A new state program is encouraging visitors along the state’s six historic byways by enticing them with coupons and discounts at participating businesses along the scenic routes.
Delaware travelers can redeem “Byway Bucks” at Byway-side businesses, shops and restaurants in locations ranging from the Brandywine Valley to Old New Castle.
In Centreville, for example, travelers can pick up fashionable home items, gifts, gourmet food and wine at Adorn Goods, Colliers, Centreville Cafe and The Bee Hive, all on Kennett Pike. A range of retailers and galleries along Wilmington’s Market Street offer discounts on everything from photographic supplies to sporting goods to coffee.
Delaware’s Six officially-designated byways are:
- Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway
- Red Clay Scenic Byway
- Delaware’s Bayshore Byway
- Harriett Tubman Underground Railroad Byway
- Historic Lewes Byway, Gateway to Bayshore
- Nanticoke Heritage Byway

The initiative was conceived by DelDOT and the Small Business Administration to promote the six byways and supporting local businesses by leveraging the state’s famous tax-free shopping.
