Kahunaville

Restaurant

Quote:
Kahunaville has a Pacific Island flavor that permeates the entire complex. . and it is a complex! There is a large bar that stands alone, a pool table area, a large outdoor deck that hosts concerts (usually local or B-list famous bands), and a large arcade area that is a child's delight.

Covered Bridges

Story/Tip

Quote:
Covered bridges are a rare find in north Delaware, and they can both be found in the Brandywine Valley. Brackenville Bridge is on Brackenville Road near RT 82 and the Ashland Nature Center. Be sure to drive carefully as there can be children playing around the bridge as they are visiting Ashland. The second is Smith's Bridge, which is on Smithbridge Rd. It may be in PA, but it's really darn close to DE if it's not. This bridge was recovered a year ago after a year-long reconstruction. The bridge was covered at its beginning and then became an uncovered wooden bridge. Time weathered it and the boards warped. Though it was sturdy enough, the look of the bridge was enough to frighten some peopl...Read More
