Top 5 Fall Hotspots Noble’s Pond Homeowners Love

For the Noble’s Pond family, one of the best parts of fall is the weather. While the sizzling summer days are in the rearview, early fall temperatures are still mild enough that you can explore all the great outdoors has to offer. Just be sure to bring a light jacket! 

Fall looks a little different in Dover this year. While many of the city’s annual festivals and events may not be taking place, there are still several outdoor adventures that can be enjoyed while social distancing. Here are five fall hotspots Noble’s Pond Homeowners are planning on frequenting this season:  

  1. Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge 

This first fall hotspot is located in Smyrna, DE and is a wildlife refuge that serves to protect one of the mid-Atlantic region’s largest remaining expanses of tidal salt marsh. Bombay Hook houses, and serves as a breeding ground for, migrating birds and other wildlife. It’s a birdwatcher’s haven and people travel from all over the country to visit this nationally recognized birding spot. Some of the birds at Bombay Hook can also be found in and around our community. In fact, we have several who now call Noble’s Pond home because of their love for bird watching and the accessibility within our green spaces. 

Wildlife viewing, environmental education, interpretation, hunting, photography and fishing are among the activities Noble’s Pond Homeowners look forward to most when visiting Bombay Hook. 

Distance: 10 miles, 18-minute drive 

2. Garrison’s Lake Golf Club 

This public course in Smyrna, DE has a rich history behind it and is a favorite fall hotspot for the golfers of Noble’s Pond. Originally opened in 1962 and upgraded throughout the years to appeal to the modern golfer, the course offers a lush backdrop; large, undulating greens; and seven sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels.  

The course also includes a pro shop, concessions and driving range — all in modular format to keep greens fees affordable. Garrison’s Lake is the perfect place to tee off this fall.  

Distance: 4.5 miles, 10-minute drive 

3. Harriet Tubman Byway  

There’s history in every corner of Delaware. But touring the Harriet Tubman Byway is a journey through time unlike any other. The byway is a self-guided driving tour that covers 125 miles and features 45 sites, each chronicling a unique aspect of Harriet Tubman’s life and her work with the Underground Railroad.  

Whether exploring for a couple of hours or a couple of days, the Harriet Tubman Byway is a must for any history buff, according to our Homeowners 

Distance: Byway begins at Willow Grove Rd nearing Sandtown, Kent County. 9.8 miles, 19-minute drive 

4. Wicked R Western Productions  


With 61 acres of land at their disposal, Wicked R Western Productions offers endless possibilities for fall fun. A 2-mile haunted trail, pony rides, petting zoo, corn maze, ole wagon ride, barrel racing and so much more — you’ll have to visit this fall hotspot multiple times to get the full experience this Camden Wyoming, DE ranch offers.  

Some of the Noble’s Pond Homeowners are already signing up for horseback riding lessons from Wicked R’s rodeo pros! 

Distance: 14 miles, 22-minute drive 

5. Brecknock County Park  

The perfect place for recreation, Brecknock County Park offers ample space for all your favorite outdoor activities. The park offers a nature trail, fitness stations, pavilions and more.  

Homeowners at Noble’s Pond agree that, whether for a solo outing or day out with friendsyou can’t help but be amazed by all the activities at Brecknock County Park and how they cater to diverse interests.  

Distance: 8.5 miles, 17-minute drive 

There’s no shortage of fall hotspots to check out just outside of Dover. One of the things Homeowners love most about Noble’s Pond is how centrally located it is to all the state has to offer and beyond. We think you’ll love that tooThere’s so much to see … and even more to do!
