Wilmington Riverfront in the Evening
At night, the Wilmington Riverfront pops with activity, from the crack of the bat at Wilmington Blue Rocks games inside Frawley Stadium to standing ovations at the Delaware Theatre Company. And when it’s time to eat, everything is within an easy walk – local brewpubs, kid-friendly quick bites, food trucks, farm-to-table restaurants, cocktail bars, hip nightspots, and some of the best outdoor decks in all of Delaware.
Stroll along the Christina River on the scenic 1.3-mile Wilmington Riverfront, and you’ll pass something for every mood and every taste. It is a success story in transforming an industrial wasteland into a thriving destination rich in history and filled with recreational, cultural, retail and culinary attractions.
