Together, these four states make up a portion of a geographical region of the United States, but each state has its own unique cultural and regional distinctiveness that distinguishes it from its neighbours. Delaware is famous for its Nascar circuit, while Pennsylvania is famous for gastronomic diversions such as the Philly Cheesesteak and the pretzel.

What unites the region is the sense of history that pervades the atmosphere. You can explore the site of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, see a steam powered tug in Baltimore built in 1906 that is still in operation, and you can visit the museum at Burlington County Prison in New Jersey, a reformist facility that when it closed in 1965 was the longest running prison facility in the U.S.
