There is no place quite like Delaware. Escape to ?Chateau Country? for riveting landscapes made famous by Andrew Wyeth?s paintings. Watch the sun rise over the ocean at the Great Dune near Lewes and a great blue heron as it takes flight from the marshlands of Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge. This year, retrace history along the Nanticoke and Broad Creek rivers with the Captain John Smith Reenactment Voyage.
Our state capital, Dover, is home to one of the most beautifully preserved capitol complexes in the nation, captured by the First State Heritage Park. Old New Castle is a charming town to visit with its original cobblestone streets, colonial homes and guided historical tours. And don?t forget the coastal town of Lewes, which tells the story of Delaware?s seafaring past that dates back to the 1600s.
Enjoy the best opera, dance, drama and music or get inspired by a showcase of galleries featuring our state?s finest artists. Shop tax-free at Delaware?s brand name outlet stores, boutiques and antique shops.
