Greyhound Adventure-History & Hounds
A perfect addition to your Greyhounds Reach the Beach
® activities! Join us for a morning adventure designed for you and your canine pals! We’ll pick you up at the Sleep Inn on Coastal Highway in our comfortable, climate-controlled bus and head into Historic Lewes
for a driving tour of the 1st Town in the 1st State
. Hear the heroic, hopeful, harrowing – and sometimes just plain strange tales of how Zwaanendael (the original name) became Lewes and won the hearts of scores of visitors throughout the years.
Next we’ll head to Cape Henlopen State Park
to enjoy some time on one of Delaware’s most stunning beaches. Take a relaxing stroll, play a game of catch or just unwind as you take in the natural beauty of the coast. Cape Henlopen State Park is home to a myriad of wildlife, including a large variety of shorebirds as well as a number of endangered species. We’ll talk about the bay’s famous yearly visitor, the horseshoe crab – it’s vital importance to our modern well-being and the simple way that you can aid them on the beach.
After some beach time, we’ll take a short drive through the park to highlight its rich history and the essential role this strip of coastline played in our national defense – from the American Revolution through World War II and beyond. We’ll talk about our lighthouses – past and present – and some of our most famous shipwrecks that have happened just off the state park’s shores.
Finally, we’ll stop at the Crooked Hammock Brewery
– a dog-friendly haven for people hot to chill. The large enclosed “backyard” is fully equipped with picnic tables, games (think ping pong, ring toss, corn hole), and of course – hammocks! Enjoy lunch on your own, sample their house brewed beers (hey, you’re not driving!) or just kick back and delight in the day.
We’ll drop you back at the Sleep Inn
– a little fuller, a little more relaxed and a lot more knowledgeable about our fabulous Small Wonder State (yeah, we’re Delawareans – we love it here!).
