What To Do

To enjoy a healthy dose of holiday cheer, head to Hagley Museum and Library. The home of DuPont Company founder, E.I. du Pont, is decorated with lights and will really “light” up your social media feed. Enjoy a guided tour here, and if you’ll be working at the company, it’s a great way to learn more about its beginnings.

Nature meets the holidays at Longwood Gardens. From November 27th until January 11th, more than 400,000 decorative LED lights will complement the poinsettias, Christmas trees and flowers. Bundle up before you head out – Wilmington is scheduled for a pretty cold winter this year.

If you visit both of those places and could still use more holiday festivities in your life, check out this list of other events taking place in and around Wilmington throughout the winter.

Feeling At Home

When you want to feel more at home on the road, network! If you have friends or colleagues in Wilmington or nearby Philadelphia, get in touch with them over the holiday season. Seeing a familiar face will almost always make you feel better. Plus, you’ll be maintaining your valuable network of associates.

Additionally, don’t be afraid to go out alone. Consider going to Theater N to catch a film or to the Grand Opera House for a holiday performance of The Nutcracker. You’re sure to soak up holiday cheer in no time.
