The Place In Delaware That Makes You Feel Like You’ve Stepped Through A Magical Wardrobe

The grand gardens of Winterthur, Nemours and the Hagley estate are well known to many Delawareans, but perhaps the most magical garden in the state is hiding behind a big, imposing brick wall, tucked away behind one of the busiest Wilmington streets.

The Marion Coffin Gardens at Gibraltar are open to the public, for free, from dawn to dusk year round. If you’re looking for a beautiful, scenic day trip, combine a trip to Gibraltar with a stop by Wilmington’s other hidden garden, the Goodstay Gardens, just up the road.
