Summer may seem a long way off, but look at it this way: The sooner you start thinking about the beach, the less you’ll be preoccupied by winter’s harsh reality. The more you imagine yourself lying in the sand, the more you’ll be able to convince youself that the snow will eventually melt, the days will eventually grow toasty, and summer will resume its rightful place in the world.
Thinking about a Delaware beach vacation during the year’s frigid months also has financial benefits: Travelers who plan their beach vacations in the dead of winter often snag the best deals on prime lodging and prime weeks, and also avoid the inevitable problem of dwindling supplies as the height of the summer season approaches.
