Wilmington is a small city. It will never grow bigger as it is surrounded by water- Rivers, marshes, and creeks. Check your credit card mailing address. Perhaps you send your bills to Wilmington? It seems that all the skyscapers have banking names. And DuPont is everywhere...

We used to do all our shopping in Wilmington when I was a small girl. Then the city seemed to fall into disrepair. The suburbs sprouted fancy new malls giving us even more reason to shop elsewhere. Recently, Wilmington has been giving herself a facelift. The biggest draw being the Riverfront. The Riverfront is a growing complex of outlet shops, restaurants, pubs, clubs, and beautiful walkways along the river to connect them all.

    There is so much history around here. I was researching Brandywine and Nemours and looked for thing around there. Thank you for the tips.

    Great tips -- especially the food and beer ones! Next time in Wilmington, I will try to find The Dog House. Best regards from Central NJ, Bill
