For the fans of Bob Marley, this is where he worked on an assembly line at the Chrysler Newark Assembly plant in the 1960s. Founded in 1694 by Welsh and Scots-Irish settlers, it wasn't officially a town until 1758. Located 19 km from the town of Wilmington, Newark is in the New Castle County of Delaware. Amongst the first graduates from the Newark Academy established in 1765 were 3 of the men that signed the Declaration of Independence: George Read, James Smith and Thomas McKean. It was the scene of the Battle of Cooch's Bridge during the American Revolutionary War and apparently the first time the flag of the "Stars and Stripes" were displayed. So there are plenty of historical whiffs floating around the town. From a paper mill, The Curtis Paper Mill, the oldest in the country in 1798 to a church built by the Methodists in 1812 there is plenty for the historian to have a gawk at.
Originally wrapped in farmland, the town is now a Legoland of housing developments and public parkland. Hire or grab someone's bike and take to the trails at White Clay State Park where you will find over 3,300 acres of forest to bash over or trek in your walking boots. You can even go fishing in the creek or hang out on a picnic rug gorging on some local fresh produce. For those with guns, certain areas of the park are open to whitetail deer hunting, if you have murderous intentions of the animal variety. If you love jumping around and letting the inner-child out occasionally, go to the Launch Trampoline Park to have a game of dodge ball.
Stretch the legs and take a walk down the Main Street to check out the various restaurants, cafes and the shopping available. Grab an espresso and watch the passing parade of locals and university students that haunt the area, as this road cuts through the University of Delaware, so it is a bit of a hangout area for them. If you like getting your rear end wet, head to the Ice Arena at the University where many foreign Olympians actually train. You may get some points on how to stay on your feet or get to watch an ice hockey game.
