In An Unexpected Twist, The Delaware River Was Recently Recognized As America’s River Of The Year

For years, Delawareans have dealt with jokes about our tiny state, and we’ve dealt with every other neighboring state trying to steal our name. There’s Delaware County in Pennsylvania, Delaware State Park in New York, and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area – that’s about 120 miles from our border. Now, however, the one thing we all have in common – the Delaware River – is something we can all agree deserves a little recognition. The longstanding environmentalist group, American Rivers, has named the Delaware River the best river in the country for the year 2020. You can read their enlightening report right here!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
