FORT DELAWARE:

 

TIME ON YOUR HANDS IN FORT DELAWARE

Fort Delaware was built in 1859 to protect Philadelphia and Wilmington during the Civil War.  A fun experience is taking the half-mile ferry from Delaware City to Pea Patch Island where you’ll experience a day of living history.  You’ll assist the blacksmith forge parts for a cannon and observe a cannon firing. 

 

 

Bird watchers are attracted to the area during the spring months to view one of the East Coast’s largest heron rookeries.  Prime Hook and Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuges are a worthwhile visit.
