Kudos to Wilmington for developing the waterfront this way. Wonderful landscaping--really--and plenty of restaurants to tickle your fancy. Maybe they could use some other shops, too. We have nothing at all like this in New Jersey!

The Hotel Dupont suggested we go down for dinner and we walked the length and found a great movie complex at the end and have a great time. Would strongly suggest you check it out.

Sadly we chose to stay at Westin Wilmington so we could use the riverwalk. It is a mess and the parking lot for the Westin was under construction too. I recommend staying away from this area at this time - July 2019;

Not sure what’s so great about this place. Was expecting a Harbor place like Baltimore or Norfolk, VA. Not much here. Not very pretty. There is a children’s museum and mini golf that we did not go to. There are some good restaurants though.

I don’t believe so. It’s downtown/city not rural country trails.
