Anyone who has ventured to Downtown Newark recently will immediately notice that BIG changes have taken place. With the addition of new places of residence, shopping, dining and University of Delaware's development, Downtown Newark is, now more than ever, a viable and worthwhile tourist destination for that traveler looking to find a place to enjoy the aesthetics of yesteryear with the comforts of modernity. You needn't walk along Newark's Main Street long to realize that it is a truly special place and it will come as no surprise to learn that Newark Delaware's Main Street has recently been named a "Great American Main Street." This award marks the beginning of a new era in Downtown Newark and parallels the exciting changes taking place in Downtown Wilmington and the Riverfront.
