Best Undiscovered Secret
Critics, downstate: Chris and Lori Schell love boating on the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. “It is absolutely beautiful in the summer, and you’d never know you were in Delaware because, in many places, you can’t see any signs of civilization,” Chris says. “It is extremely peaceful back there and is a unique experience like no other. You can go crabbing or just simply go exploring. My wife and I take our kids boating in the bays and canals every weekend, and we love it.”
Critics, upstate: It’s not just Brandywine Creek that Castle admires. “It’s the river after a rainstorm or snowmelt,” he says, when the creek swells with runoff and moves fast. Cammarato enjoys the views while hiking at Brandywine Creek State Park.
Critics, downstate: “There’s something about the view up the Delaware coastline going north on Indian River Inlet or bridge,” says Castle. “I have always felt that Delaware’s coastline is one of the state’s most beautiful assets. On a clear day, from the bridge, the view of the coastline and water is absolutely breathtaking.”
Best Warm Weather Fun
Critics, downstate: If it’s spring or summer, the Cullens are probably cycling at Cape Henlopen State Park. There are four biking trails: the 3.3-mile bike trail; the 1.5-mile Walking Dunes Trail; the 5.2-mile Junction & Breakwater Trail; and the 0.7-mile Gordons Pond Trail.
