Perks of Wilmington, DE

What to do and see

About Wilmington

Nestled between New York City and Washington, D.C., and a stone's throw away from Philadelphia, Wilmington is a city with a small-town feel, offering ample opportunity to eat, shop tax-free, play and learn.

Referred to as the "corporate capital of the world," more than half of the nation's Fortune 500 companies call Wilmington home, which makes it the perfect location for Tech Ladder.

While a lot of your time will be spent face buried in your computer in a coding frenzy or collaborating with your peers and mentors, your free time is your own. So, get out and explore all that Wilmington has to offer! We'll give you some of our favorite spots to enjoy.
