Delaware Information Guide

Delaware is the second smallest state in the United States with an area of 1,954 square miles. It is bordered by Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. Its name originates from Sir Thomas West, Lord De La Warr. He was the first governor of Virginia. Delaware has the nickname "First State" because it was the first state to ratify the constitution of the United States. With hot and humid summers, tourists can find themselves at several attractions such as the Delaware State Fair in Dellington, DE. This fair runs from July 23-August 1. Delaware also has historical museums, lighthouses, and other historic places that tourists and their families can enjoy.

The Du Pont Chemical Company dominates Delaware's economy. Many business owners go to Delaware to get incorporated because it is easier, and cheaper than in any other states. Nearly 200,000 companies are incorporated in Delaware due to its popular business laws. Another important part of Delaware is its agricultural state; the sandy soil makes it a perfect place to grow fruits and vegetables.

The University of Delaware is the largest university in Delaware with approximately 3,500 graduate students, and 16,000 undergraduate students. For more information on schools and education in Delaware, visit our business directory.
