  • Delaware Art Museum
    Howard Pyle's unexpected death in 1912 brought a group of artists, entrepreneurs, and businessmen together to grieve their friend. They couldn't let the artist's passion for teaching and illustration disappear as quickly as he had; so, they decided to form the Wilmington Society of Fine Arts with the sole purpose of preserving his legacy. They gathered funds from locals who felt just as strongly as they did—family members, friends, students, fans—and purchased approximately 100 pieces of his artwork. Little did they know that, with these 100 pieces, they were starting something greater than a memorial for a good friend. The Wilmington Society of Fine Arts would, over time, add more and more artwork to its collection, growing into an 80,000-square-foot space and out of its original name. The Delaware Art Museum, as its called today, now counts more than 12,000 works of art as part of its collection. Permanent features showcase British pre-Raphaelites, the urban landscapes of John Sloan, modern American art, and, of course, Howard Pyle. The masterpieces don't stop when visitors venture outside—the Copeland Sculpture Garden adorns its lush natural scenery with nine works from the museum's permanent collection, along with a massive outdoor labyrinth.

  • Stratosphere Trampoline Park
    While you may not literally be able to jump into the stratosphere at Stratosphere Trampoline Park, with thousands of square feet of trampolines, you'll have plenty of room to try. Visitors of the first indoor trampoline park in Delaware can bound skyward in the trampoline arenas—that is, when they're not busy leaping over their opponents in games of trampoline dodgeball, riding the mechanical bull, or utilizing the speed wall. The fun center offers plenty to do during breaks from the action, too. Guests can stand in a hurricane simulator, where 78 mph winds let guests feel what its like to be stuck in the storm. Or, they can hit the arcade, and master the claw machine so thoroughly that it leaves its tank to scratch their backs. Stratosphere's newest attraction is the Ultimate Ninja Challenge, based off the popular TV show American Ninja Warrior. Ultimate Ninja Challenge is a timed obstacle course with multiple elements, including quad steps and warped walls. The course is sure to be a challenge for all ages, with participants as young as five having finished it. The course appeals to nearly all ages and skill levels.

  • AMF Price Lanes
    "You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, AMF was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in bowling, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public. Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature the latest technologies, from high-tech scoring systems to the ability to share experiences on social media. Bowlers can also refuel on a menu of American foods when they get hungry or the little heart-shaped meter above their heads begins blinking.

  • First State Lanes

Amateurs hurl spheroids at lanes alongside semi-pros doing battle in colorful league uniforms or impressive gladiator outfits. During rounds, the full-service snack bar slings pizzas, plates of signature chicken tenders, and a selection of beers. During the evenings, bouts of cosmic red-pin bowling cast pins in crimson and black-light glow, and any bowler who throws a strike that houses le pin rouge wins a dollar. For less alley-based diversions, guests can saunter over to the game room to play pool and arcade games.
