Delaware's compact size and proximity to major cities of the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region make it easy to access and explore. Only in Delaware can you view the world’s most extensive collection of Early American furniture and decorative arts, listen to a Caruso recording on an early-model Victrola, learn to cook over an open fire, and visit the place where the famous U.S. Constitution was first ratified all in the course of one day! Delaware's natural beauty, one reason Thomas Jefferson dubbed it "the Diamond State," is its most prized possession. Waves roll up on the State's 25 miles of sandy beach, inviting visitors to get their feet wet. Woodland trails, peaceful waterways, and vast nature preserves create the perfect setting for wildlife watching and enjoying the great outdoors. The many museums and historical sites found throughout the State are a testament to its pivotal role in American history. Delaware is also well known for its professional and college sports, renowned NASCAR racing, gambling, and horse racing facilities. Tax-free shopping at one of the State's retail outlet centres is another popular pastime. For those looking for something a bit different, shops specialising in antiques, chic apparel' and local artistry can be found throughout the State so whatever a visitor's interest, there is something for all.
