The Upper Delaware River Valley is a nature lover’s dream, a protected wilderness area inhabited by white-tailed deer, beavers, and black bears. Watch for the bald eagles that soar overhead and enjoy some of the best fly fishing in the northeast on the Delaware River. Rainbow trout flourish here, but you can also catch brown trout or smallmouth bass year-round, although springtime is prime time. Kayaking, rafting, canoeing, and glamping are all possible here, along with scenic drives that deliver breathtaking views of colorful foliage in the autumn. Narrowsburg, a riverside village, is one of the top spots for enjoying it all, with a wide range of eateries for nearly all budgets, fun shops to explore, walking trails, and museums. Fort Delaware Museum of Colonial History is a re-creation of a colonial fort staffed with period-dressed re-enactors, while accurate displays provide an extraordinary glimpse of life during the country’s early years, both inside and outside the walls of the fort.
