This is a really nice trip that we have is taken with friends several times. Route 9 is curvy and goes through some beautiful tidal areas. There are many small bridges overlooking inlets with people fishing on them Be careful going through the small towns as speed limits are strictly adhered to. If you look carefully you can see all kinds of birds around the water. Delaware City is a nice place to stop with a small ferry that takes you out to a fort on the island across the way and there is an ice cream shop in town. Further down on 9 (going south) there is a Tree Farm/Ice Cream shop with pumpkins in the fall. You can stop at Dover AFB as there is an Air Museum there. We have not stopped there yet but plan on doing so soon. They do have a website with all the information on it.We usually go a bit further down then I showed on the map to Rehoboth Beach. We stop in the arcades and have some lunch or ice cream there. The ferry ride is about 90 minutes and is about 40.00. You can go inside and relax. It is a nice ride and we have seen dolphins swimming out there. They always load the bikes first. Cape May is very nice with lots of Victorian houses. We went up to the Wildwood Border and stopped at a tavern and had a good meal there. The route back to Delaware cuts out a lot of traffic. If you do this on a Sunday however you will hit some traffic for about 10 miles with people returning from the shore and trying to get to the main roads. Please note that map shows us ending at Pennsville,NJ but we actually take the Delaware Memorial Bridge back home.
