Nice park for a picnic. It has an interesting water park in it. It wasn't open during our visit. Too early in the season. But I would like to visit when it was open. Park seems well keep.

This Brewery has such a cozy & welcoming feeling - even dog-friendly! The samples are a perfect size to try out the so-many varieties offered. I love that they want you to hang out & play their many board games...I'm looking forward to having a Beer Game Night here sometime soon!

The Quillen Arena

Reviewed By daisyferret1 - Delaware

Went here the other day for a presidential candidate rally. We were excited to attend this one since this is the first time we can recall a presidential candidate ever visiting the First State! As you can imagine, the traffic going in was pretty congested due to the "celebrity" event. Staff did an OK job getting people in and parked in the designated areas for the rally. Once in the lot, we had to walk in through the main gates and down a paved path/road to the arena. Along the walk we encountered several vendors selling rally event merchandise. At the end of the walkway we entered into a separate pavilion where we were searched by security and went through metal detectors. From here, we were permitted to enter into the actual arena. The arena itself was rather large and spacious inside. It was basically a really large covered pavilion. They had bleacher seating along both long sides. On the small ends, they had an exit into an area with food vendors and port-a-potties. The floor of the arena was dirt. During the event, we saw a few people escorted out by security for disturbances and also a few people taken out by EMS for unrelated issues. Everything went smoothly.

Overall, we had a good time at the rally. It was a peaceful event and felt very safe. The arena was decent, but nothing spectacular. Just an open air covered pavilion and some bleacher seating (website says 2700 seats). Parking is abundant. I would go to an event here in the future.

Note: This is also the site of the Harrington State Fair Grounds, Harrington Casino & Raceway and the Centre Ice Rink.

Abbott's Mill Nature Center

Abbott’s Mill Nature Center encompasses a picturesque pond surrounded by meadows, streams, woodlands, swamps, wetlands, a historic gristmill, and a modern education building. At the heart of Abbott’s is the 377-acre Milford Millponds Nature Preserve, where 5 miles of free trails wind their way through woodlands to meadows as wildflowers, birds, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and insects flourish. Additionally, our 108-acre Marvel Saltmarsh Preserve, located in the Town of Slaughter Beach, is used for seasonal education programs and hosts a new pair of nesting Ospreys. Built in 1802, and on the National Register of Historic Places, Ainsworth Abbott’s Mill is a preserved, working gristmill run solely by a water turbine, and features both a stone & roller mill operation. Public tours of the Mill are offered every 3rd Saturday, March – November, from 2 – 3:30 pm. Educational programs for the public, schools, and scouts are offered year-round for all ages. Our Visitor Center is pet friendly and offers a variety of free exhibits including an aquatic touch tank. Abbott’s serves as a partnership between the Delaware Division of Historical & Cultural Affairs, the Division of Fish & Wildlife, and the Delaware Nature Society, a state-wide, 6,000 member, non-profit organization whose mission is to improve our environment by connecting people to the natural world through education, advocacy, and conservation. DNS members receive reduced pricing for programs, free canoe rentals on Abbott’s Pond, and discounts at local retail affiliates. We are located just 4 miles from downtown Milford, DE, at 15411 Abbotts Pond Road, off Rt. 36. The Visitor Center is open year round Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, and during April – November on Saturday & Sunday as well, from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Trails are open for hiking, biking, and dog walking every day from dawn to dusk, including a 5K cross-country trail adjoined to Blair’s Pond.

We pulled into the center and one of the staff immediately told us where the best hiking and biking trails were. We ended up having time to do the trails around the mill and out into some of the woods. They were well marked and maintained. It was a lovely visit and the staff is extremely helpful! The interactive area was cool for my son. He got to "pet" a live turtle and I especially liked the trail on the little board walk! Very beautiful with all the fall colors.

Pizzadili Vineyard & Winery

Reviewed By sharpeibaby - Clayton, Delaware

We have been to the winery several times, and have always found the staff to be knowledgeable and very customer-focused. The winery and vineyard is very peaceful when they are not having one of their events. There are a few seating areas for you to enjoy a glass of wine on the premises. It is also a great place for weddings, car shows, fundraisers, etc. I rated that this is not suitable for young children or families only because of the winery aspect. When they are having events that are appropriate, it definitely would be suitable.

Killens Pond Water Park

Reviewed By Sparky1956 - Shelby Township, Michigan

Disappointed that our granddaughter that was
46"s couldn't go on the 15' high little slide. Besides wading and a few sprinkler spots not much for little ones to play on. That being said they enjoyed just playing in the pools. Lots of lifeguards keeping things under control. Could use a few more shady spots as the sun gets intense. Reasonably priced and they have some concessions too. I recommend the strawberry banana smoothie.
