These small communities between Philadelphia and Baltimore occupy a place on the east coast steeped in interesting history. A location near Chesapeake Bay’s north end led to a pivotal role in colonial history when the English Navy landed with thousands of troops under George Washington’s watchful eye. Proximity to several neighboring states, including New York, together with lenient marriage laws gave our area a reputation as the elopement capital where celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Willie Mays tied the knot. Today, it’s better known for the University of Delaware’s campus and many nearby businesses including IBM, Siemens, JPMorgan Chase and Raytheon. Hotel guests will find shopping nearby with a movie theatre at Peoples Plaza. Wilmington is a 30-minute drive and Dover is an hour south.
