trees that grow straight out of the water. It’s truly a sight to see! Of course, you can’t forget the dunes of Cape Henlopen! Our seaside ecosystem is so diverse and supports so much flora and fauna.
