We visited the State Capitol and Visitor's Center and found the trip very informative. We were here for a class project for my son. The young man that gave the tour was fantastic. He patiently answered my son's many questions and provided him with some great information for his state project. Very happy we decided to visit.

Plenty of handouts and maps of things to do in and near Delaware. A nice place to take a break if you have had a long drive.

The staff wasn't helpful, but there are lots of brochures and pamphlets that can help you out. Just google or use trip advisor. I hate to give bad reviews, but when going to a visitor center for information, I'm always hoping to get better information than I could get on my own.

First class rest stop located off Rt 1 in Smyrna, De. Excellent accomodations. If you need maps, a watering hole, or just a break, this is a good place to stop
