Great Escapes

Historic New CastleHave 72 hours to spend in Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley?

This three-day itinerary will give you a taste of everything there is to offer. It starts on Day 1 with a visit to Historic New Castle, where the cobblestone streets tell the story of Delaware's colonial past. That night, experience more modern entertainments at Delaware Park casino and racetrack.

On Day 2, it's time for a northern swing through the Brandywine Valley and the beautiful estates and gardens that await you there - followed dinner and a show in downtown Wilmington.

And no trip to the area would be complete without some shopping time. Day 3 takes you to Christiana Mall, with more than 150 stores (and more on the way), all totally tax-free.
