Get to know Delaware.
STATE POPULATION: 952,000
Delaware was the nation’s first state, and today it is a ocean playground for visitors hailing from near and far.
Witness history at First State Heritage Park in Dover, which includes the Old State House. Wander around Wilmington, known for its Riverfront parks, shopping, and restaurants. Visit lighthouses, historic landmarks, and natural areas throughout the state. Spend summer days at the beach resorts of Rehoboth, Lewes, Dewey, and Bethany, and listen to jazz at festivals in multiple cities.
Those looking for more unique entertainment can experience the World Championship Punkin Chunkin, held in the state since 1986 (yes, it involves hurling pumpkins).
Delaware is a small, spread-out state. Residents use cars for local transit, and the closest major airport is Philadelphia. Amtrak offers a rail option for travel along the Northeast Corridor from Washington, D.C., to Boston.
