Guided Tours of the Hugh R. Sharp Campus of the University of Delaware: The University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment offers free guided tours of the Hugh R. Sharp campus in Lewes, Del., to introduce the public to marine science and the research activities of the college. Click here for information.  

Tourist At Home: Visiting or living in a new place for the first time? One of the best ways to get to know an area is to get lost and just drive! Of course, if you don't *really* want to get lost, we understand. That's why Southern Delaware Tourism has partnered with The Cape Gazette and some wonderful local tour guides to provide armchair tours of Sussex County each month that you can enjoy first in the comfort of your home or hotel room, and then can get out and explore in real life too!
