    Nemours Estate and Grounds will not disappoint. The interior tour allows visitors to see most living areas, as well as view the kitchen/staff dining quarters and the recreation areas in the basement, along with the mechanical rooms. The docents were enthusiastic about the home and sharing their knowledge of the Dupont Family. Home was beautiful and the grounds were spectacular. I've been the Hearst Castle, Newport. Lenox.... and this estate certainly rivals those.

    This place was fascinating and on beautiful grounds. I highly recommend the trip.

    One could just go to walk along the beautiful Brandywine Creek among old stone industrial buildings and enjoy the day. However, the history, demonstrations and tour guides make this place a real gem. The personal attention and explanations from the guides was marvelous.
    The Powder Mill, Machine Shop and Steam Engine Demos were interesting and definitely worth scheduling into your visit.
    The "Science Saturday" exhibits were a nice engaging bonus for my 8 & 10 year olds.

    Wasn’t sure what to expect, this tour is legit. The tour started with an introduction about different devices that we would use during the tour. Everyone was offered something to use to track paranormal energy in the house. Got lots of responses to multiple questions. Our guides were great. Would recommend this tour.

    Lovely walking trails, waterfalls, flowers, places to picnic. It’s also a beautiful place to drive through.

    If Liquid Alchemy conjures up visions of Merlin and magic potions it wouldn’t be that far off. “Doc” and Terri have brought a unique experience to Wilmington. Is it a Cider-house or a Meadery? It’s a little of both. They concoct pure magic in a bottle or growler. Take a a few hours to explore their local ciders and meads. Add some unique local snacks or food trucks and you have a wonderful afternoon to share this experience with yourself or friends. Wether you are local to Wilmington or visiting the area this is an experience worth it.
    Take the leap to explore their different and unique flavors. Ciders from dry to apple pie, pineapple, dragon fruit experience the fine craftsmanship. Meads that throw out the sweet English styles to move to spicy Thai chili, aged red wine, or locally sourced honey this is your place. Hope you take that turn off the normal path and find a fun tasteful experience.
