One of several towns that make up Delaware's popular beach resort area, Lewes is quaint and touristy. The downtown is cute, and the beaches are clean. History abounds. Is Lewes a great place to retire?
Delaware sits in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula in the Northeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania and the Atlantic Ocean and is the second smallest state geographically. When it comes to population, it is the sixth least populous state but the sixth most densely populated.
The state was one of the original Thirteen Colonies and in 1787 become the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. As a result, Delaware's nickname is "The First State." Colonial blue and buff are its official state colors, and the lady bug is its official state bug.
Delaware is the only state without any national parks system. Hence, it has no national parks, seashores, historic sites, battlefields, memorials or monuments.
The largest population center is the town of Townsend in New Castle County, one of the state's three counties (Kent and Sussex are the other two). In 2013, the state had the ninth highest number of millionaires per capita in the United States.
