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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
