Northern Delaware

4.1
Often overlooked by tourists, Northern Delaware has much more to offer than simply small-town charm and tax-free shopping. Tucked in the northernmost corner of the state that calls itself the "Small Wonder," Wilmington remains the area's largest city with an energetic arts scene. To explore the cozy countryside, head farther north to the scenic Brandywine Valley, dotted with historic homes, gardens, and mills. The capital Dover boasts a handful of quirky museums, while atmospheric New Castle remains perfect for strolling riverfront neighborhoods filled with 18th-century houses and cobbled streets. Thanks to the proximity of tourist spots, a Northern Delaware vacation allows you to enjoy a white-sand beach and a cute colonial village on the same day. Northern Delaware is in Delaware.
