Not-to-Miss Greater Wilmington Attractions

History. Culture. Gardens.

Wilmington & the Brandywine Valley have been described as town and garden, historic and hip, beauty and brains, and past and present.  It is like a riveting, romantic tale of two cultures, two centuries… even two different worlds.  Wilmington is the town side of the equation, the urban hub were 21st century thrives as a cultural renaissance is underway.  Four-star restaurants, fine art and world-class entertainment share space with tax-free shopping from big box to boutique.

Travel north into the Brandywine Valley and the visual landscape quickly transforms to a different time and place.  Here the elegant estates and glorious gardens of a bygone era are a testament to the influence of the du Pont family.  Reminiscent of a Downton Abbey episode.
