Mid Alantic

MID-ATLANTIC STATES DELAWARE, MARYLAND and NEW JERSEY New Jersey often seems overshadowed by its bigger-than-life neighbor, but the Garden State has much to offer visitors. New Yorkers themselves may opt to take a short trip out of town to a completely different world in New Jersey. One favorite getaway area is Cape May on the southern tip of New Jersey on the northern peninsula leading to Delaware Bay. Another destination for fun is Atlantic City with its glitz, glamour and gambling tables. There is also a great deal for history buffs to explore, especially relating to the Revolutionary War period. Next on your voyage south are Delaware and Maryland. These states share a peninsula and a visitor to either should make it a double-header. Bounded by the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays, this land has a rich history and is known for its seagoing culture. Bays, inlets, peninsulas and islands dot the coast. Again there are many opportunities to find historical spots. The War of 1812 is prominent in Maryland's history, including providing the inspiration for the writing of The Star-Spangled Banner. The capital of Maryland, Annapolis, still houses the U.S. Naval Academy and produces the cream of the crop of our seagoing officers. From lighthouses to the Allegheny Mountains, Maryland touches on many east coast cultures and traditions. Delaware Tourism Office 99 Kings Highway P.O.
