Below is a sample tour of the area, but for to see a more complete listing of things going on in the area, click here!
  • Familiarize yourself with Georgetown with a Walking Tour around town.  Properties you see include the Sussex County Court House, Town Hall, The Old Fire Hall, The Mansion House, The Paynter House, Dr. Joseph B. Waples House, and the Old Sussex County Court House.  Of course you will start your tour right here with us!  1-2 hours

  • Take a ride out to the Treasures of the Sea Exhibit at our local community college (less than a mile away).  Artifacts that are part of the treasure of the Atocha are on exhibit, and include recovered cannons, silver bars, and gold; the splendor of the jewels and the excitement of the hunt can be enjoyed at this exhibit.  (Admission Charge $2.50/discounted for seniors and children:  Monday-Tuesday 10-4; Fridays 12 noon-4 pm; Saturdays 9 am - 1 pm)

  • Stroll downtown to check out our little shoppes, including a great little antique shoppe and women's boutique.

  • Experience the Nutter Marvel Carriage Museum, where you'll find lots of historic buildings and carriages from Nutter Marvel's collection, including the Queen's carriage, the Disney Carriage, a peddler's wagon and an 1800's era horse-drawn hearse carriage. This is run by volunteers so, sorry, I never know when it will be open!

  • On the way to or from the Nutter Marvel Museum, check out Georgetown's own brewery!  16-Mile Brewery opened within the last couple of years and loves to see our out-of-town visitors!

  • Shoot any pool?  We have our own Billiard Hall, right downtown.  It's brand new, and is operated by one of our locals who is committed to providing a quality establishment for the serious pool shark!

  • Just east of us is another great little historic town!  Milton has much to offer including guided or self-guided tours of the town, Abraxas Studio art gallery, Federal Street Gallery and Espresso Bar, Lavender Field (Cool Springs just outside of Milton, Dogfish Head Brewery (tours available), and the Milton Theatre.  And if you need a haircut while you're here, got visit my guy, Sean, at Urban Studio!

  • Just a short ride to the west of us is Bethel, a very quaint little town where you can do the Broad Creek River Tour.  I know nothing about this except that it is run by a childhood friend of mine who is doing this in his retirement!  So, you can give Charlie a call and tell him The Brick sent you!  "Travel with Captain Charlie on his boat, the Mud Hen. He is a licensed U.S. Coast Guard charter captain with over 45 years of boating and chartering experience. Climb aboard and observe towering riverside forest and native plants, birds, river wildlife and historic scenery where Nanticoke Indians lived and ship builders of the 1800's flourished. The Broad Creek River Tour is an adventurous experience for visitors seeking an off-the-beaten-path vacation experience. Basic tour is 2 hours, cost is $20.00 per peron (maximum 4 people.) Call for information and reservations: 302-841-0198"

  • More history awaits you in Lewes, Delaware at the Zwaanendael Museum.  In just 15 minutes, you can get to this historic little town, check out the museum, and take a walk downtown for some shopping and fine eateries.

  • No whining allowed!!!  WINE-ing is, however!  Checkout some of our local wineries and wine-tasting opportunities as Nassau Valley Vineyards, and Teller Wines, both within about 15 minutes of us.

Shopping is generally on everyone's list.  Rehoboth Beach is "home" to over 150 outlet stores, and many quaint little shops in the downtown area.  It's about a 30 minute ride from us - you'll have a great time, and will get a taste of the beach traffic that will make you glad that you're inland staying with us!

  • You can try your luck at the slots just 26 miles west of us at The Harrington Casino & Raceway.

  • South of us there's a quaint little town - Berlin, MD - that offers many small gift and antique shoppes, a couple good eateries and perhaps even the sense of a "stroll back in time." 

  • Return to The Brick, of course, to unwind from your busy day, relax on the Veranda or Rooftop Garden Terrace with your favorite beverage, enjoy our chef's wine pairing in the lobby, and/or visit with locals and other visitors in Moose & Tini's Tavern!
