Centrally located in the middle of the Eastern Seaboard, Delaware is within a scant two-hour drive of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore. The state's prime location helps make Wilmington, in the northern part of Delaware, perfect for business. The city has the accommodations, resources and space to handle large meetings and conventions. Business travelers will be also be happy to know that Wilmington has a vast array of cultural attractions to see if time allows. 

Although Delaware is the second smallest state in the Union, there are plenty of things to do. The state borders Delaware Bay in the north and the Atlantic Ocean in the south, so water sports and boating are popular activities, as are fishing and beachcombing. But if those activities don't interest you, you can always go shopping -- it's tax-free in Delaware!
