Scenery

On this quiet 2-lane road you'll run along the Delaware Bay coast, passing thru coastal estuaries (the wide mouth of a rivers into which the tide flows) and farmland. From start to stop, there are many side roads leading to the Del River to stop and take great pictures! It goes from farmlands, to wetlands!

Drive Enjoyment

2-lane secondary road, winding thru the country and along the Delaware shore.Road quality is good, but the road has very few area's with a shoulder, and a breakdown could put you in some danger from the many blind curves. The ride is a blast, however. From the Air Mobility museum located at the Dover End, to the view from the Reedy point Bridge as you approach Del city, you will find a lot of things to catch your eye, and enough turns and long straights to both challenge your cornering, and satisfy you need to open it up a bit. Be on the lookout for farm equipment, and deer!

Tourism Opportunities

Eat lunch (spring summer and fall) at Sambo's in Leipsic Delaware, be sure to stop for a beverage at the Augustine In (Augustine Beach). Route ends at the Delaware Memorial Bridge.When you get into Port Penn try Kelly's Crab house or Crabby Dicks in Delaware City.

Nice local ride. Watch some of the potholes near bridges. At the end you can visit Mikes Harley Davidson in New Castle.

It is a nice road to take because there are so few roads to take without the traffic. Del City has a few good restaurants.

Nice ride along the Delaware River. Watch out for high water in spots.
