In the northeastern most corner of Delaware, just about a mile from the Pennsylvania border, sits Hockessin, an area revered by nature lovers for its rural beauty and the many, large state parks that are there to enjoy. But nature is far from being all that’s plentiful in and around Hockessin….
In fact, from the Summit’s desirable location, it’s just minutes to signature, local dining and diverse recreation opportunities, not the least of which is Delaware Park, where family fun, as well as championship golf, horse racing and a Vegas-style casino await.
Head eastward from Hockessin and it’s only to 10 miles to Wilmington, brimming with arts and culture, as well as distinct traces of American history. The DuPont family legacy can be seen and celebrated here, including the opulent Nemours Mansion, which is open to the public and offers regularly scheduled tours.
You can also head a few minutes south and explore Newark, home of the University of Delaware and a wide range of entertainment choices, everything from high-level collegiate sports and live music to museums of art, history and more. The city is also home to an award-winning downtown area that’s rich in cultural offerings and offers more than 60 restaurants to satisfy every taste and craving.
