Delaware Beach Daycation
Soaking up the sunshine, swimming in the ocean and getting the experience of a beach vacation can make for a wonderful day. With Delaware’s central location, it’s the perfect destination for a quick, fulfilling beach trip, especially if you’re trying to maximize your time.
Hop in the car (or on the ferry) bright and early to make the most of your beach day. If you arrive before dawn, head to Cape Henlopen State Park for an unforgettable sunrise over the water before a casual breakfast at one of two Surf Bagel locations.
Claim your spot on the sand at any of the state parks or on one of the public beaches in Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany or Fenwick Island. All locations are great for sun bathing, swimming and sandcastle building.
After lunch is a great time for tax-free shopping. Do some boutique shopping along Baltimore and Rehoboth Ave. in Rehoboth and Garfield Parkway in Bethany or large scale shopping at Tanger Outlets along Rt. 1 between Lewes and Rehoboth.
Delaware’s beach towns are known for their food so be sure to save plenty of room for dinner at a local favorite, Big Chill Beach Club at Delaware Seashore State Park, with its lovely views of the ocean and bay.
Premium dinner spots for admiring a beautiful sunset include Dewey Beach and Fenwick Island’s waterfront restaurants, the Rusty Rudder and Harpoon Hannah’s, respectively. Cultured Pearl, Nage, or Henlopen City Oyster House are situated further from the water, but not further from first-class flavors
After making the most of your day, it’s time to pack up and head home with a smile on your face.
Your daycation will give you the perfect taste of Delaware beach life and leave you ready for another visit.
