Known as "The First State," Delaware is also first on the list for East Coast diners to discover a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of nearby larger cities without even needing to book a plane ticket. With most of the state bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect place to experience the dining delights of the sea. Those with a gusto for shellfish can crack into their own whole, grilled lobster, or kick back and enjoy a cold beer and oysters Rockefeller while enjoying the beauty of sandy beaches and nearby wetlands. Those who yearn for old favorites with new twists will find their beach sandals knocked off by goat cheese and rosemary pizza. The coast never tasted so good.
