Undoubtedly, there are many Delaware romantic getaways, perfectly catering for honeymooners. The Quiet Resorts are a seven-mile stretch of sandy Atlantic Ocean beaches in the southeastern corner of Delaware, including the famous Bethany Beach, South Bethany and Fenwick Island. The resort area of the Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach is located on the Atlantic Coast only two hours from Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia. There is a choice of accommodations, ideally comforted for Delaware honeymoons and including fine hotels, condominiums, apartments, cottages, homes and retreat houses at Delaware resort areas.
Delaware honeymoons at one of the resorts splash the couples with an abundant choice of activities, such as swimming, water skiing, boating, jet skis, fishing, crabbing, sailing and windsurfing. If you have never experienced windsurfing, it is high time to do it in Delaware; the experience will add much to the adventurous spirit of your honeymoon. Summer seasons are full of events, containing regular concerts, performances and numerous festivals. At night every couple can find something to do with numerous restaurants and shops, or simply walking around a mile-long boardwalk along the beach is an excellent option for romantic couples.
Probably, the best and internationally renowned property, catering many of Delaware honeymoons, is the Hotel du Pont with its breathtaking mansions and romantic gardens. The Hotel du Pont, located in the center of historic downtown Wilmington, is only minutes from the spectacular Brandywine Valley. The eighty seven year-old Hotel du Pont is breathing a history of the European artisanship. Oak and mahogany paneling, original artwork and chandeliers impress a visitor at once. The rooms are equipped with excellent beds, goose-down pillows, a leather-inlaid desk, a safe, a TV, two phone lines and voice mail. The overnight deals, designed for Delaware honeymoons, include a Bridal Package and Romance Package. The Hotel du Pont is a member of the Historic Hotels of America and a winner of the Mobil Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond awards and the owner of the prestigious Gold Key Award for "Best Guest Room Design in the World." Their philosophy of a luxury and exclusive quality is maintained through each detail of either service or accommodation.
However, there is one more place in Delaware, which is even called "a lover's paradise" by honeymoons guides. This is the Inn at Montchanin, settled six miles away from Wilmington on six acres of land, featuring the most comfortable, spacious, romantic and sexiest suites for Delaware honeymoons. Being originally, a village, the Inn at Montchanin, has been recently reconstructed by a descendent of the du Ponts, and today it provides thirty three guest rooms and suites in several freestanding structures, where no room is identical. A large marble bathroom with a huge tub for two is only one peculiar detail of the inn, designed to welcome loving couples.
Visiting Wilmington and the surrounding Brandywine River Valley, you will find numerous and famous Delaware attractions, museums and historical sites nearby. Do not miss out Winterthur, the country's leading museum of American decorative arts, the Longwood Gardens with crucial sightseeing within its area, the Hagly Museum (it will be interesting to know about the du Pont family and its fortune at least for the reason you stay in their property) and the Delaware Art Museum.
