Originally built to protect the ports of Wilmington and Philadelphia near the conclusion of the War of 1812 and later used as a prisoner-of-war camp, the fort is accessible only by ferry from Delaware City. Once there, visitors can join in living history demos: help a blacksmith hammer new parts for a cannon, work with a laundress, watch a gunpowder charge and meet costumed interpreters.
FAMILY MUSTS: Home to one of the largest heronries on the East Coast, the park lets families get a closer look at the birds with an observation platform. While there, kids can pick up the “nature nook” scavenger hunt about animal life on Pea Patch Island.
