Things to Do:

Take the ferry to Cape May https://www.cmlf.com/

Hire kayaks https://www.questkayak.com/ (Don't forget sun screen!)

If the weather's good, go to the beach! Lewes Beach is fine, or there's a beach on the oceanside in Cape Henlopen State Park. (Don't forget sun screen!)

Visit Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge: https://www.fws.gov/refuge/prime_hook/ (Don't forget bug repellent)

Visit the Zwaanendael Museum: https://history.delaware.gov/museums/zm/zm_main.shtml

Visit the US Lightship Overfalls (located just off of Pilottown Rd): http://www.overfalls.org/
