Some amazing historical sites draw visitors into the state. Being the oldest state, there are plenty of these to choose from. The Fort Delaware State Park is a Civil War era fortress that housed thousands of prisoners during the war. Daily reenactments with actors in period clothing highlight the activities at the fortress these days.
In Dover the elegant Ballet Theater performs and thrills audiences. They especially put on a show during the Christmas season when an amazing take on the Nutcracker is staged. For some outdoor splendor, Winkler Farms in Harrington offers fresh fruit and vegetables during the spring and summer. When the air turns crisp and the leaves begin to fall, a visit to Winkler Farms is a must. Find the perfect pumpkin, sip on some hot or cold cider and get lost in the ever winding corn maze.
