www.brandywinezoo.org
COST:  Check website for prices
HOURS:  Daily 10a - 4p
This zoo is home to about 150 animals, scattered throughout 13 acres.  It is small and easy to navigate.  The animals and facilities all seem to be well taken care of. 
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-   Because the zoo is small, it is easier for young children to walk it.  The price is very reasonable.  There is a great variety of animals to see;  the kids each found their favorite!

WILMINGTON-  WILMINGTON AND WESTERN RAILROAD
2201 Newport-Gap Pike (Rte 41 North), Wilmington    302.998.1930

COST:  Check website for pricing
HOURS:  Call for hours as the schedule varies
Take a 90 minute round-trip ride through the amazingly scenic country side from Wilmington to Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove.  There is a half hour delay for picnics or nature walks.  Well worth the price!   There is also a longer trip available for a slightly higher charge but that one might be too long for younger children.  The shorter trip seemed to just about perfect for young children.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-  The children loved the train ride.  It was nice to have the break in the middle of the ride to allow them to run around.    Reasonably priced so it is great for even a large family.

 

Family Friendly Travel Tip:
Older children can use time in the car or airplane to learn a new craft.  There are some great books about learning to knit, crochet and cross-stitch.  Your child will be occupied and have a sense of accomplishment when they have completed a project by the end of the journey.
