Head down to the beautiful White Clay Creek.
This Delaware state park is a hidden wonder, just on the outskirts of Newark. The shallow creek winds through some of the best scenery in Delaware.

Be sure to follow the rules of where you can and cannot walk! Luckily, Cape Henlopen State Park has many marked trails that take you through the dunes that protect the entrance to the Delaware Bay.
Experience the northernmost Bald Cypress Trees in Delaware at Trap Pond State Park.
This unique habitat is hard to find this far north, but somehow, these incredible trees make their home in Laurel, Delaware.
Enjoy the serenity of Kent County's largest pond at Killens Pond State Park.
There's so much to do at Killens Pond, including a water park in the summer, but be sure to take time to just stroll through the peaceful trails and observe the natural diversity around you.
The Augustine Wildlife Area is another hidden Delaware wonder.
The Ashton Tract features binoculars and telescopes to help you enjoy the best birding in Delaware. Keep an eye out for the Wildlife Area's Bald Eagles!
Finally, see how magical even our urban areas can be, at the Russell W Peterson Urban Wildlife Refuge.
This unique sanctuary in Wilmington will show you just how ecologically diverse even our most urban areas are. This place is paradise.
