Wilmington’s Vibrant Culture and Nightlife
Wilmington homes for sale
When enjoying the leafy serenity and old-fashioned neighborhood charm of Delaware’s master-planned community Darley Green, it is easy to forget that the bright lights—and abundant attractions—of Philadelphia and Wilmington, DE are only minutes away. But while Philadelphia is famous for its rich nightlife, culture, and entertainment scenes, Wilmington’s diverse offerings are rapidly putting it on the map.
Townhomes in Delaware: Take advantage of Wilmington’s cultural renaissance
Wilmington has long been a choice destination for romantic weekend getaways, tax-free girls shopping trips, or excursions to the annual Mid Atlantic Wine and Food festival. But the greater Wilmington area also offers plentiful attractions to year-round residents, who love to take advantage of its increasingly vibrant cultural and dining scenes.
Restaurants abound to suit every taste and budget, from the four star elegance of the Green Room at the Hotel DuPont to over 15 breweries and taverns serving classic pub food and local craft brews. At the historic Cantwell’s in nearby Odessa, you can even dine in a genuine early 19th century tavern!
Cultural attractions are many, from the 200-year-old DuPont Estate, with grand mansion and world-class gardens, to the 100-year old Delaware Art Museum, to historic colonial towns. Meanwhile, the dynamic and revitalized Wilmington Riverfront features top-rated dining and nightlife—diverse offerings stretch from the edgy Asian-fusion of Kooma to family-favorite Joe’s Crab Shack—a brand-new 15-screen multiplex, and annual events such as the Riverfront Blues Festival.
