While in the Wilmington area, you can enjoy some of the flavors of the region such as the Pierre S. du Pont Longwood Gardens or the Hagley Museum, that highlights a working water-powered nineteenth-century machine shop.
There are also plenty of historical sites just north of the conference venue in Philadelphia such as the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall and a number of art, history, and science museums for companions to spend the day away from the conference.
