About Delaware

Experience the Best of the Northeast

Wilmington, Delaware

Nestled between Philadelphia and Baltimore, Wilmington, Delaware, is an affordable city with easy access to many major east coast destinations. Hop on a train or take a drive, and you can be in Center City Philadelphia in about 30 minutes, Baltimore in an hour, the Delaware beaches in an hour and a half, and New York and Washington, D.C., in just two hours.

Downtown Wilmington is a well-known financial capital, but the city also has an active arts and entertainment scene with museums, a minor league ballpark, an IMAX movie theater, restaurants, breweries, and four major stages – hosting everything from traveling Broadway musicals to indie folk bands – all within walking distance of downtown.

Outside the city, the Brandywine Valley is an area of great natural beauty, with well-maintained state parks, an extensive network of hiking and biking trails, and museums and gardens that have become international tourism destinations.
