Think of Delaware as a little bit city, a little bit country. It’s a place that embraces a cosmopolitan East Coast culture to the north, and boasts a more Southern-style charm to the south. It’s a state that possesses charming Appalachian foothills in its upstate areas, yet quickly lapses into a more laid-back coastal lifestyle as you head south toward the Delaware Bay farmlands and the beach towns dotted along the Atlantic shore. This means that in Delaware, you can literally go from a hunt-country chateau filled with antiques in the morning to a walk along the ocean dunes in the evening. It means you can be watching birds along the coast in the afternoon, but still catch an opera performance and dinner in Wilmington that evening. It means that Delaware, from north to south, is within easy reach of where you are, and just where you want to be.
