#Delaware: Where Are You?

How’s it possible that the first state, Delaware, has little to no recognition when it comes to tourism? Vice President Joe Biden can’t be pleased.

The surrounding Mid-Atlantic States offer the wiles of Philly, the ocean attractions of Baltimore, and the highly favored NYC experience. There’s also Cake Boss’s hometown of Hoboken.

But what about Delaware, the home of nearly sixty-three percent of incorporated Fortune 500 companies?

The “Small Wonder” offers more than merely sales tax–free shopping.

One may partake on a ferry ride via the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, Woodland Ferry, and/or Delaware City-Salem Ferry.

If being a beach bum is your life goal, look no further! The southern part of the state offers many lovely sand-laden spots, the most prominent being Rehoboth Beach.

Delaware is also a hub for many festivals, such as the Riverfest, Firefly Music Festival, Apple Scrapple Festival, Sea Witch Halloween Festival, and the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival.

Surely the “Blue Hen State” deserves more recognition beyond being a bridge to major Eastern cities. After all, being the first official US state should come with bragging rights and golden recognition.

Perhaps more marketing for Delaware tourism will pop up this summer, giving the area some much-needed exposure, in addition to a taste of Delawarean life for outsiders.

Like the first state, national tourism is a small wonder, indeed.
