Delaware sits on a small peninsula jutting out along the mid-Atlantic coast. The state is famous for its historical landmarks and grand mansions. That shouldn’t be surprising considering this was the first state in the US in the 18th century. Learn more about Delaware’s fascinating history by touring the many museums and historical parks scattered throughout the state. For fans of the macabre, take a road trip to some of Delaware’s abandoned and, some say, haunted landmarks.

    Other highlights in Delaware include several state parks and miles of sandy beaches. If you have time, consider visiting some of the state’s fine islands sitting just off the mainland. Whether you’re looking for a secluded stretch of sand or some peaceful forest trails, you can find it in Delaware.
