Here Are The 11 Most Incredible Natural Wonders in Delaware

For years “Small Wonder” was Delaware’s nickname, and it still resonates with residents and visitors for the beauty that the state holds within its borders. The northern part of the state, in upper New Castle County, sees rolling hills and rocky outcrops due to Delaware’s location on the southern edge of the Appalachian Piedmont.  Stretched between Newark and Wilmington is the “fall line” which separates the Piedmont from the southern Atlantic Coastal Plain that dominates the remainder of the state.

While we have no Grand Canyon, no Rocky Mountains, no mighty Mississippi River, we still do have incredible natural wonders that give us tremendous pride in our state.
