Firefly Music Festival Transportation Tips, Hotel Availability, Packing Tips and More


Firefly Music Festival weekend is here, and the helpful folks at Delaware’s Capital Region/Greater Dover/Kent County Tourism shared the following:

Here are travel tips for festival-goers:
— Transportation and travel routes:
— Up-to-date hotel availability:
— Tips on what to pack for the festival:
— Things to do in Delaware beyond Firefly:

When you’re getting close to Dover, from either the north or south, make sure to take Bay Road exit 95 as opposed to another exit your GPS or maps may tell you.

As of this time, the Hotel Rodney still has rooms available. I had the opportunity to stay with them, and wrote about them on MAD2Go.

The luxurious Inn at Canal Square offers sumptuous accommodations and gourmet breakfasts in their “Nantucket-Style” retreat located on the banks of the canal. Winter weekend programs include the opportunity to join Delaware’s own Kevin Fleming, noted photographer and publisher. Fleming will describe his experiences photographing scenes for his latest book “Wild Delaware” and present examples of those rare moments he was able to capture. The next morning, tour some of the parks that Fleming frequented. (

The Hotel Rodney is a gem of a boutique hotel located in the heart of Lewes’ historic district; within strolling distance of a myriad of colorful shops and restaurants. Although the building was constructed in 1926, the interior has been remodeled from top-to-bottom. The striking décor manages to balance early 20-th century architecture with sleekly sophisticated design and appointments.  Crisp, comfortable and chic, Hotel Rodney offers a stylish respite close to all the action.

Win Firefly Music Festival Ticket


Firefly Music Festival intrudes SoCo Hammocks: The Official Hammock of Firefly. Follow SoCo Hammocks between now and the festival for the chance to win a free ticket to Firefly.

SOCO Hammocks has a different approach to doing business. It stems from the belief that folks should be able to expect more out of the companies they choose to do business with. That’s why they give, each month to a new non-profit partner. They also think that you have the right to know where your product comes from and who makes it. This level of transparency allows you to relax in your purchase, knowing that you are supporting ethical business practices. These beliefs don’t simply make us different… they make us socially conscious (SoCo). So join the ranks of consumers that are expecting more from their businesses, go SOCO!
