Many Delmarva counties are much more conservative than the "mainland" counties of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
Most of the land is rural, and there are only a few large population centers.
Its Atlantic Ocean coast is formed by the Virginia Barrier Islands in the south and the Fenwick Island barrier spit in the north.
The culture on Delmarva is starkly different from the rest of the Mid-Atlantic region and is much like that of the Southern United States.
Including all offshore islands (the largest of which is Kent Island in Maryland), the total land area south of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal is 5,454 sq mi (14,130 km).
In older sources, the peninsula between Delaware Bay and Chesapeake Bay was referred to variously as the Delaware and Chesapeake Peninsula or simply the Chesapeake Peninsula.Some studies have shown that Native Americans inhabited the peninsula from about 8000–10000 BC - since the last Ice Age.Recent research indicates that Paleo-Indians inhabited Maryland during the pre-Clovis period (before 13,000 BP).Miles Point, Oyster Cove, and Cator’s Cove archaeological sites on the coastal plain of the Delmarva Peninsula help to document a pre-Clovis presence in the Middle Atlantic region.Thus, these sites suggest a human presence in the Middle Atlantic region during the Last Glacial Maximum.
