Warmer weather, Peeps & Jelly Beans, spring flowers and that white fuzzy cuddly bunny – yep, it’s EASTER! Along with heaping baskets of candy, here’s a few EGG-citing options to enjoy in and around North Delaware.
Take a Walk in the Park.
North Delaware is home to two Nationally recognized parks – Woodlawn and New Castle Green. Step back in time and experience Delaware’s Colonial past.
Woodlawn – Explore the Brandywine Valley landscapes and trails that open space pioneer William Bancroft envisioned to enrich lives of urban dwellers. The Woodlawn Tract is located at the northernmost tip of Delaware in the beautiful Brandywine Valley. The property provides a taste of what Delaware was like when first contact took place between Indians and Europeans. It is a small part of a large manor established by William Penn and reflects early Quaker settlement patterns.
New Castle Green The Green is the center of New Castle’s government and business district. It is surrounded by historic buildings dating to the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. In addition to the Court House, the Sheriff’s House, the Arsenal and the Academy buildings (1809 and 1789, respectively), and Immanuel Episcopal Church (1689) surround the Green.
The perfect day to feast with the family. Many local restaurants are having brunch; Toscana, Columbus Inn, Big Fish and Limoncello to name a few. Reservations are strongly suggested. Call ahead.
Attend a Church Service.
Easter Sunday is one day when all denominations are welcome. Visit a new church. Take in the sermon and circumstance. Unite and celebrate peace and harmony with your community.
Not all retail stores are open for business on Sunday but the malls sure are and you can bet there will be spring sale extravaganzas. Grab the family or go it alone.
Bounce off those extra calories.
Stratosphere Trampoline Park is open for business and the Bunny will be there. This could be your last time to see him!
