10 Best Rainy Day Activities in Delaware!

We’ve all had days when we woke up ready for an adventure or to do something fun, and then discovered that the weather was less than accommodating. Don’t let some rain ruin your day. From the slot machines at Bally’s Dover Casino Resort to the stratosphere exhibit at the Delaware Children’s Museum, check out these 10 best rainy day activities in Delaware.

The Delaware Contemporary, Wilmington, DE

When was the last time you spent an afternoon browsing an art museum? If you haven’t been to The Delaware Contemporary, it’s a must-visit for anyone who enjoys contemporary artwork.

Bally’s Dover Casino Resort, Dover, DE

Casinos are designed to practically be their own cities with everything you need in one building, so it’s the perfect place to stay dry. Enjoy the casino, live entertainment, restaurants, and more inside Bally’s Dover Casino Resort.

Axxiom Escape Rooms, Newark, DE

Escape the weather by ducking into Axxiom Escape Rooms. This fun escape room facility in Newark puts you and your friends or family members to the test with an intricate series of puzzles that work together to help you escape a themed locked room.

Shell We Bounce, Lewes, DE

A trampoline park is a fantastic way for kids (and kids at heart) to get out some of their rainy day energy and get some exercise while also having a great time. Head to the popular Shell We Bounce in Lewes to see for yourself.

The Indoor Academy, Georgetown, DE

Sports at the Beach is one of Georgetown’s premier outdoor sporting facilities, but you can still enjoy it on a rainy day with The Indoor Academy, the facility’s on-site indoor batting cages. Check it out to get some practice in or just have a good time.

Mid County Lanes, Middletown, DE

For people of all ages, from families to friend groups, Mid County Lanes is always a fun place to spend a rainy day. Enjoy the bowling lanes as well as the Family Fun Galaxy entertainment arcade.

Shore Family Fun Center, Bethany Beach, DE

The Bethany Beach area is known for its oceanside recreation, but there’s no shortage of things to do on rainy days either. Head to the Shore Family Fun Center for games, snacks, and more.

Painted Stave Distilling, Smyrna, DE

Ever tried cocktails made with hyperlocal spirits (as in, spirits that were distilled literally feet away from where they’re being served)? The next time the weather is soggy, head to the tasting room at Painted Stave Distilling in Smyrna and send your taste buds on an adventure.

Delaware Children’s Museum, Wilmington, DE

If you’re looking for a way to keep your kids busy on a rainy day, the Delaware Children’s Museum is an excellent choice. This Wilmington museum is full of exciting exhibits like the STEM room, the DCM Earth Balloon, and more.

Xtreme Zone, New Castle, DE

Your next inclement weather day doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, it can be better than any other day when you head to the Xtreme Zone in New Castle. From karting to virtual reality to axe throwing, Xtreme Zone has it all.
