Must See Sites in Delaware City, Delaware {Kid Tips Too!}

Everyone once in awhile you find yourself in cool little town. And if you're like me you have your own little "Gilmore Girls" moment, while in said town. That's what happened to me when I visited Delaware City, Delaware! I fell in love with this small town, with his big history, adorable shops, white gazebo and amazing food! Here are some must see sites and things to do in Delaware City!

1. Fort Delaware - of course its at the top of the list because I would venture to say its the main tourist attraction here in the town. You come for the history, but stay for so much more. This fort was probably the coolest of all the ones I've ever been to {and I've been to a ton, and on both coasts!}. The docents and actors were amazing. The kids were super involved. There were areas to run around, stairs to climb and crevices to peak into. They saw a cannon, blast, rifle demonstrations, and actually got to blacksmith. NO JOKE! I've never ever seen that before anywhere. With the assistance of some docents my two oldest got to make an "S" hook and a spoon. For five dollars my eight year old got to actually have a dream, wish type of experience. Ever since he was six and went to Coloma (Northern California) for the first time he's been absolutely obsessed with blacksmithing. Plus, riding a ferry to get there was pretty cool.







~ Parent note: you can pack a lunch and bring it on the island with you. There are picnic tables and grassy areas (watch out for the goose poop!). Souvenirs and snacks are also ridiculously reasonable in prices! I snagged a bonnet and two civil war hats for $6.00 each. They are awesome!

2. GeoCaching and Boat Watching in the Square - As a geocaching family we, of course, had to see what was what! Unfortunately it started to pour rain on us the first day so we could only snag one; but there is one right in the square.  Huge boats come right by the square and the kids had a marvelous time watching the boats and laughing as the water splashed up on them!!! They could have stayed longer but we had to skidaddle.

3. Lewinsky's On Clinton  - Yup, you read that right! A restaurant that cleverly uses the name of the main street in town, 'Clinton Street' in its name. It was a must-see place that we didn't have time for. Since the hubby was only able to be with us on one of the days there we had to make the most of our time. We didn't get a chance to swing in and check it out, but you better believe it is on my bucket list. I don't even care if the food sucks, I want to go just so that I can say that we ate there!

4. Cordelia's Bakery and Cafe - This adorable Cafe and Bakery would be the place I would be hanging out, or going to every day if I lived in Delaware City. With bread and desserts made fresh daily and the sweetest staff ever, Cordelia's is the perfect stop for lunch during your visit here.



5. Ice Cream Parlor - its simply called 'Ice Cream Parlor' and is located at the end of Clinton Street near the water. This is a no-frills, old fashioned ice cream shop. They have lots of fun flavors and the servings are huge. There are some places to sit, but this is a take and go, walk around the square, go sit in the grass type of area.
