8 Places In Delaware That Are Better Than Anywhere Else In The Country
Some of the most breathtaking places in the country are right here in Delaware. We have wildlife refuges, historic towns, and the best beaches in the world. Whenever you’re looking for a place to really see the beauty in America, check out these spots right here in your backyard.
1. Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge
Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge is one of the most significant bird sanctuaries in the world. Every year, rare migratory birds stop here on their way north or south for the seasons, and thousands of visitors walk the trails spotting these gorgeous animals.
2. Dewey Beach
Dewey Beach is the nation's beach party town. Not only can you find the best crabcakes in the state at Woody's, but you can catch amazing concerts at the Bottle and Cork or during the Dewey Beach Music Conference. Dewey combines amazing food, spectacular entertainment, and a gorgeous beach to create the perfect vacation town.
Historic Georgetown is one of the most unique towns in Delaware, and it's a charming place to spend some time. Step back in time during the traditional Return Day, grab a scrapple sandwich at Wilson's, or dine at any of the mouthwatering taco spots downtown.
4. Rehoboth Beach
Rehoboth Beach is the nation's vacation town. The award-winning, clean beaches meet the impressive boardwalk that's crowded with the best summer foods you'll ever have. I can just smell a bucket of Thrasher's fries right now!
5. The DuPont Corridor
Delaware's DuPont corridor is a unique part of the Brandywine Valley where you'll find elaborate mansions and estates, ornate gardens that are among the best in the world, and so many historic sites that it is hard to list them all. You could easily spend a week visiting each spot that the DuPonts owned and built in their storied time in the First State.
6. Cape Henlopen State Park
Cape Henlopen State Park is unique in that you can stumble upon a World War II fort while you're hiking. Climb a watchtower for an unbelievable view, or drive down early to catch a sunrise on the point.
7. Prime Hook National Wildlife Refgue
Though it is smaller than Bombay Hook, Prime Hook is just as beautiful. Drive through this hidden gem along the bay will show you some of the most impressive scenery in America.
8. Brandywine Creek State Park
Brandywine Creek State Park is proof that gorgeous parks can exist in urban areas. The park is technically in Wilmington, but it will bring you far away from the busy city life with its trails, bridges, and streams.
While all of these beautiful places are among the best in the country, our wildlife refuges really stand out. Read more about
