The Delaware Tourism Office — Visit Delaware — recently received a coveted Adrian Award.

The award, often described as the Oscar of the travel world, comes to Delaware for the most recent edition of the “Official State Travel Guide,” which was released in May. Visit Delaware joins tourism offices in major travel markets, including California, North Carolina, Utah, Orlando, Las Vegas, Seattle and more, as recipients of Adrians.

The travel guide was part of the complete realization of a rebranding effort for Visit Delaware launched in 2015.

Free copies of the guide are available at state travel plazas and welcome centers, airports and rest areas around the region and consumer tradeshows. The guide is also available at
