Rahaim Saints What Makes Delaware Great

Great things come in small packages. While Delaware might not be the largest state in the union, it is one of the most exciting. This region has so much to offer visitors and residents, including:

1) History

New Castle boasts cobblestone streets and museums, while the Delaware History Trail offers 36 historic sites. Delaware — known as the First State — was the first state to ratify the Constitution back in 1787. You’ll find historic sites dating back to the 18th century.

2) Tax laws

Taxes are hardly anyone’s idea of fun, which is what makes Delaware so great — Delaware is one of only five states that doesn’t have sales tax. When you shop here, you don’t have to worry about paying extra.

3) Beaches

The state has an impressive coastline to explore. From the historic lighthouses along Fenwick Island to the pristine sands of Dewey and Rehoboth Beaches to the family-fun atmosphere at Bethany Beach, Delaware coastlines have something to offer anyone. Take advantage of water recreation opportunities, try dolphin spotting, enjoy a romantic stroll or check out the active nightlight by some of the beaches.

4) A business-friendly atmosphere

Delaware business laws are famously friendly for new businesses. In fact, about 60% of U.S. businesses are incorporated in this state, including some of the biggest corporations in the country. What makes the state so great for business? One unique feature is the Court of Chancery, which deals with corporation and business issues.

Elsewhere, businesses in court must face backlogged civil courts in their state. Here, the Court of Chancery ensures a business-knowledgeable court system and faster resolutions.

5) A cool state bird

The state bird of Delaware is the Blue Hen chicken, which is famous for its fighting ability. You’ll see this bird on signs and banners across the region.

6) The people

The people of Delaware are really the state’s biggest strength. Delawareans are caring, holding community events to raise money for special causes and members of their community. They also host many festivals and events just for fun. From the Dover Days Festival and the Firefly Music Festival to the dozens of other events, there’s something for everyone.

7) Nature

Delaware has plenty of green spaces and spots of beauty within its borders. Check out Lums Pond State Park, Trap Pond State Park, Cape Henlopen State Park, Killens Pond State Park, the Delaware Outdoor Trail, or the many other natural points of beauty to relax, unwind or even have an outdoor adventure.

Maybe you’re considering moving to Delaware or are just considering a visit. Either way, the state is ready to welcome you. Get ready to explore all of the wonderful opportunities and attractions the region has to offer.
