Did you know there’s a Utopian town hiding just outside of Wilmington? As you stroll through the streets you’ll encounter performers, friendly faces, beautiful artisan shops and architecture that’s unique to this little corner of New Castle County. Every time I visit, it reminds me of stepping back in time, or into a storybook – I can almost see the Disney characters walking the streets with birds on their shoulders. Arden is an incredible town with an incredible past, and you absolutely must visit.

There are so many unique towns in Delaware that it’s hard to say if I have a favorite… but Arden may just hold that top spot! There are a few other incredible hidden gems in the First State that you’ll also love – like the Historic New Castle, and the lovely, diverse Georgetown.
