WINNER WONDERLAND
Win Big When You Book on TripAdvisor
With NASCAR at the Speedway, harness racing at Dover Downs, ten nationally recognised museums, plus historical attractions galore, it's easy to see why the capital of Delaware is a great weekend destination. Visit the world's largest cargo plane, stationed at Dover Air Force Base, or explore the beginnings of recorded sound at the Johnson Victrola Museum. It's the perfect time to visit the Biggs Museum of Art, which is running a special exhibition to celebrate its 10th anniversary. "Artful Living: the Legacy of Sewell C. Biggs" features fine and decorative art gems from the private collection of the local patron and museum namesake. Also worth a visit: the Delaware Agricultural Museum and the John Dickinson Plantation, where staff, dressed in period costume, explain and reenact life in the late 18th and 19th centuries. Round out the day with a meander around Green and Loockerman Streets downtown. Lined with historic Colonial and Victorian buildings, plus speciality book, candle and jewellery shops, it's a great place to shop or sample the local fare at a neighbourhood cafe or restaurant.
