Hello, my loves! Here I am back with another travel/location post! I’ve lived in Delaware for almost all my life, and I’ve never really done a travel post on it until now, so here are five places to check out in Delaware!

Although technically located in Pennsylvania, Longwood Gardens is technically close enough to Delaware to offset that fact. Longwood Gardens is a very beautiful botanical garden. The duPont family owned it years before it was open to the public. They have seasonal plants and flowers every year. I get almost all my floral photography from Longwood Gardens.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Delaware post without a beach post, and the most well-known beach is Rehoboth Beach, located right near the Atlantic Ocean. They are very LGBTQ+ friendly and have an assortment of restaurants, and there is a ferry that can take people to neighboring Cape May on the New Jersey shore.
My start in the customer service field! This museum contains the history of the gunpowder industry in Delaware and is very beautiful nature-wise. You can also explore the residence of E.I. DuPont and the gardens as well.
The Riverfront in Wilmington spans the Christina River and contains a trail, but also several attractions and restaurants as well.
Mount Cuba is essentially a nature center that has a ton of native plants. It also has a small pond that contains several turtles and fish. Mount Cuba is located in a very woodsy area of Delaware.
The Historic Odessa Foundation is a tour around the small town of Odessa. Located in what we call the “slower lower” part of New Castle County, the Historic Odessa Foundation takes you through several 18th-century houses. The tour guides explain the history of each house as well, so it’s very educational.
