Delaware on Your Next Road Trip
Delaware on Your Next Road Trip by Woodall's Editorial Staff
Delaware boasts rivers, swamplands,
lakes, forests, grasslands and a more than respectable 90 miles of Atlantic
coastline. When its square mileage measure is taken into consideration,
the "First State" tallies up on the small side, but Delaware still manages
to pack a powerful punch in terms of natural attractions. Delaware campgrounds
are close by many attractions, and Delaware RV camping resorts offer even
This state's central region
contains two stand-out National Wildlife Refuges. Bombay Hook is in Smyrna
on the western shore of Delaware Bay and Prime Hook is just 22 miles southeast
of Delaware's capital city of Dover. Both refuges were established to preserve
coastal wetlands to serve as stopping points for migrating waterfowl. Together,
they encompass nearly 30,000 acres of suitable nesting and feeding grounds
for a generous variety of bird species such as snow geese, black ducks,
peregrine falcons and barred owls. Visitors can view or photograph wildlife
from inside their vehicles on Bombay's self-guided automobile tour. Those
who prefer to travel on foot can enjoy the sights from an assortment of
observation towers and nature trails, of which one is fully accessible
to the handicapped. Activities such as hunting, hiking, boating, canoeing
and crabbing are all permitted.

The southeastern coast is
the home of a very popular vacation destination - Delaware Seashore State
Park. It's no wonder that tourists and residents alike flock to this mecca
of sand, sun, surf and non-stop watersports. The Atlantic Ocean forms this
seashore's eastern border; its western edge is flanked by the waters of
Rehoboth and Indian River Bays. Visitors find inviting beaches and two
developed swimming areas with lifeguards on hand during summer months.
Inlet and oceanside surf fishing and a special access pier entertain anglers
of all ages and physical abilities. The park's Thompson Island Preserve,
a fine example of a thriving salt marsh, is located in Rehoboth Bay, just
northwest of Indian River Inlet. Delaware campgrounds are close by. Designated
beach areas are reserved for surfers and surf fishermen, and select dune
crossing areas provide all-terrain vehicles with convenient beach entry.
Delaware Seashore's shallow bays are popular spots for sailors, windsurfers,
clam diggers and crabbers. A short nature trail offers interesting views
of shorebirds' nesting colonies, surrounding bay islands and salt marshes.
The annual Sandcastle Contest attracts some of the finest amateur sand
sculptors on the Mid-Atlantic coast.

hotels in Georgetown. De
|Georgetown is a town in
Sussex County, Delaware, United States. According to 2006 Census Bureau
estimates, the population of the town is 4,927. It is the county
seat of Sussex County. Georgetown is part of the Seaford, Delaware
Micropolitan Statistical Area.
Every two years, Georgetown
hosts an unusual event known as "Return day", a half-day-long parade and
festival two days after Election Day. Stemming from the colonial days in
which the public would congregate in Georgetown two days after the election
to hear the results (because it would take that long to deliver the results
to the courthouse by horseback), the winners of that year's political races
parade around The Circle in carriages with the losers and the chairs of
the county's political parties ceremonially "bury the hatchet" in a tub
of sand. The afternoon of Return Day is a holiday for county and state
workers in Sussex County, and the event is marked by a traditional ox feast,
much revelry, and, of course, the beginning of the next round of campaigns.
Many in Delaware feel that the state's traditionally chummy and staid political
climate is due in large part to the Return Day tradition.
Georgetown is somewhat unique
among Delaware municipalities in that the center of the town is built around
a circle, instead of the more traditional parklike square. Straddling "The
Circle", as it is unsurprisingly called, is the Town Hall; state and county
buildings, including the historic Sussex County Courthouse (the original
Courthouse was replaced by the current structure which was built 1837 on
South Bedford Street. It was further restored in 1976 and it currently
serves as the home of the Georgetown Historical Society); lawyers' offices;
a bank, and the Brick Hotel, which has recently completed renovation. This
layout is similar to that found in Annapolis, Maryland, except that, unlike
in Annapolis, where the State House is the focal point of the circle, the
center of Georgetown's circle is a small park with a fountain. Georgetown's
oldest church, St. Paulís Episcopal Church dates to 1794 and is built in
the Victorian Gothic style.
