Small Wonder is the motto of Delaware, but it applies to Wilmington as well. This is a large town or small city that dates back to pre-revolution days, originally as a Swedish colony, though its modern occupants are mostly Irish or Black. Delaware as a whole and thus wilmington as Delaware's center, has a reputation for innovation and creativity, the use of loopholes in other states' laws. If small means prosperous, then Delaware, like Luxembourg, is part of the reason why.
There are a lot of good comparisons between Luxembourg and Delaware, population, economics etc., but I think Delaware is actually about 2x the geographic size and 80% of the population.
- Pros:Kind of small
- Cons:Kind of small
- In a nutshell:Kind of small, but nice
The stained glass shown hereis German, the others are American. This is a functioning Church, and you can attend mass... more travel advice
This is something of a cross between the ship's museum and a Swedish-American museum. Its not what I would call... more travel advice
