Charter a private jet from Georgia to Delaware
Whether you plan to visit Delaware for business (the state’s business-friendly corporate law makes it something of a corporate haven) or a spot of tax-free shopping (it’s also one of only five states with no sales tax), charter a private jet to travel in style and comfort to the second smallest state in the union.

Top places to visit in Delaware
American Revolution shipwreck
In 2004, a wrecked ship dating back to the American Revolution was discovered off the Delaware coast during a dredging operation near the Roosevelt Inlet off the coast of Lewes. In 2006, underwater archaeologists decided it was most likely a British merchant vessel called the Severn that had run aground sometime in the 1770s. The remains are in a surprisingly well-preserved state, but only a small portion of the hull is intact. The ship was carrying cargo from Britain, Holland, Germany, South Africa, and China and the captain and all crew survived the sinking in March 1772. Thousands of artifacts were collected and given to archeologists, but some objects still wash up along Lewes Beach.
Doors of fame
The Rehoboth Art League is home to a pair of old doors covered with the signatures of Rehoboth Beach artists going back to the 1930s, when the league’s doors opened for the first time. The Art League at Rehoboth Beach has a 900-piece permanent collection, as well as a number of rotating exhibitions. You’ll want to take your time picking out the signatures of local legends like the late Jack Lewis and many other creative luminaries.
It’s strange what the sea coughs up
The Discoversea Shipwreck Museum is home to a number of oddities that have turned up on beaches or been rescued from shipwrecks, both locally and further afield. Exhibits include a desiccated merman and even a whale penis bone. The vast museum collection (around 10,000 artifacts) on Delaware’s Fenwick Island is well worth a visit, along with the seashell shop.
The unscalable Fort Delaware
Fort Delaware was built in the 19th Century as one of three forts designed to protect the city of Philadelphia from attack. As it turned out, the inhabitants of the fort on tiny Pea Patch Island did such a good job that they never had to fire a hostile shot. Today it’s a scenic park and a museum, and rumored to be haunted.
Victrola in Dover
The Johnson Victrola Museum houses an impressive collection of Victrola “talking machines” from the early 20th Century. Exhibits are filled with records, programs and Victrola memorabilia, along with an impressive number of original record-playing machines with their hand-cranks and trademark funneled horns. The museum has artistically arranged the machines to showcase their beauty and diversity.
