Another Beach in Biden's Delaware Shoreline

Services for Real Estate Pros with Independent architectural histor'n Delaware RS-0010115

Last week I ventured down past Rehoboth Beach (once called "The Nation's Summer Capital") on a spit of land carrying Route 1 13 miles south to a little town called Bethany Beach.

I wasn't sure what to expect--would there be a big boardwalk like Rehoboth, or massive condos towering over the highway like Ocean City Maryland, to the south?

It turns out neither of these comparisons was valid. Boardwalk BethanyThere was a block of shops leading towards the ocean, with a small gathering area and stage. Beyond that was the boardwalk, extending about a block to the north and south with a few shops.  If it looks rather deserted, it was probably because of the dreary weather.


signpostWandering south on the boardwalk, we found a cute gift shop that had this creative sign outside. Not sure if it indicated where people came from, but often summer workers arrive from Eastern Europe. This has become increasingly difficult with the pandemic.


I know there were plenty of people in town because we had to go to 3 places trying to get dinner before we got to one that was not packed. And the parking pass that came with our rental was handy in finding a place to park in the heart of this tiny town.

It's been well over a year (before the pandemic) since I've seen the ocean and enjoyed a beach.  That scene is one for sore eyes.

I'm not a "beach person" but it is lovely to watch the waves!
