Being the largest city in Delaware made Wilmington a perfect location for our car shipping affiliate.
Wilmington’s climate is somewhere between a temperate and humid subtropical. There are hot, humid summers, and cool to cold winters with precipitation spread evenly throughout the year. Wilmington is the area where the Delaware River and Christina River meet. This makes 36% of the city’s area water. Since Wilmington lies in the geological transition from the Mid-Atlantic Piedmont Plateau to Atlantic Coastal Plain, there are areas near the Christina River that are marshy.
Just a few miles south of downtown is Wilmington Airport. This is used for the Delaware Air National Guard and Delaware Army National Guard. The closest international airport is Philadelphia International Airport, about 22 miles northeast. The Port of Wilmington is a marine terminal that is able to service 400 vessels per year. As a full-service deepwater port, it handles over five millions tons of exported and imported goods annually. There are also two freight railroads that serve Wilmington, Norfolk Southern and CSX, that have their own major freight yards.
There are four main parks that make up the Wilmington State Parks. One of these is Brandywine Park, which houses Brandywine Zoo and Baynard Stadium. Brandywine Zoo is a smaller zoo at only 12 acres, located on the banks of the Brandywine River. The exhibits include animals from temperate areas of Asia, native to America, and also have the world’s largest rodent, the capybara. Baynard Stadium hosts soccer, football, and track & field events to name a few. The other 3 parks are Rockford Park, Alapocas Woods Natural Area, and H. Fletcher Brown Park.
There are four colleges and two universities that Wilmington home. The universities are University of Delaware and Drexel University. Delaware College of Art & Design, Delaware Technical & Community College, Springfield College, and Dawn Career Institute make up the colleges. The University of Delaware is the largest university in Delaware with locations throughout the state. Drexel University is a private research university.
