Wilmington is a beautiful waterside city located along the Delaware River, just across the border of Delaware and Pennsylvania near Philadelphia. The city is packed with restored 18th century homes, a blossoming arts community and a bustling business environment. Although the city has its roots in manufacturing, the city is known today as a "corporate capital" due to the several banks and financial institutions that thrive in the area.
According to a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, there are more than 71,000 residents in the Wilmington area, so it has a small city feel, but is still just a short drive from one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the country. Wilmington enjoys a cost of living that is near the U.S. average, according to City-Data, so families and residents can live here comfortably.
Activities and attractions in Wilmington
Wilmington may get overshadowed by its bigger Pennsylvania neighbor, but there are many art museums and fun riverside parks to enjoy. Perhaps the most popular of the former is the Delaware Art Museum, which houses a wonderful collection of 19th and 20th century American art.
There are also several beautiful Colonial and early American structures to marvel at in Wilmington, including the Old Swedes Church, which is one of the oldest houses of worship in the country. Other notable places to visit in Wilmington include Nemours Mansion and Gardens, the Hagley Museum and Library and the Grand Opera House, a small theater that boasts near-perfect acoustics and luxurious style.
If you are into sports, Frawley Stadium hosts the city's minor league baseball team, the Wilmington Blue Rocks, and is always a great place for baseball fans and families.
Wilmington was also known as "the last stop to freedom" on the Underground Railroad, and this special part of the city's history can be found at the Tubman-Garrett Riverfront, a park that honors Harriet Tubman and Thomas Garrett, two prominent conductors on the Underground Railroad.
