Visiting Delaware | Fall 2014

The rich, bold palate of colors fall uses to paint the landscape of Delaware can be best enjoyed on a fall foliage driving tour, and from Wilmington in the north to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, communities across the state provide plenty of reasons to pull over along the way.

If you're traveling with a designated driver, why not follow the Delaware Wine and Ale Trail? A collection of thirteen of the states finest wineries and breweries, the trail features stops like Fordham and Dominion Brewing Co. in Dover, Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes, and Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats in Rehoboth Beach, just north of Dewey Beach. Before hitting the trail, download a special passport and collect codes at each stop. Get eight codes and send your passport to the Delaware Tourism Office to receive a limited edition Delaware Wine and Ale trail wine glass or mug.

Wilmington finds foodies flocking to Tubman Garrett Riverfront Park on October 12th. Celebrating the tradition of the Italian Grape Harvest, the 11th Annual Vendemmia da Vinci Wine and Food Festival invites attendees to sample Italian wines and food, participate in silent auctions, browse Italian-themed vendor displays, and even compete in handcrafted wine and home-made gravy contests.

The Dover International Speedway – touted as "the world's fastest one-mile oval" – hosts one of racing's biggest weekends, September 26th through 28th, complete with appearances by superstars like Danica Patrick and Jeff Gordon. Sure to draw giant crowds, the triple-header includes the NASCAR Drive Sober 150 on Friday, the Nationwide Series on Saturday, and the AAA 400 on Sunday.

It's not too chilly for the animals of Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Smyrna just yet. Encompassing over 16,000 acres, the area is a refuge for a true diversity of wildlife – from spring shorebirds, fall waterfowl, summer wading birds, and songbirds to deer, beavers, red foxes, turtles, frogs, and more. Walk along your choice of five different walking trails to get up close and personal with the creatures, or climb up one of three observation towers for a breathtaking view of the surrounding cordgrass meadows, tidal pools, and tidal salt marshes.
