Storming North America : Delaware, Maryland & Washington D.C.

Delaware, Maryland and Washington D.C. will have no secrets for you!

I did not do it on purpose but it’s pretty good that Washington D.C. is part of this week’s article. Why? Because in the United States there is a public holiday called the President’s Day every February 18th. But we begin immediately with Delaware and Maryland.

Delaware

Delaware is nicknamed « the first state » because it is the first state to have ratified the constitution of the United States. But he has other nicknames like « the small wonder », « diamond state » or « blue hen state » (the state of the blue bird). The capital is the second smallest state in the country but it is also a tax haven because of its low taxes.

This museum is free and is dedicated to the history of military air transport and air refueling.

Dover international speedway

Guests can watch races on a 1.6-kilometer oval track.

Maryland

Annapolis is the capital of the old line state, also known as « free state » or « cockade state ». Its largest city is Baltimore.

Baltimore

Baltimore is originally a port city on a huge natural harbor on Chesapeake Bay, one of the largest estuaries in the world. This is where you will find the gigantic national aquarium. You will also find the home of the great writer Edgar Allan Poe that you can visit. I will not forget to mention the Six flags America located in the suburbs.

Assateague Island National Seashore

On this island, you can go horse riding on the beach, watch wild ponies or take part in one of the many guided tours.

Catoctin Mountain

Ride the 43-kilometer trail along a mountain ridge and meet bears, turkeys and deer. Just nature and you!

Washington D.C.

Welcome to the capitals of the United States! A city designed by a French engineer with everything is almost free. In the month of February temperatures range between 0 and 9 °C.

Mall Park

Located at the epicenter of the city, it connects the White House to the Capitol. It is also home to sumptuous monuments and is lined by many museums such as the National Air and Space Museum which is one of the most visited of the country or the Spy Museum.

Next week we’ll be in Virginia!
