    Downtown Wilmington is a fascinating urban area, and one that is particularly supportive of the arts. Down the street from DCAD is the Grand Opera House and the World Cafe Live at the Queen. On the first Friday of every month, galleries and studio spaces downtown open their doors to the public and display local artistic talent and often provide refreshments!

    There isn't much to do in Wilmington. There are a few museums close by, two malls, and a bowling ally you can catch a bus to. The most fun thing I do in Wilmington is travel. It's 3.50 one way to get to Philadelphia and less than 40 to travel to New York.

    Unfortunately most of downtown Wilmington, Delaware is either extremely dangerous or extremely dull. However, there are some excelent live music venues near the school, such as the Queen and the Wilmington Grand. There are also acceptional restaurants close to the school, like the Chelsea Tavern and DiMeo's Pizza.

    Wilmington doesn't have much for college students to do but the surrounding big cities Philadelphia (30 mins away), New York (3 hours away), and Washington D.C. (2 hours away) have many places for students to go.

    Not much to do, DCAD is in Wilmington and it is a business area. You could take the bus and go to the nearby mall.

    well Wilmington De is not as exciting as Newark but i guess that can be looked past. We do have some great karaoke nights, casino night and other really fun things well all get together and do!
