Day 2

Start your day off the right way by not starting it at all – take the morning to sleep in and just laze about in bed. When you do leave the comfort of your hotel, spend the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon diving deep into Delaware’s natural beauty at Killens Pond State Park. Stroll around the edge of the 79-acre pond and, if you are feeling adventurous, rent a canoe, kayak, rowboat, or pedal boat to venture upstream on the Murderkill River.

Cap the day off with a scenic meal: McGlynns Pub & Restaurant sits right on Silver Lake, offering amazing, placid views. It’s the perfect place to sit back with a cold beer (their selection includes more than 50 brews!) and relax. Check out the menu’s delicious options: from their famous burgers and roast beef sandwiches to southwestern dishes and even a happy hour buffet! This meal with a lake view is the perfect way to cap off your quaint getaway in Kent County.
