Historic New Castle is full of the oldest buildings in the state, and many of them are open to tour. The Courthouse is a must-see, and Jessop's Tavern will complete your experience by serving you colonial food in a colonial atmosphere. On a nice day, walk around Battery Park for some amazing views of the river as well.
The Former Civil War Prison With The Deadly But True History
If you love spooky things, plan to visit Fort Delaware - especially in October, when they offer hours and hours of paranormal tours. This time of year, it's lovely to visit the grounds and walk the prison camp trails while reflecting on the history that these walls have seen.
The Most Criminally Overlooked Town in the State
From crystal clear water and bright sand to the boutiques and markets that Fenwick Island has to offer, it's a wonder that this town isn't crowded year round! Luckily for some of us, it's a great escape from the usual crowds after Memorial Day. Sssh - keep it a secret!

The Delaware Town That's Surrounded By Natural Beauty
Laurel is a breathtaking town that's home to Trap Pond State Park. Paddle out between the fascinating Baldcypress Trees, camp in one of the gorgeous cabins, and dine like royalty (well, maybe like Poseidon) on the outdoor deck at Abbott's. This little town is quiet and charming year-round.
The Incredible Town In Delaware That's Straight Out Of A Fairytale
Arden is the most incredible secret Delaware is hiding - you can visit this Utopian village and join the dining gild for dinner, see a show from the Shakespeare gild, or catch a concert in the Arden Concert Hall.
