Delaware may be one of the smallest states in the United States, but it contains a wealth of natural beauty and varied landscapes. The northern part of the state is covered by rolling wooded hills that are ideal for hiking. The coastal part of central Delaware is full of wild waterways to explore by canoe or kayak. To the south, there are sunny stretches of beachfront perfect for water sports and sunbathing. With numerous scenic drives, pristine parks and miles of sandy coastline, Delaware is a great place for youth camps and adult retreats.
