    The hot chocolate from the vending machine was more chocolate colored water, disappointing. Bathrooms were clean though.

    There is a geocache at this location. Use some spare time to find it. Android user? Download c:geo for free in the Market to find caches while out and about.

    Pick up a Spark weekly from the free newspaper boxes. Surprisingly, the coupons inside are for New Castle County, not Kent County, restaurants.
