The Official Delaware State Facts and Travel Tips

Beautiful Fenwick Island in Delaware
We live on the east coast and have had the pleasure many times to visit the great state of Delaware. Just like most of the east coast states, Delaware is a great state to visit if you enjoy hiking, boating, fishing, camping, playing on the beach and all kinds of other things. The state shares a border with Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and to the east with the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay.

Delaware is the second smallest state in the United States and the 6th least populous. Unlike other states, it only has 3 counties: Kent County, New Castle County and Sussex County. The capital of the state is Dover with the largest city being Wilmington. This small state has an approximate width of 30 miles wide by 96 miles long.

Inclusion - Heart of Wildwood Wall Mural by Artist Joe Lurato

Inclusion - Heart of Wildwood Wall Mural by Artist Joe Lurato
We travel down to Wildwood in New Jersey several times every year and always find new wall murals and street art. That's one beautiful thing about the island is that they're always adding something new for fans to see.

In August 2019 artist Joe Lurato painted this beautiful outdoor wall mural on the side of a building located up on the Wildwood Boardwalk. The piece is titled "Inclusion" and features the three beautiful children of the owners of the Heart of Wildwood Motel. The children are sitting on the sand and holding a globe....around the globe you'll find the words "In a World Where You Can Be Anything - Be Kind". The name of the hotel is repeated several times underneath it.

The artist's name Joe Lurato 2019 is painted in the bottom right corner. It's not an over-sized piece (meaning that it doesn't take up the entire side of the building). It's a nice size and done in beautiful colors and has a lot of meaning especially in the world that we live in today.

You can learn more about the INCLUSION wall mural (street art) by visiting the artist's Facebook page, by visiting his official website and by following the artist on Twitter.
