Wilmington's Riverfront has been growing by leaps and bounds and there is lots to do in the area. There are outlet shops, riverfront markets and lots more things to see along the beautiful river walk including some of the old cranes still standing proudly there and painted in bright colors. There is also a beautiful minor league baseball stadium that features the Wilmington Blue Rocks and there's not a bad seat in the house. There's much more development going on and it seems to be turning into a "mini Baltimore Inner Harbor". The inviting Tubman-Garrett Park hosts many fun summer events including the Riverfront Blues Festival. If you like Jazz, come to the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival in Rodney Square every summer. It's a great time and it's free to the public! There are many more musical events at Wilmington's Grand Opera House with a variety of musical events including Opera Delaware, of course and many other national and world renown musicians! There are lots of ethnic festivals throughout the summer and fall including St. Anthony's Italian Festival, The Greek Festival, Haneef's African Festival and the Polish Festival.
Other points of interest include the Brandywine Zoo and Park, the Kalmar Nyckel tall ship, Delaware Art Museum and Delaware Historical Society and lots more! Many people commute to work here from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. It's easy to get in and out of and rush hour isn't bad in comparison to many metro areas. Wilmington, Delaware is a thriving city and great place to be.
