Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport Program Provides Discounted Admission to Eleven Spectacular Attractions in Greater Wilmington, DEL
Once again this year 2013 The Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport provides significant savings for both visitors and residents. Eleven attractions in the Greater Wilmington Area have combined to form the Brandywine Museums & Gardens Alliance and are offering the Passport Program once again in 2013. The Brandywine Treasure Trail Passport provides one-time admission to each of the eleven spectacular attractions at a substantially discounted rate. Passport prices are $35.00 for an individual adult and $75.00 for a family which covers two adults and three children. That represents a potential savings of almost $100 for an individual and $300 for a family. Passports are good from May 25 through September 2 and can be purchased at any of the eleven participating attractions.
