Chateaus of the du Ponts

WinterthurThe du Pont family legacy continues in the beautiful estates and grounds that are very much part of Delaware’s past and present. Start the day right outside the city of Wilmington at Nemours Mansion & Garden, and follow it with a visit to the nearby Hagley Museum & Library. Hagley offers a great lunch at the Belin House Organic Café, or you can find a place to dine in the town of Greenville, only a few blocks away.

After lunch, you may need to choose between Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library and the Mt. Cuba Center, both of which can take hours to explore. If you want to hit both, head toward Mt. Cuba first, since it closes earlier.
