Summer brings bikini-clad throngs to the seaside towns like Rehoboth and Dewey Beach on the Deleware shore, busy watering holes, boardwalk attractions and bronzen bodies the bar by which the day's activities are set.
Framed by grassy lawn and lofty, leaf-frocked trees, the elegant former home of Henry Francis du Pont, an American horticulturist with a penchant for collecting antiques, paints a grand picture. Designed in the style of a European estate, the house and carefully tended gardens offer a genteel glimpse of both the du Pont famiy and Henry F du Pont's expansive antique collection. Explore the house further on a guided tour and get an up-close look at antique furniture in "Period Rooms" and assorted objects in the museum galleries, which showcase a selection of the over 85,000 items that are part of Winterthur's permanent holdings. Let the young members of your party frolick a bit in the Enchanted Woods, a three-acre children's garden that is part of Winterthur Garden, before calling it a day in the country.
