Congratulations on finding the best moving company in Delaware!
When you move to Delaware, you will be surrounded by our great nation’s colonial history. Delaware, being the first state to ratify the Constitution in 1787 and thus being known as “The First State,” is rife with colonial American heritage and history, such as being the first place that Betsy Ross’s flag was flown. This New England state is only 96 miles long and broken into a mere 3 counties, making it the second smallest state behind Rhode Island. The geography is mostly flat and the mean elevation is the lowest in the country. The climate is moderate due to its position on the Atlantic Coast and the state is capable of growing a large range of vegetation. Delaware was named after the first governor of the state, Lord de la Warr. Notable people from Delaware include Joe Biden, Judge Reinhold, and Nancie Currie, the astronaut.
There are a number of great cities to move to in Delaware. New Castle is a city in Delaware that has a 4 by 5 block historic district with architecture dating back to the 17th century. Several films and television series were filmed here, such as Dead Poet’s Society. The town of Middleton hosts a baseball marathon on Labor Day for charity that successfully raised $65,000 in 2013 and an annual peach festival every August complete with food, crafts, and a parade. The University of Delaware can be found in Newark, a town with a history built on schools. The first graduating class of the Newark Academy was graced with 3 signers of the Declaration of Independence.
The capital city, Dover, is the state’s second largest city, and is located on the St. Jones River. It is here you can find the renovated Schwartz Center for the Arts and the non-profit organization, The Children's Theatre, Inc. of Dover and Kent County.
