Did you know Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution therefore making it the first state in the Union? Delaware is a soft spoken state with it’s beautiful and lush landscape and quiet and charming towns but it is equally resolute in its deep connection to the history of the founding of our nation. Even it’s capital of Dover sort of feels like a small town. Quiet wealth and beauty reside here. One only needs to utter the name DuPont to understand it’s connection to the growth of our nation through enterprise and the preservation of the American arts. Delaware is a treasure box worth exploring from the Winterthur and Hagley on the bank of the Brandywine river to the glorious beaches along the Atlantic coast.
