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. Explore Wilmington's surroundings by going to Dover (Air Mobility Command Museum, Dover Downs Casino, & more), Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square) and Smyrna (Blue Earl Brewing Company & Painted Stave Distilling). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, take a leisurely stroll along Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Rehoboth Beach Public Beach, and sample the tasty concoctions at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.
