    Join us for the second Maryland to Delaware Tour! Come enjoy a cruise through the Northeast Maryland and the Delaware Red Clay Valley with Stops at the Millburn Orchards and the Nemours Estate!

    Starting from the Fresh Market in Towson at 7:30am, right off 695, we will head north east into the countryside until we hit the Susquehanna River,crossing at the Conowingo Dam. From there we head east to Milburn Orchards, a good place to take a break and pick up fruit, pies, ice cream or other sweet treats.

    After that short stop we will push through the Red Clay Valley, enjoying the riverside scenery, until we reach our second stop at the Nemours Estate, a former DuPont Estate built in a French Chateau Style with a Large Garage filled with cars, Gardens and a Great Gatsby Style Backstory to boot. Expect to arrive around 10:30-10:45. The Tour is self guided so feel free to split up or walk around as a group.

    At 1:30 we will regroup at the visitor center to make a quick drive over to The Charcoal Pit for lunch, a local favorite, A Diner in operation since the 1950s with tasty burgers!

    The Cost for Nemours will be $15/ per person instead of $17, if 15 or more of us show up, so encourage your friends to come along too! Kids are welcome and have lower priced tickets.

    If you have any suggestions on how to improve this year's Tour feel free to comment below.

    We did too many stops so I cut down this year to make the tour more fun and easier for people to head home earlier.

    Can we get some updates/routing on this tour? It has been awfully silent.

    Sorry for the delay. I sent out the email Blaster last night with the route and updates.

    Overall the route is good to go and will follow a similar route to last year. One of the first roads we will encounter Cromwell Bridge Rd (This is corrected relative to the email blaster) was closed due to the weather when I tested the route Sunday. It appears to be reopened, but if not I will send out a new set of directions to reflect this early on Friday so everyone will have time to print it out or I will make a supplement direction for the first few miles.

    The weather looks like it will be alright for the drive itself! Though I would advise bringing some rain gear as it may be a little wet going to and from cars once we arrive in Delaware.

    See everyone bright and early at 7am on Saturday!
