100 Things to Do in Delaware Before You Die

100 Things to Do in Delaware Before You Die


There’s no place quite like Delaware. Where else can you drive the length of the state in three hours, bump into a US Senator at the grocery store, and see the preserved hull of a 1798 shipwreck—all in the same day? It may be one of the smallest states in the Union, but Delaware has countless hidden gems to offer visitors and residents alike. 100 Things to Do in Delaware Before You Die (for sale on 10/01/20) is your handbook to discovering these diamonds in the Diamond State, from the warm ocean beaches to bucolic farm country, complete with family-friendly listings and must-do itineraries.

Join us for a live, interactive discussion with Delaware experts Rachel Kipp and Dan Shortridge, who will escort you around the First State’s best-kept secrets. From horseshoe crabs to Colonial architecture, their detailed inside scoops will fascinate visitors and locals alike.

Rachel Kipp and Dan Shortridge are a husband and wife writing team with nearly four decades of combined experience in journalism and public relations. They have lived in Delaware for a total of 40 years, living or working in all three counties. As reporters for Delaware's largest newspaper, they covered the state from top to bottom, writing about education, the arts, politics, government, business and more. They have also worked in communications, marketing, and content leadership for universities, state agencies, and local schools in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Rachel and Dan live in central Delaware with their three children, and are always on the hunt for new things to do and places to go. Follow them at @100thingsinde on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, or 100thingsinde.com. Rachel and Dan will be interviewed by Scott Thomas from Southern Delaware Tourism.

We invite you to support the authors by purchasing a copy of her books from one of our local independent bookstores, Browseabout Books and biblion. For store hours and book availability, please visit the websites.
