Overnight Parking along RT95 in Delaware?
« on: June 18, 2014, 07:14:34 pm »
Hello gang...heading to Mrytle Beach and looking for an overnight stop on Friday night.  Any suggestions for overnight parking along the RT95 corridor in Delaware. We usually use Cabela's but the new one in Newark at the Christiana Mall doesnt allow it because of mall rules. Any thoughts on Delaware Welcome Center Travel Plaza or any other location that is safe with kids in an RV.

I would rethink that whole Christiana thing with the Firefly festival and the Bridge closure; recipe for a lot of patience..

You know that can be interpreted several ways; Maryland was a state south of the Mason-Dixon line that had an underground railroad during the war.. jus sayin.. :o
