For a small state, Delaware packs a powerful punch for its residents. Although "The First State" only measures a total of 1,982 square miles, it is one of the tax-friendliest places on the East Coast. Social Security benefits aren’t taxed, there’s no state or local sales tax, no inheritance tax, no personal property tax and the state income tax runs between 2.2 percent and 6.6 percent.
Those tax advantages might come in very handy for Delawareans who work in Washington, DC, Philadelphia or Baltimore, all of which are a two-hour drive or less. When you’re not working, you’ll have beaches, gardens, designer outlet malls, wineries, breweries and historic sites to explore.
History-rich Delaware, the first of the original 13 colonies to ratify the U.S. Constitution, houses towns like Lewes and New Castle that still display their colonial influence.

The Brandywine Valley, home of DuPont, showcases some of America’s most remarkable mansions and gardens.

DuPont Hospital for Children, and Proctor & Gamble. Other top and on-the-rise companies here have to be Landmark (construction), Swift Capital (financial services), SevOne (software), Integrity Staffing Solutions and E Revolution Ventures (retail).
Many of these businesses are located in Dover, the capital and second largest city. Dover also lays claim to the Amish Countryside, casinos, harness racing, art galleries, and a plethora of museums. You can visit collections at the Delaware State Police Museum, Air Mobility Command Museum, Johnson Victrola Museum and many others.
Keep a list handy of indoor attractions just in case, as the weather across the state sways toward a humid continental climate. Yearly precipitation approaches 40 percent, but the majority of days (60 percent) have sunshine. Summer temperatures average 78 degrees while winter’s drops to 32 degrees.
