Protecting byways tells the story of Delaware’s heritage

Byways give travelers an alternate travel route that showcases the natural beauty, history, and culture of the state.  Delaware Greenways partners with community leaders and government officials to designate certain roads as byways.


What is a Byway

A Scenic or Historic Byway is a road that travels through an area that has scenic, historic, natural, cultural or recreational highlights.  Byways offer a backroad alternative to traveling the highway, while showcasing our state’s heritage and natural beauty.
