Although it is the second smallest state in the United States, Delaware has plenty of interesting sights and things to do for vacationers of all ages interests, and budgets. Pristine beaches and charming coastal towns provide an idyllic setting for those who want to unwind by the beach, while a range of recreational activities provide options for the adventure seekers.
Named after the Delaware River, "The First State" is not only about beaches and water sports. If shopping relaxes you Delaware is paradise. The absence of a state surcharge means that you pay much less for everything, so explore the many boutiques, malls and other retail outlets and fill your shopping cart.
Places like the botanical garden of the Mt. Cuba Center in Hockessin and the Ashland Nature Center serve as the perfect destinations in which to relax and spend time with family discovering nature at its best. Staying at a Delaware vacation rental adds a special touch to your trip and you can choose anything from a pet-friendly beach house and luxury cottages or villas to a beautiful condo.
