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.

Great ride on RT 9. A little of everything from beginning to end for any level of driver. Mostly enjoyed because there was little traffic for most of the ride. Only negative was the tide was up and I had to run the bike through water that had crossed over the road. Not sure what was in the water but it was heck to clean the rims later because of a residue that was difficult to remove. Overall, highly recommended.
