Delaware is in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula, with the far eastern sections of Maryland and Virginia lying below it. Many visitors to coastal Delaware, including the beaches near Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, find the car/ferry from Cape May, NJ to Lewes the most convenient way to travel to the area. (New York City area residents, for example, can leave the metro area around 7 a.m. and be on the first tee at one of Delaware's fine golf courses just after noon.) Delaware is the second smallest, the sixth least populous, yet the sixth most densely populated state. The state is a magnet for retail buyers from surrounding states since it charges no sales tax.
