Wilmington

Whether you're here for a short trip away or a longer vacation, Wilmington is one of those destinations that you'll remember forever.

This area of Delaware contains about 71,000 people.

Dover, the state capital, is about 40 miles south of Wilmington, and Penns Grove is 4 miles to the east.

Escape the adult world and be transported into a place of magic and wonder at Frightland and Hullabaloo Amusement Center. Delaware Rock Gym and Bowlerama are also great places to visit if the little ones aren't too worn out.

You'll have a ball seeing the rare and exotic creatures at the Brandywine Zoo. If you are pressed for time, stop by the information counter and collect a map so you can quickly find the park favorites.

If you'd like to learn more about the local flora, a visit to the Mt. Cuba Center and the University of Delaware Botanic Gardens is a wonderful idea.

Pack a picnic basket and enjoy the leafy surroundings of Christina Park and Rockford Park. Fort Christina Park and Burton Brown Winchester Park are two more nice places to while away a lazy afternoon and finally read that neglected book of yours.

With plenty of tourist information on hand, DuPont Environmental Education Center is a good place to find out what's going on in Wilmington.

Turn off your phone and give yourself a break from the noise of the modern world at Fort Delaware State Park and Brandywine Creek State Park. Lums Pond State Park and Alapocas Woods Park are also appreciated by nature-loving travelers.

For something on the educational side, spend the afternoon perusing some of the area's excellent cultural establishments. Three places worth a visit are the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame, the Wilmington and Western Railroad and the Delaware Toy & Miniature Museum.

Accounts of this area's nautical traditions are embodied in the pieces of remnant vessels found at the Kalmar Nyckel Museum and Shipyard.

Take the kids to view many scientific artifacts, models and displays at Mount Cuba Astronomical Observatory, the most recognized science center in the area.

The preserved specimens at the Delaware Museum of Natural History aren't just a lot of fun to look at. They also play an important role in helping us understand the world we live in.

Enjoy the artistic side of things at one of the many gallery spaces. It's easy to spend a few hours reveling in the inspiring atmosphere of the Delaware Art Museum, the Andre Harvey Studio and the Sommerville Manning Gallery.

History buffs will enjoy spending the afternoon at the Hagley Museum and Library, where they can learn about tomorrow by examining the past. In addition to that, you just might like to take a look at the hands-on materials at the Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library and the Rockwood Park and Museum.

The University of Delaware and Amstel House are certainly worth planning a trip to, even if you're not that into history. When it comes to bygone times, the stories are countless. Historic Houses of Odessa and George Read II House are also great places to check out.

The world's religions are a rich and complex tapestry. Wherever you travel, this is reflected in a county's customs, traditions and design. Are you interested in learning about Wilmington's spiritual side? Go for a stroll around Old Swedes Church, Saint Anthony of Padua Church and Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

This region's most celebrated sights often overshadow its less touristy, yet equally fascinating activities. Kirkwood Soccer Complex and the Delaware Park Racetrack and Slots might be just what you're after. Also, contemplate seeing Fairfield Park and Kells Park if you've got the time.
