Nemours Mansion and Gardens, Wilmington

Water fountain in a pond

Tour the Nemours Mansion and Garden, modeled after the late-18th-century French style and built for Alfred I. duPont's first wife Alicia. The 3,000-acre plot is full of sculptures by Prosper Lecourtier (1855-1924) and is lined with plants like Japanese cryptomeria, pink flowering horse chestnuts, and pine oaks, all eventually leading to a large reflecting pool. The pool has 157 jets that shoot water 12 feet into the air and is surrounded by Art Nouveau-style, classical mythology-based "Four Seasons sculptures" by American sculptor Henri Crenier (1873-1948).

The tour involves climbing staircases. However, much of the tour is wheelchair accessible, including the gardens. For special assistance you are encouraged to call the reservation office before visiting, so they can be prepared to meet your needs.

Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, Rehoboth Beach

A lighthouse at the beach

Voted by Family Vacation Critic as one of the top 10 best beaches for families--this is the beach to hit for family fun and wheelchair accessibility. You'll find abundant attractions along the boardwalk, like multiple ice cream shops, spas, upscale eateries and pizza joints, and live entertainment at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand and Clear Space Theatre Company. Beyond the sand you'll find tax-free shopping, charming boutiques, and nightlife hot spots. The Tanger Outlets, which are known as the "mile of style," are also close by.

Ramps to the beach are available at Maryland Avenue, Philadelphia Street, and the Boardwalk and Surf Avenue.

Make a day of it or a weekend trip, and stop by some of the delicious restaurants along the way! You can find a list of the wineries and breweries here and a list of dining options here.

Each location is wheelchair accessible. However, some of the tours might not be. If you are interested in the tours, you can contact the locations beforehand to inquire about accessibility.

Air Mobility Command Museum, Dover

The museum was a 4146 Base Unit during WWII, and the Dover Army Airfield used the facility for secret rocket development. These secret operations took place in Hangar 1301. During the 1990s the hangar was restored and given a new life as the Air Mobility Command Museum and is part of the National Museum of the US Air Force's field museum system. The Museum is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You'll see many aircrafts, WWII-related artifacts, a refueling exhibit, and other intriguing exhibits!

The main floor of the display hangar, museum store, and restrooms are wheelchair accessible. The C-141B aircraft has a ramp for wheelchair access.
