Delawareans are known for embracing small town and coastal living! We’re never too far from the beach and love to spend time by the water – whether that be one of our state’s many rivers, the Delaware Bay, or the Atlantic Ocean. While many neighboring states believe Delaware is an empty and rural farm state, there’s so much to do and plenty of shops, restaurants, and hidden gems tucked away in our towns and cities.
What are the most popular foods in Delaware?
Delaware’s signature foods include scrapple and blue crabs, but there’s so much more to the culinary scene in the First State. National chains like Grottos Pizza and Capriotti’s Subs started here, serving up signature pies and the famous Bobbie sub. When you head to the coast, you’ll find classics like Thrasher’s fries, Dolles Salt Water Taffy, and Gus & Gus Fried Chicken.
What are the weirdest things about Delaware?
One of the most fun strange facts about Delaware is that there are more than 200 chickens living in the First State for every person that resides here. Delaware has always been a heavily agricultural state, and one of our signature industries is poultry!
