5 Unconventional Ways To Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Delaware
Tired of barhopping with friends or staying home in your pajamas to watch the ball drop on TV? There are many unique ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Wilmington, Delaware if you’re sick of the same-old, same-old. From kid-friendly early-hour celebrations to quieter moments of reflection with your significant other, Wilmington is the perfect setting. The abundance of holiday happenings is one of the aspects we here at Montchanin love most about our wonderful communities.
Let Your Heart Set Sail
The night air may chill your bones this time of year, but it’s balmy on the fully heated decks of The Starboard, departing from Dewey Beach at 7 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and returning at 1 a.m. For $35 per person, you receive live entertainment from DJ Smoky, a gourmet land and seafood hors d’oeuvres buffet, champagne, party favors, and a ticket for coat check. The following day, the ship “services hangovers” with their renowned Bloody Mary bar. This event sells out every year, so get your tickets soon.
Go Wild With The Kids
If you have kids, the idea of staying up until midnight may seem like more trouble than it’s worth. Instead, you can head to the Brandywine Zoo’s annual Noon Year’s Eve celebration at 10 a.m. to celebrate with zoo animals, games, crafts, and a sparkling cider toast at noon. Tickets are free for members and just $5 for non-members, so there’s no excuse to stay home.
Let the Good Times Roll
Book a private New Year’s Eve extravaganza from 9 pm to 12:30 a.m. at New Castle’s Bowlerama bowling alley. You’re allowed up to five people per lane for $50, plus $3.75 for shoe rental with unlimited glow bowling and a buffet included. Or you can book a kid-friendly family party from 5 to 8 pm for $69.95 per lane, which includes unlimited glow bowling with bumpers, music, shoe rental, hats, party favors, a large pizza, a pitcher of soda, and 10 KidZone tickets for every guest ages 10 and under. Reserve your lane by December 30th.
Kick Off 2019 With Football
If you and your significant other love football, enjoy a staycation at the Hilton in Wilmington/Christiana this New Year’s Eve. They’re offering a two-night stay for the price of one, which includes access to a Philadelphia vs. Washington football party projected onto a large screen in the ballroom, along with snacks and one complimentary beverage. On New Year’s Eve, you’ll be treated to four hours of open bar, a five-course dinner, a midnight balloon drop and champagne toast, a late night dessert buffet, and overnight accommodations.

Exploring new communities Wilmington DE has to offer can be a refreshing start to 2019. We invite you to escape the crowds and the chaos to dream quietly with a friendly tour guide.
