Stop and Smell the Roses
After the chill of the winter, take time to relax in Delaware’s Quaint Villages. Lodge in comfort at a charming bed and breakfast, like The Bank House or The Towers in Milford. This artistic town is perfect for a couples or girlfriends getaway. Explore the Milford Art Stroll and the many galleries along the banks of the Mispillion River, and tour the Sunnybrae Mansion for a glimpse of life in this historic home. Over in Dover, enjoy high tea at Tea for Two, a cozy tea house serving gourmet loose leaf teas. After all, it is called spring “break!”
Kick It Into Gear
Looking for a mix of rest and activity? Enjoy the best of both worlds — and the great outdoors — as you explore the many nature preserves throughout Delaware’s Quaint Villages. Get the gang back together for golf at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Course in Magnolia, or fish along the pier at Woodland Beach in Smyrna. After the exhilaration of the fresh air, take it a little slower with a meandering tour of the many wineries and breweries in Kent County, from Pizzadili Vineyard & Winery (for a more romantic vibe) to Mispillion River Brewing (for a fun night out with the guys).
