Delaware Travel Guide

On the east coast of the US, Delaware is a scenic state that has become renowned across the country for its unique and diverse landscapes, as well as playing host to a variety of unusual events throughout the year. It is both the cities and the nature that make Delaware a charming travel destination.

Things to Do in Delaware

The capital of Delaware is Dover, and the city is well worth a visit. Despite being the state capital, Dover has a small town charm about it, and its 18th-century architecture makes travelers feel as though they have been transported backwards in time. Wandering the streets of Dover and stopping by the various coffee shops, boutique stores, and farmers markets is a pleasant way to pass the time. Visitors should be sure to pay a visit to the beautiful First State Heritage Park, a recreational site that contains ornate colonial landmarks that date back to the 18th-century. For example, the Old State House, which was created in Georgian style architecture.

Owing to its coastal location, there are many excellent beaches in Delaware that are worth visiting in the summer months. Don't miss Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany Beach, and Dewey Beach.

Delaware's second city of Wilmington is also charming and worth stopping by. Wilmington is loved for its Riverfront district, a quaint area filled with cobblestone streets, scenic parks, boutique stores, and eateries that serve everything from Italian dishes to All American classics.
