We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. You really love chickens.
Pretty much everyone in Delaware knows someone who is just a little too obsessed with their chickens. We have seen it all - from chickens on leashes to hand-knitted chicken sweaters.
2. You'd rather be in a kayak than on top of a mountain.
We don't have much in terms of elevation in Delaware, but we've got some of the best water trails in the country. If you'd rather paddle through baldcypress trees than trek through a mountain pass, this state is for you.
3. You've got a thing for small towns.
We're a state that's full of tiny towns. If you love getting to know your neighbors and keeping up on town gossip, you definitely belong in Delaware.
4. You're an adventurous eater
Delaware is full of amazing mom and pop restaurants, and most of them make delicious comfort food. There are a few places, though, that serve up a slower lower staple... muskrat.
5. You don't like being in the car for more than an hour or two.
Luckily, everything in Delaware is just a short drive away.
6. Big cities intimidate you.
Our entire state has fewer than a million residents... so when we head to cities that have millions of people, we're totally overwhelmed.
7. You can appreciate a good garden.
The DuPont mansions are known for their extravagant gardens, and Delawareans love to visit. We also have several gorgeous urban gardens, like the Goodstay Gardens and the Marion Coffin Gardens in Wilmington. If you love gorgeous gardens, you'll belong in Delaware.
8. You live for the beach.
If you stray too far from the coast and you feel landlocked and claustrophobic, you might belong in Delaware. The beach is always a short drive away.
9. You love history, and constantly spew random facts about our country's earliest days.
Delawareans are proud of being the first state, and we'll gladly tell you all about the stories we grew up hearing from our past.
10. You appreciate the odd things in life
Delaware has some eccentric towns, shops, and people. From Blue Moon at Rehoboth Beach to the Oddporium in Arden, you'll find your unique crowds in our little state.
