Wilmington is the largest city in the state of Delaware, United States, built on the site of Fort Christina, the first Swedish settlement in North America. Start off your visit on the 25th (Wed): walk around Glasgow Park, get engrossed in the history at Hagley Museum and Library, and then get engrossed in the history at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library. On the next day, contemplate the long history of Nemours Estate, bet on a winner at Dover Downs Casino, and then sample the tasty concoctions at Blue Earl Brewing Company.

Plan my trip to Wilmington with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

New York City to Wilmington is an approximately 2-hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from New York City in September since evenings lows in Wilmington dip to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can go by car to Rehoboth Beach.
