Are you daydreaming about long, lazy afternoons lying in the sand, reading a good book while the kids splash in the surf? Of course, the Delaware beaches provide the rest and relaxation. But, there is much more to discover about the beaches than sand and surf!

Enjoy vacations filled with savory dining in Rehoboth, joyful nights in the Dewey Beach clubs, and long afternoons browsing the tax-free stores in and around the Delaware resorts.

Freeman StageOnce you get “beyond the sand,” the Delaware beaches are also about entertainment:

- the rock clubs of Dewey, the top musical acts of Freeman Stage at Bayside, the jam sessions in the bars.

They are also about dining: the top-rated restaurants of Rehoboth Beach, the beloved beach treats like Thrasher’s french fries and Nic-o-Bolis, the unending variety of intriguing cuisines and kid-friendly dining options.

Then, there is the tax-free shopping, always a top attraction at the Delaware beaches – favorites include the name-brand shops of Tanger outlets and the artsy boutiques of Rehoboth.

For more fun in the sun, travelers discover Jungle Jims and Thunder Lagoon Water Parks! Enjoy soaking in a lazy river, the action of water slides or a "friendly" game of miniature golf.

Find attractions that have a touch of outdoor allure with biking and hiking trails of Cape Henlopen State Park, or the watersports and boating activities available on Delaware’s peaceful inland bays.

That’s what people love about Delaware’s beaches – they’re always ready to please, no matter what your flavor of fun!
