Newark is a city in New Castle County, Delaware, 12mi west-southwest of Wilmington. Get some historical perspective at Valley Forge National Historical Park and Nemours Mansion & Gardens. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Atlantic City Boardwalk and The Playground at Caesars. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Newark: U.S. Naval Academy (in Annapolis), Hagley Museum and Library (in Wilmington) and Emlen Physick Estate (in Cape May). Pack the 9th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Hersheypark. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Longwood Gardens, get answers to all your questions at Delaware Welcome Center Travel Plaza, and get engrossed in the history at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library.
