Downtown Wilmington & the Riverfront

Exterior of the Queen Theatre, Home of World Cafe LiveVibe: Work to Play
What to do:

Walk the streets where modern office towers exist side-by-side with historic buildings representing three centuries of American architectural style, from Queen Anne to Greek Revival. Visit OLD SWEDES CHURCH and the ROCKS where Peter Minuit and the KALMAR NYCKEL first landed in the New World, or see Delaware's history through the newly renovated DELAWARE HISTORY MUSEUM (re-opening fall 2016). Visit Wilmington's Riverfront, downtown’s most walkable neighborhood offers year-round attractions along its 1.3-mile riverfront – IMAX movies, minigolf, museums, theater, ice skating, nature walks and the brand-new Constitution Yards beer garden.

Macaroons at the HOTEL DU PONT; cheese and charcuterie boards at DOMAINE HUDSON; The Dirty Burger with scrapple and fried egg at CHELSEA TAVERN
