A Drive Down Delaware’s Loneliest Road Will Take You Miles And Miles Away From It All

Delaware’s a crowded state above the canal, but lucky for us, there’s plenty of space to stretch out in Slower, Lower. It’s nice to take the time to appreciate our rural surroundings with a scenic drive – but oftentimes, those drives are straight through the country, heading down to Trap Pond or maybe out to Harvest Ridge Winery. Don’t forget about the bayshore, which is the largest tract of preserved marshland on the east coast! Delaware’s ecological diversity is on display on quiet Route 9, where you can sometimes drive for miles and not see anyone beyond the bay gulls and birds that call these marshlands home.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
