A trip down Delaware Route 9 is a unique experience. As the old state road twists and turns, winding its way down part of the Delaware coast, from old New Castle to the Dover Airbase, curious types encounter attention grabbing views, attractive old homes, and distinctive fishing villages. All along the 50-some miles the First State’s cultural and natural history is still present.
The decades have seen progress along this two lane road, and although time marches on this special Delaware place still reflects a distinctive life style that speaks to earlier times. The changes haven’t overpowered the natural vistas or the historical sense one gets along the way.
We have enjoyed traveling this path for over 40 years as it remains a fascinating trip back in time.
One of those charming little villages is Leipsic, a small fishing village with a working waterfront. Here are some photos of the community and we’ll share more Route 9 views in upcoming posts.
