Great tours come in pieces: keepsakes, souvenirs, sensations and experiences. These pieces range from the feeling of a fresh peach in one’s hand, to a cold sip of craft beer, to cobblestone streets underfoot.
In Kent County, Delaware, these small pieces build on each other to create something unique and completely unforgettable. Groups are sure to leave with an incredible story.
“Not only can groups take advantage of the free museums and tours in the area, we also feature unique events throughout the year; from fall festivals to Dover Days to two NASCAR races hosted in the state’s capital,” said John Doerfler, sales and events manager for Kent County Tourism. “Our office will help book your tours, stays and events to take advantage of.”
