68. Wilmington, Delaware

Overview:
To be perfectly fair, I wasn’t in Wilmington for more than a couple hours, so I can’t vouch for it except to say that its downtown has at least three blocks’ worth of charm at Christmastime.

How I got there: 
We drove from DC–a trip that takes just under 2.5 hours.

What I did:
We went to see my favorite band, Punch Brothers, perform at the Grand Opera House. I’ve traveled much farther to do so…and I’m sure I will again.

What I missed:
Everything was closed by the time the concert started–plus, we were running late–so I didn’t get to see anything beyond the venue. It was pretty, though–inside and out.
