We don’t often think about Delaware as a real vacation destination. Most of us only drive through the first state on our way to Maryland or New York. Lush farmland, tons of history, a beautify coastline, and lots of wineries definitely merit a second look. Delaware may be one of the smaller states in the U.S., but it packs in a ton of destinations you simply have to see.
Delaware’s small size means that you can really explore ever stop before moving on to the next. Here are 3 of the best road trips you can take in the Blue Hen State
