Though I only spent an evening in Wilmington, I was surprised to discover how the city had developed. Tucked between Trenton, Philadelphia, and DC, this bustling town is seeing a resurgence in food culture and locals working to craft its own identity amongst these established metropolitan centers.
I arrived at their station mid day, eager to check in and rest after a busy northeast tour. The team from Wilmington had invited me to dinner at Bardea and I wanted to relax before the big night. I dropped my bags and strolled over to a pharmacy to pick up some travel remedies and a good face mask. I can not emphasize how important self care is during a trip this long and that starts with carving out time to care for one’s body.
