The winter season, especially throughout the greater area of Dover, Delaware can be a magical time of year with plenty of fun and festive activities to enjoy. From skiing and ice skating to holiday markets and light displays, there’s something for everyone to enjoy, and our team at Wilkinson Homes has put together a few of our favorites to add to your calendar. 

Take a spin around the ice rink

The Skating Club of Wilmington is another great spot to frequent during the winter season. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced skater, you’ll always enjoy a day or evening spent at this spacious rink. The club also hosts a variety of skating events and competitions, making it a great place for the whole family to enjoy. 

Hit the snowy slopes

If you’re a ski or snowboarding enthusiast, you’ll definitely want to hit the slopes at Elk Mountain Ski Resort. Located just a little over an hour from Dover, and with 26 trails and a variety of terrain to explore, there’s something for everyone at this picturesque resort. After a day on the slopes, warm up with a cup of hot cocoa in the lodge or grab a bite to eat at the on-site restaurant. 

Get in some holiday retail therapy

The Dover Mall is a popular destination year-round, but it’s especially festive during the winter months. With over 130 stores, the mall has something for everyone. You can find the perfect gift for the holiday season, or just treat yourself to something special. The mall also has a variety of dining options, so you can take a break whenever you want and warm up with a hot cup of cocoa. 

Plan a day for the adults 

Delaware is home to a number of bars, breweries and craft beer makers to visit for a drink or two, and at times, many of them also offer tours of their facilities. The Fordham & Dominion Brewing Company in Dover is a popular spot for tours, where you can learn about the brewing process and taste some of the brewery’s best brews. End your night at The Golden Fleece Tavern or Irish Mike’s Olde Towne Pub for a fun evening with all of your friends. If you’re feeling lucky, you could also always head to the Bally’s Dover Casino, where you can try your hand at a variety of games, including slot machines and table games. 

Enjoy a night of entertainment

Finally, there’s never a bad time to go see a performance or play, but there is something especially charming about dressing up in the wintertime and heading out for an evening of entertainment. The Schwartz Center for the Arts is Dover’s premier performing arts venue, and it offers a variety of shows throughout the year for you to enjoy, including concerts, plays and dance performances.
