The Nanticoke Heritage Byway Is A Back Road You Didn’t Know Existed But Is Perfect For A Scenic Drive In Delaware

We’re constantly hearing that rural Sussex county needs some love. After all, most of the slower lower tourists go to the beaches and completely skip the western part of the First State. If you think there’s nothing to do in Sussex County, think again! Exploring Delaware’s back roads is a way to get to know your own backyard a little better.

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/
