Exploring These WWII Ruins In Delaware Will Take You Back In Time

In the shadow of the tall observation towers that line the Cape Henlopen Coast lies abandoned World War II ruins at Fort Miles Historic Area, which is open for exploration year-round. Visit 1940s bunkers and batteries, see machine guns up-close, and even climb a tower to relive the area’s involvement in the Second World War. It’s truly an incredible experience for anyone interested in the history of the Delmarva region.
