Where to Stay
Set the mood with the perfect suite for two. For a quaint B&B stay, we recommend the Bank House (a colorful bank-turned-B&B in historic downtown Milford), the Dover’s State Street Inn (a charming inn located on the historic State Street and within walking distance of many of downtown Dover’s attractions), or The Towers (a beautiful Victorian home in Milford listed on the National Register of Historic Places). If you’re looking for more of an all-inclusive vibe, stay at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino — with luxurious AAA Rated Four Diamond hotel accommodations, a full-service spa, state-of-the-art gaming and entertainment, exquisite boutiques and award-winning restaurants and bars, Dover Downs Hotel & Casino offers an unforgettable experience to have with your sweetheart.
Romantic Activities For Two
Make a few memories at the many delightful activities Kent County has to offer. Go couples skating at Harrington’s Centre Ice Rink, where you can twirl in sync (or just try not to fall!). Enjoy the many arts experiences in Delaware’s Quaint Villages, both visual and performing, including at the Smyrna Opera House and the Second Street Players at the Riverfront Theater or at the many art galleries in Milford and Smyrna. And don’t let the chill stop you from taking in the gorgeous natural landscapes throughout Kent County — take a romantic stroll through the winter wonderland at Killens Pond State Park trails near Felton or the Hunn Nature Park along the St. Jones River.
Sips to Savor
After the exhilaration of the outdoors, cozy back up with your honey inside with a tour of the local wine tasting rooms in Delaware’s Quaint Villages. Visit Pizzadili Winery in Felton for an intimate tasting at this family-owned vineyard and winery. Harvest Ridge Winery, on the border of Maryland, is another family-owned winery that offers tastings in a warm, welcoming setting. If you’re looking for a different kind of warming pick-me-up, The House of Coffi is a lovely, rustic gem in downtown Dover brewing up a range of coffee and espresso beverages that will make you feel nice and toasty right away.
Find the Perfect Momento
After such a romantic getaway, you’ll definitely want to pick up a special souvenir to remember it! End your trip with a stroll through the cobblestone streets of historic downtown Dover as you window shop and stop in at the many boutiques and gift shops that line the streets. Visit Suds Bar Soap for artisan soaps, candles and more, discover fun Delaware-themed gifts at the Delaware Store or bring home a one-of-a-kind piece of art from Parke Green Galleries. You’re sure to find a lovely reminder of this romantic getaway that you’ll treasure for years to come.
