Delaware is the second smallest state in area after Rhode Island. Although 2007 estimates rank the state as 45th in population in the U.S., Delaware ranks 6th in population density with more than 60% of the population living in New Castle County, the northernmost county in the state. Overall, Delaware is ninety-six miles long and ranges from nine to thirty-five miles across. Delaware, part of the Delmarva Peninsula, is situated on a level plain. In fact, even with its highest point (the Ebright Azimuth) 100 feet higher than the highest point in Florida, Delaware has the lowest mean elevation of any state in the U.S. The northernmost part of the state, where most of the population resides, is part of the Appalachian Piedmont Mountains.
Oddly much of Delaware could be considered an island, as the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal transects the isthmus just south of Delaware City.
Because most of Delaware is part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, much of Delaware’s climate is affected by the ocean. All of Delaware has hot, humid summers. But in the southern part of the state, there is a milder climate and longer growing season than in the northern portion of the state. For this reason, the southern two counties in Delaware, Kent and Sussex, are primarily based in agriculture, while the northernmost county, New Castle, is based in industry.
The gross state product of Delaware was $49 billion in 2003 and the per capita income for the state ranked ninth in the nation at $34,199. Delaware’s largest employers are government, education, banking, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, health care, automotive manufacturing, and farming (specifically poultry, nursery stock, soybeans, dairy products, and corn). In general, Delaware’s economy outperforms the national average of the United States.
Unlike many states, Delaware’s educational system is centralized in a state Superintendent of Education. In this organization, local school boards retain control over taxation and some curriculum decisions. Major universities in Delaware include Delaware State University, Drexel University at Wilmington, Wesley College, and Widener University School of Law.
Delaware does not have designated national parks, battlefields, memorials, or national monuments but it does have several museums, wildlife refuges, parks, and lighthouses. Rehoboth Beach, along with Lewes, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany, and Fenwick Island, all comprise Delaware’s beach resorts. Nicknamed “The Nation’s Summer Capital”, these beaches are frequent summer stops for residents of Washington D.C. as well as visitors from Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Vacationers are drawn to Delaware’s beach resorts for a variety of reasons including these towns’ charm, artistic appeal, nightlife, and tax-free shopping.
Delaware is also home to several festivals and fairs throughout the year. The Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival and the Bethany Beach Jazz Festival mark the end of summer in the state. The Apple Scrapple Festival is held in Bridgeville. The Sea Witch Halloween Festival and Parade are held at the end of October. The Return Day Parade is held after every election in Georgetown.

In a state like Delaware, where economy ranks ninth in the nation and leading industry sectors include government, education, banking, and healthcare, businesses need to take care of just that- business, without the unnecessary stress of an unreliable Internet connection.
