Day 1

This morning begins with a visit to the Hagley Museum. It is here that the DuPont family first settled in America, built their first home, and began the black powder manufacturing business that became the foundation for all the other DuPont enterprises in the world. Today, Hagley is comprised of picturesque acres of wooded rolling hills along the Brandywine River. Our tour will show you what makes Hagley unique - the black powder yards, the historic machinery, and the original home of the DuPont family in America. You will see demonstrations, see the iron roll mills, witness a black powder explosion, visit the home and learn about how the family lived, worked and played at Hagley. From there we will travel a short distance to the Wilmington & Western Railroad for an afternoon round-trip ride up the Red Clay Valley. Our lodging for this evening will be at Dover Downs Casino Resort, where you are free to enjoy dinner and a leisurely evening. When you stay at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino you can enjoy world-class hotel and property amenities that include a legendary race track and a wide assortment of gaming and entertainment options. Our stay here includes $15 Food Credit and $50 in slot play.

Day 2

A buffet breakfast and some leisure time are included at the resort this morning. Our day then brings us to Dover International Speedway for a behind-the-scenes track tour at the "Monster Mile". With its 24-degree turns, slick concrete surface and intimidating reputation, Dover Speedway has more than earned its nick name of the "Monster Mile"! Get an up-close view of the track and pit road, visit the infield Media Center, the Monster Bridge, the Nascar Cup Series garage and The Monster Monument in Victory Plaza. After lunch on your own, we will travel south along the coastline to Lewes, Delaware, where you will have a better view of the uniqueness of the southern Delaware waterways as you enjoy a Delaware Coastline Cruise. Knowledgeable captains and crew members will take us out on the water in comfort and style. Experience the panoramic views of the shorelines, the wonderfully lush landscape of the grassy marshlands, local water life and birdlife, and the rich history of what was once a major shipping canal for transporting crops and commodities up and down the rivers to major ports such as Philadelphia and Wilmington. Imagine seeing all that with no traffic, no lines, and no crowds of people to dodge! After our cruise, we depart for home. With a rest stop en route, arrival home is scheduled for later this evening.
