Stop in once or twice a week to the Welcome Center. Love the Cinnabon and Starbucks coffee. Good place to pick up food from any of the vendors and hit the restrooms if needed. But the Cinnabons here are really good

Get out of the car for this stop. I was pleasantly surprised that this was a great stop. We stopped at a Popeyes sir some tenders and it's good we did. There was so much traffic after.

The food options are okay, the information in Delaware could be improved in terms of quantity/variety, the bathrooms were a little rough in certain areas. I stopped at the Starbucks- my drink was delicious and perfectly made. Overall, very good because of the staff. They...More
