Delaware Hotel Reservations
Spring’s shimmer returns to the Diamond State and communities from Wilmington and Bear to Dewey Beach rejoice, inviting visitors to join in with all sorts of celebrations. Special events, concerts, festivals, and more family-friendly fun – it’s a great time to visit Delaware.
Spring blooms present an opportunity to explore Delaware’s lush landscape in one of its most beautiful phases. Cover the most ground by packing up the car and embarking on a scenic driving tour. Wilmington, near the state’s northernmost point, makes a great starting point and countless roadside attractions provide plenty of reasons to get out and stretch along the way.
Ride the rails of the Wilmington and Western Railroad to see a less-often seen side of Delaware’s Red Clay Valley. Head to Greenbank Station in Wilmington to board the 1860s-era train for the opportunity for a “hands-on-history” experience.
Theatre buffs won’t want to miss the chance to see a live retelling of a literary classic this spring. To Kill a Mockingbird gets the stage treatment at Wilmington’s Roselle Center for the Arts, March 3rd through 20th.
This April, Country music fans make their way to Dover see Josh Turner. The relative newcomer has made a quick ascent to household-name stardom, churning out hits like “Lay Low” and “Would you Go With Me.” See him perform at the Dover Downs Casino on April 30th at 8 p.m.
Some of the biggest names in music come to Dover a couple months later. The 2016 Firefly Music Festival is June 16th through 19th at the Woodlands at Dover International Speedway. Headlining acts include the likes of CHVRCHES, Tame Impala, Earth Wind & Fire, and Fetty Wap. “Save that money” by getting your tickets now – the festival is sure to sell out, and resale ticket prices can skyrocket.
If you get hungry in the mean time, head to Dewey Beach on April 23rd and 24th for the 2016 Dewey Beach Bacon Fest. Samples of savory bacon overflow from 22 different restaurants throughout Dewey Beach and neighboring Rehoboth Beach as attendees keep track of their favorite flavors, determining who wins the award “Best Bacon on the Beach.” Check out the iDewey Visitor Information Center for more information.
