Bear is a great place to stay in Wilmington as some of the city’s star attractions are within easy reach. Two attractions that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Amstel House and the ever-popular Old Library Museum. If time permits, be sure to also visit the Old Court House and the Delaware Park Racetrack and Slots.
Sights such as the George Read II House in New Castle are well worth visiting during your time in the Bear area,. If you’re a history buff, the area’s past has been beautifully preserved at the Fort Delaware State Park in Delaware City.
Sports fanatics visiting Bear should get tickets for nearby Daniel S. Frawley Stadium to see the Wilmington Blue Rocks doing battle with visiting teams. On game days follow the river of blue and grey, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fellow sports lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a few post-game beers.
When it’s time to put your feet up after a long day exploring the delights of Bear, check in to one of the area's many bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. For a good night’s sleep check out the Ramada Newark/Wilmington, the Red Roof PLUS+ Wilmington - Newark, and the popular Red Roof Inn & Suites Newark - University.
