Greater Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley are just a short distance from all points in the Mid-Atlantic region and minutes off the I-95 corridor. While we are close to so many – ideal for a quick weekend getaway – you will feel as if you have been transported to a different land. The rolling hills and magnificent estates of Chateau country recall the French countryside. The colonial hamlets, of Old New Castle and Historic Odessa, untouched by time, give you the feeling of an English country village. And our six grand gardens, all part of America's Garden Capital, encompass over 3,000 acres and lie within minutes of one another.
