The Top State And Territory Tourist Locations:D-H

Every area has a prime tourist location. Do you know what the top tourist site is in your State or Territory?

The Frog has decided to go alphabetically through the States and Territories answering what the top tourist site is in each one. Several sources will be used. You may not agree with your area's pick. Use the comments section and tell us what you think it is.

The first hub I did in this series is linked here.

The goal is to give people ideas on something they can do with their family or alone. If you really consider all, you really do not have to travel very far to have a great vacation.

In most circumstances, I will attempt to link the site's website. I will also search for pictures if possible.

Ok, let's see what the top tourist sites are:

Delaware

If Delaware is the State you would like to go to, you may be curious about the top tourist site there.

It is unanimous, Dover Downs is the choice. We are talking a beautiful Hotel, Casino, Horse Racing, and Dover Downs International Speedway in close proximity.

It is an entertainment extravaganza.

Dover Downs in Dover, Delaware is the best choice for a Delaware vacation.

This beautiful Southern State has many tourist opportunities. It is difficult to choose a top site, but the consensus says that the best site in Georgia would be Stone Mountain.

Stone Mountain is about 30 minutes from Atlanta. It is a granite and quartz mountain that has a beautiful carving in the side. This carving was made by the same man who made Mt Rushmore in South Dakota. The carving is of Stonewall Jackson, General Lee and President Davis, the main men of the Confederates. This area has walking trails, picnic areas and many other amenities.

Yes, if heading to Georgia, check out Stone Mountain.

Just 1 mile off the Southern coast is a small island called Cocos Island. It is a serene island and you can para sail, snorkel and play with dolphins.

Try Guam out for your next vacation and visit Cocos Island.
