Hockessin is a little getaway in northern Delaware, not far from busy Wilmington. Explore the town and you'll find charming shops and restaurants, old train tracks, historic covered bridges, and the stunning scenery of the Red Clay Creek.
Middletown might not be "little" by Delaware's standards, but it's still got that small town feel on Main Street. Enjoy a meal at Sully's Irish Pub and check out the shops and galleries all around you.
I could spend all day exploring the circle area of Georgetown. This historic Delaware small town is so beautiful - and full of amazing restaurants.
4. Rehoboth Beach
Rehoboth Beach is Delaware's resort town, and it's full of life all year round. In fact, many people like to visit best in the off season, when the tourists go home but the locals keep the shops and restaurants open.
5. Dewey Beach
Visiting Dewey in Summer and Winter is like visiting two completely different towns. This pretty town quiets down a lot when Labor Day comes, and it's one of the most peaceful coastal towns in the state from September to May.
6. Fenwick Island
Fenwick is a small town just north of Ocean City, MD, so it's got a fun mix of touristy Sunsations stores and charming small town boutiques. The restaurants here that stay open year round are worth the drive down from New Castle County.
7. Bethany Beach
Compared to the other Beach towns, Bethany is the quietest year round. The nature center is the perfect place to bring your family for an educational and fun day trop, and it's one of the pretty small towns in Delaware that everyone loves.
Milford is the most charming river town in Delaware, and no matter when you visit, you'll fall in love. Check it out soon to enjoy the last of the fall foliage before winter begins.
Laurel is one of the most underrated small towns in Delaware. It's full of history and absolutely surrounded by natural beauty! Visit Trap Pond State Park and dine at Abbott's on the Waterfront for a scenic stay in this pretty small town in Delaware.
