Planning a fall beach weekend? Come a little early or stay a little longer to take advantage of midweek tours, presentations, and museum hours! Find a full itinerary of fun things to do in Western Sussex County.
Western Sussex County with the pristine Nanticoke River serving as its centerpiece is a hidden gem just a few minutes outside of the mayhem of the Delaware beaches.
When you plan your next vacation to the Delaware coast, consider getting away from the craziness of the beach and relax along the river for a few days instead. Our clean Nanticoke River offers outdoor adventurists an array of activities, from boating, fishing, canoeing and kayaking to walks or biking along the many trails.
There are also many interesting heritage stories and attractions to visit throughout our area, including ones about the sinister Patty Cannon and the civil rights pioneer Harriet Tubman. Don't forget to pack a few extra dollars to shop in one of many retailers. We have everything from local chocolates to antiques. The best part? It’s ALL TAX FREE!
Isn't it time you planned a visit?
There's no better time to highlight all the history you can experience in southern Delaware than during the time between early September and early October. Most of the tourists have gone home leaving Sussex County quiet, but there’s still have plenty of warm weather left. Making September and October the perfect time to come visit southern Delaware and experience our beautiful Nanticoke River, breathtaking coastal beaches, and fascinating history!
To make things easier, we've collected all of our history events and tours for the month (almost 100), plus all of the attractions and exhibits in the area (26 museums), in one place to make it easy to plan your See You in September adventures.
Also, have an interest in antiques?
Because an interest in history and an interest in antiques often go hand-in-hand, we are highlighting our Western Sussex Antique Trail during our See You In September event as well. Discover these itineraries here. Be sure to check out all of the special events scheduled by our Western Sussex County antique partners that will take place during the month too! And don't forget, antique shopping is Tax Free!
