Excellent spot to stop for a bio-break while heading south. Perfectly located a few miles in from the bridge. Very big, with lots of parking.

Even though Delaware is a small state there is a lot to see. The Delaware Welcome Center Travel Plaza provides a wealth of information about sites to see and about the history of the area. Worth the stop.

Does anyone know if this is a rest stop where you can park & leave your car for a few days? I'm looking to meet up with family and this is a good meeting point to continue our trip but we do not want to drive multiple cars. Would it be safe to leave a car here for 4 days or would it be towed? Any information would be really helpful, thank you!
