If you are interested in birds and taking a walk or paddle in nature then don't miss Prime Hook. Bring your kayak and paddle in a very nice wildlife refuge enjoying eagles, ospreys, kingfishers, waterfowl, crabs and turtles. Fish jump right over your bow. This is a real gem.

When they first built this uber fun brewery and tasting room in sleepy Milton Delaware it was popular right away for craft beer aficionados. The Milton Brewery and tasting room has grown so much better it is a must stop if you are on DelMarVa peninsula. The tasting room is a hoot with uber friendly staff. The Dogfish shop is perfect for all the gear. The brewery tour is fascinating too if you are a hop head. We always stop in on our way into Rehoboth Beach and the new tasting room kitchen, sweet warm, sunny patio area makes for a perfect place to have a few flyers of delicious Dogfish craft beer. CHEERS ????????????

Lavender Fields Farm

Reviewed By mjshss2 - Seaford, United States

This lovely farm has rows and rows of lavender planted that bloom in June and are truly beautiful to see. The gift shop has many items made from lavender from the farm, as well as items made elsewhere but sold here. Great place to find a special gift or a gift for a hard to please person. I love their soaps and the Lavender Mist for linens and rooms. My husband loves the peppermint lotion for feet. I've given their lavender tea and mustard, along with soaps and lotions, to friends and relatives and everyone always raves about the gifts.

My husband and I enjoyed our first trip to the Meadery. Their meads are flavorful with varied types and enjoyable to drink. The bar is filled with interesting objects and is bright and inviting. The staff was welcoming and a pleasure to talk to.
