Spring is a beautiful time of year when flowers bloom, birds sing and throwing axes is a fun Friday night out. #VisitWilm has something for every kind of couple. Whether you are adventurous and outdoorsy or in need of a quiet night to reconnect, Greater Wilmington will help the sparks fly!
For those couples that want to “Feel Like a Kid Again” …
Hang out and spend your day on Wilmington’s Riverfront.
Play a round of miniature golf with a beautiful front row view of the river, grab some ice cream, and take in a night game at Frawley Stadium. Cheer on the Wilmington Blue Rocks and snap a picture with Rocky and Mr. Celery, even laugh along to the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo (Yes, you heard that right) during their May 24th and August 30th games. When the game’s over, take a stroll along the riverside hopping in and out of restaurants and bars (for a bit of adult fun!) Enjoy your night and let the worries of “adulting” vanish for a few hours.
For the laid back and relaxed couple…
Explore and re-connect with an old-fashioned road trip!
Pack some snacks, gas up and get ready to take a scenic drive through the First State. Travel through the hills, around twisting roads, and up and down the coast with four different scenic explorations. Adventure on the Route 9 Coastal Heritage Byway to experience the largest preserved coastal marshland on the East Coast or explore history on the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway. Whether it be 15 minutes or an all-day adventure, you will be able to lose yourselves in the talking and laughing together again.
For the “On a Budget” Couple…
Take advantage of all the FREE things to do around town!
Greater Wilmington wants you to enjoy your #VisitWilm experience with any type of budget. From free museum days, to national wildlife refuges, festivals and more… impress and let the good times roll without even taking out your wallet.
For the couple in need of a Romantic Night Out…
Romance is in the Air and a romantic Weekend Getaway is right around the corner.
Spend your day roaming around Va La Vineyeards, a family-run winery bringing northern Italy and France right to the Brandywine Valley. Take in the relaxing atmosphere and the gorgeous views while wine tasting in their century-old barn. Follow up an amazing day, with an even better night at the Inn at Whitewing Farm. Sit by the fire, relax and reconnect with your significant other. We bet, you’ll need to book your room for an extended stay.
Lastly, we have THE date for those couples in need of a true adrenaline rush.
