When planning your trip to Newark, Delaware, the first item on your list should be making sure you know how to pronounce it. Unlike the New Jersey town with the same spelling, it's pronounced NEW-ark! With that down, enjoy this signature college town, with beautiful landscapes, parks and a reservoir.

UDel and its over 22,000 students are at the heart of Newark. It has a stunning campus with an urban feeling, close to the downtown area with cafes, bars and restaurants. Notable alumni include Joe Biden, Joe Flacco, Daniel Nathans, and Chris Christie.

Outside of the campus, you can enjoy many natural attractions, including White Clay Creek State Park (perfect for a hike through its trails), Newark Reservoir (amazing city views along the surrounding path), Rittenhouse Park (check out the trout-filled creek) and the Judge Morris Estate (dating back to the 1700s).
