Delaware is a little short on land, but it's long on water—much of it borders the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, its southern beaches and beach towns are a big draw. All have sand and sea, but they are remarkably varied, ranging from tranquil stretches of protected shoreline to low-key resort towns to busy vacation centers such as Rehoboth Beach.

There are some interesting things to do away from the water, as well. Northern Delaware has a strong list of cultural attractions, including the remarkable Winterthur Museum in the Brandywine Valley, one of several attractions initially owned by the du Pont family.

Given its compact size and many things to see, Delaware can provide travelers with a lot of activities in just a few days' time. Those with a week or more will find the Delaware shore a relaxing place to linger—or they might consider seeing the state as part of a larger tour that includes Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and New Jersey.
