A Weekend in Wilmington

Wilmington, Delaware is the perfect size for a weekend getaway. Big enough to offer plenty of options; small enough to make driving, parking and paying easy.


Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada, is a charming town that sits about a half-hour drive north of Niagara Falls. I had never before heard of this place, but friends urged us to include it in our trip to Niagara Falls and it definitely became the highlight of the trip for me.
