Top Reasons to Go to Delaware
Time Travel: Delaware played a central part in the colonial politics that led to a new nation. The large Native American population and pre-English settlers from northern Europe left their mark on the Delaware landscape. Old churches, mills, mansions, and museums stand as reminders of times past.
Jump In: Water dominates the environment of this river-filled coastal state. Beaches, fishing, water sports, boating, sailing—Delaware has them all in spades. The 28-mile Atlantic coast is a natural playground of surf and sand.
Soaring Views: Delaware's coastal and inland parks and wildlife areas are popular with bird-watchers. The hardwood forests of Piedmont's rolling hills—perfect for a scenic drive—are only a short trip from the shore.
Score a Deal: Shop state-sales-tax-free at malls, outlet centers, furniture shops, boutiques, and other retailers that feature top brands.
Stop and Sip: Thirteen wineries and breweries line the Delaware Wine and Ale Trail. Rehoboth Beach is home to nationally known Dogfish Head Brewery.
Roll the Dice: Hold ’em or fold ’em at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino, in Dover, where you can play slots, cards—even the ponies, at live harness races.
