Delaware To Do is a constantly evolving site of things to do, fun to be had, sights to see and good stuff to eat in Delaware and surrounding areas. Events will be listed and added to the calendar on an ongoing basis, and reviews will be provided when possible. Our primary focus will be northern Delaware, but we’ll also be providing info on the greater Philadelphia area, and any others that we consider viable candidates for daytrips or weekend getaways.
We’ll post any relevant sales and deals as time allows. We definitely favor local, “green,” and family-owned businesses but don’t exclude national chains.
The Elton clan is a family of five and well aware of how expensive life in this area can get. Family budgets will always be a factor in what we choose to post. (That being said, sometimes you gotta splurge… kids don’t stay kids forever.)
In addition, we’ll be posting ways to find family fun wherever you are: science experiments, craft ideas, movie & book reviews, game & toy reviews, kid-centric recipes, and anything else that strikes our fancy.
We’re based in Landenberg PA, straddling the DE-PA-MD tricorner. Relatively recent transplants to Pennsylvania, we still spend the bulk of our time in Delaware: the Home of Tax-Free Shopping, the First State, the Small Wonder, a Place to Be Somebody.
ROBIN ELTON: Social media manager, content marketer, website manager and editor, freelance copywriter, hobbyist photographer, mom blogger. I’ve been writing for the web since 2008; my other sites are simple. green. organic. happy. (green living), Honey Badger Mom (fashion, fitness, feminism and finding your inner badass) and the Honey Badger Revolution (a modern day salon of badass women behaving badly, possibly making history). You can connect with me on LinkedIn.
MAVERICK: age 16. He’s my patient CrossFit partner. Robotics club, learning to drive, resident IT support.
CASSIDY: age 12. Soccer, books, cooking and YouTube. Currently team #PinkHairDontCare, but don’t call her a girly girl.
JEFF: also known as Dad. Not likely to author any posts, but he gets sad when we don’t mention him.
THE DOGNESS: His name is Jimmy and he also likes to be included. Who knows, he may have an opinion to offer from time to time. We adopted Jimmy from the Delaware Humane a few years back.
KARMA: Our Saint Bernard doesn’t know she’s not still a puppy. Karma was born a full 36 hours after her brothers and sisters. We thought that meant she was a medical miracle, but now we suspect she might just be dumb. We love her anyway.
We’re also lucky enough to have family in the area, including nieces and nephews that love when Aunt Robin has fun stuff for them to try out and review.
