“ City: Delaware / Country: USA / World Region: North America „
Many people have not heard of this state, probably because its the second smallest state in the USA (Rhode Island wins that honour). I lived there for a year so got to know what life in Delaware was really like. Delaware is a tax-free state which is great for shopping. You only have to pay tax on hotel/motels. The weather is variable not much different to the UK, only that when its cold its colder and whn its hot its much hotter. The year i was there, it was an extremely hot summer with temperatures reaching 100 degrees F. Delaware is an Atlantic state, its capital is Dover and it has many beaches. A lovely beach resort is Lewes and it is not too crowded in the summer. There is abit of a night life in Lewes but remember to take your ID with you as the drinking laws are very striin the USA (21+ to drink/buy alcohol). I lived in Wilmington, DE, which is a small city in the north of the state. There is not much in the way of shopping. There are a few shopping malls that not only have great shops, but brilliant places to eat. There is also a massive cinema complex which has 13+ screens, arcades, restaurants, go-karting and laser-quest. If your young and find your self in northern Delaware then check out Newark. Its a college town which houses the University of Delaware campus. There are many bars and restaurants but remember you have to be 21 years of age to drink so siutable identification is required i.e. passport. Some places do however let minors in those who look over 18+ but don't have any ID. In this situation you may be limited to certain areas of the bar, and you must have your hands stamped to indicate that you are a minor. Delaware is close to the states of New Jersy, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Baltimore so there is always an oppurtunity to visit these places. Summary of Delaware: Tax-free, great beaches, home of DuPont.
One of the South Atlantic states of the USA. It occupies part of the peninsula between Delaware Bay and Chesapeake Bay. Delaware was one of the 13 original states.
