As the second smallest state in the nation, you might expect that there isn't much to do in Delaware; however, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that despite its small stature, there are actually a ton of things to do here, especially in the city of Wilmington. A vibrant mixture of cultures, a lively art scene and a wide range of restaurants like Henry s, shops and cafes such as the Juggling Gypsy, all make this city worth a visit.
The Wilmington Riverfront is one of the most happening places. Here, you'll find walking paths, breweries like Flytrap, exhibitions and live performances. The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts showcases cutting-edge exhibits. At the Delaware History Museum, you'll learn all about how the first state in the nation came to be.
Once you fly to Wilmington International Airport (ILM), use taxis or car rental services, found at the airport, to make your way into the city.
Hints and tips
Once you check in, satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst with a microbrew and some pub grub at the Iron Hill Brewery on the Riverfront.
While there's plenty to do in Wilmington, you might want to try squeezing in a trip to the nation's capital. Washington DC is very easily accessible, as it is only a 90 minute train ride from Wilmington.
