rom the sophisticated storefronts of Rehoboth to the laid back boardwalk in Bethany Beach, this oceanfront area of southern Delaware truly has something for everybody. Explore historic villages, escape to one of Delaware’s State Parks for hiking and biking, or just find a spot on the sandy shores and relax the day away listening to the waves roll in. Of course, one of the most popular activities here is shopping, which has the distinction of being sales tax-free. Meander down the sidewalks of our quaint towns, stopping to browse for antiques, designer clothes, unique gifts, one-ofa-kind art and much, much more. Or head to our famous outlet malls, where good deals come standard. From the southeastern-most tip of Fenwick Island to the point of Cape Henlopen State Park, the main attraction is the ocean. But as you venture inland, you will find museums, cultural events and festivals throughout the year plus exciting outdoor adventures. Explore inland bays on a kayak, sailboat or SUP. An artistic and eclectic community, this region is rich in cultural and arts organizations. Art galleries, symphony orchestras and theaters come together to make the Delaware Beaches more than your average coastal community. There is a wealth of exciting attractions, entertainment and nightlife, all with the beautiful sandy beaches as a backdrop. All this, complemented by an eclectic restaurant scene full of intimate eateries and gourmet restaurants, and you have one of the mid-Atlantic’s favorite year-round destinations. We invite you to take in all this region has to offer, from the sun-soaked beaches to the bustling sidewalks. On the next few pages, you’ll find all the best places to eat, play, stay and shop in the Delaware Beaches. c Enjoy your stay!

If you want family fun with an exciting edge, try racing one another in some go-karts! Kids love driving cars all on their own, and go-karts are a safe way to let them go wild on the track. After you’ve finished competing, bring everyone down to a Delaware speedway where kids can zoom past you in a safe—and fun—environment.

Brush up on your gaming skills by taking everyone to an arcade. Battle with your teens (in a good way) at classic favorites, or try something new together. The loser owes the winner an ice cream cone!

Wait until your teens return to school, bragging to all their friends about the awesome time they had parasailing. This daredevil sport is thrilling enough to take them to the edge but still safe enough to give mom a peace of mind.

Even teenagers enjoy getting in touch with nature. Take advantage of the miles of bayfront coastline by renting a kayak or SUP. Nothing could be better than enjoying the cool breezes from your own waterfront view.

Come to Delaware Beaches for Exciting Events All Year Round It seems like the things to do in Delaware Beaches are truly endless. Between the beach, the boardwalk, the shopping, the dining, the nature, the sports and the amusements, it’s impossible to fit everything in during your vacation. But just to be absolutely sure you’re smitten with fun during your time here, the beaches of Delaware offer a slew of exciting events to occupy your fancy all year long. Get moving on April 26 for the 25th annual Ocean to Bay Bike Tour in Bethany Beach. Cyclists may complete 30-mile, 50-mile or Metric Century Courses, or bring the kids along for a 5-mile Family Fun Ride. Each spring, cocoa lovers delight in a very sweet event, the Annual Chocolate Festival. Assorted vendors bring endless tastes of sinful desserts baked by local restaurants, chefs and chocoholics. Know of an incredible cocoa confection? Enter the contest for free! There’s another event that foodies adore in Delaware Beaches: Downtown Rehoboth Restaurant Week. From June 1–6, diners can indulge in 3-course prix-fixe meals at select restaurants in Rehoboth Beach. No matter your culinary favorites, there are sure to be treats that will suit your palate. Perhaps you’ve wanted to get in the kitchen more and create your own culinary masterpieces. The Rehoboth Farmers’ Market offers several tours and cooking classes throughout the year. Simply meet your guide and chef at the farmers’ market, take a tour, set up a menu based on what’s available, and enjoy hands-on cooking demonstrations in your instructor’s kitchen. Throughout the season, film fanatics can participate in Monday Night Movie on the Beach in Dewey where a different film will be shown each week. Bring your significant other—or the entire family—and some popcorn to enjoy a movie under the stars. Or, perhaps you’d rather go later in the week for Wednesday Night Bonfire on the Beach! Just grab a beach chair and some marshmallows and join in the fun. Art enthusiasts look forward to the 36th Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival held Sept. 6. This year’s event will include more than 100 fine artists that will feature paintings, metal, clay, baskets, jewelry, porcelain and more. It’s all available for purchase, so be ready to find that perfect gift (or perhaps a nice souvenir for yourself!) After summer ends, things are still heating up with the hottest events around. The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival (Oct. 16–19) kicks off with Mr. Boney Jones, and terrific acts will follow throughout the weekend. With stages in Lewes, Dewey Beach, Rehoboth Beach and Sussex County and more than 20 fabulous jazz artists, music lovers from all around can unite to enjoy some quality tunes. Later in the month, the 25th Annual Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddlers’ Festival takes place Oct. 24–26 in Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach with a costume parade, dog parade, trick or treating, fun and silly games and activities, live bandstand entertainment, lantern tours, a 5K race and so much more.

Movie buffs look forward to the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival each year, and the 2014 productions are sure to inspire. Since its inaugural event in 1998, the award-winning Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival has developed into a premiere, Mid-Atlantic cultural event. This year’s festival, held Nov. 5–9, showcases approximately 100 of the best American and international films including features, documentaries and shorts. Film enthusiasts enjoy the conve-

nience of seeing all the films at one, multi-screen location. These are just a sampling of the many fine events happening in Delaware Beaches this year, so be sure to visit www.beach-fun.com, www.visitsoutherndelaware.com and www.bethany-fenwick.org to learn about other hip happenings in the area!

Bethany Beach & Fenwick Island The Quiet Resorts

W

ith bustling Ocean City on one side and the serene Delaware Seashore State Park on the other, the towns of Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island are sandwiched between two extremes. Roller coasters and arcades buzz to the south, while birds and the occasional dolphin set the scene up north. These two beach communities, known as the “quiet resorts,” seem to have adjusted to their opposing neighbors quite well, combining the excitement and amenities of the boardwalk with the beauty and serenity of nature. Today, the area is known as an ideal retreat for families and the perfect environment for a laid-back beach getaway. The community of Bethany Beach actually began as a church retreat, and while vacationers of all lifestyles fill the many condos and homes today, it still fulfills the expectations of those seeking a quiet seaside vacation. With loads of attractions just a short drive away, it is an ideal location for those who crave the serenity of the beach but also want quick

access to more high-intensity fun and attractions. The atmosphere in Bethany is decidedly laidback—folks spend the day on the beach, occasionally stopping in at area shops, restaurants and cafes to visit with friends, peruse the merchandise or fill up until the next meal. A short half-mile boardwalk is also a great place to stroll and enjoy the ocean views; stop in the few shops, restaurants and activities that line the walkway. Regular concerts at the boardwalk bandstand provide entertainment during the summer months. Though Bethany Beach definitely has that smalltown atmosphere, it also has all the modern amenities and services you could ask for such as great shopping, restaurants and plenty of things to do. The same can be said of Fenwick Island, which lies right on the Delaware-Maryland state line, just north of Ocean City. Still quiet and laid-back, Fenwick offers some of the cleanest beaches in the region.

One of the most popular attractions in Fenwick is the Fenwick Island Lighthouse, an 89-foot lighthouse built in 1858. The towering white beacon is open for tours, although visitors are prohibited from climbing the tower. Whether your idea of paradise involves a beach towel and a surfboard or a good meal and a day of shopping, the “quiet resorts” of Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island are sure to please. For more information about Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island and surrounding areas, contact the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce at 1-800-962-SURF or visit www.bethany-fenwick.org c

Rehoboth Beach

& Dewey Beach

A

n old-fashioned beach destination with a modern flair, Rehoboth Beach is one of the mid-Atlantic’s most popular beach towns. The town has garnered the nickname, “The Nation’s Summer Capital,” but Rehoboth is truly a year-round destination with quality entertainment, dining, shopping and recreation. The Rehoboth boardwalk area is about a mile long and includes a small amusement park, some arcades, restaurants, shops and many places to grab an afternoon snack. On summer weekends, there are frequently festivals, art shows and concerts right on the boardwalk. Of course, relaxing in the rays is one of the main reasons people come to Rehoboth. The beaches are clean and spacious enough for folks to spread out and enjoy a little time in the sun. The ocean is perfect for swimming, surfing or just leisurely floating in the waves. At night, the town continues to sizzle, with nightly concerts at the oceanfront, popular downtown hotspots and bars to mingle with friends. Many also head to nearby Dewey Beach for a night out on the town. Dewey, a more casual and smaller version of Rehoboth, features many popular bars and clubs that

attract crowds into the wee hours. A trolley connects to the two towns in the summer. In both Rehoboth and Dewey Beach, there are also loads of recreational activities. Participate in dolphin watching or a nature cruise, rent a boat and explore on your own, or take a few sailing lessons on the Rehoboth or Delaware Bays. Canoe and kayak outings led by nature experts are both informative and fun. Or earn your dinner by surf fishing, deep-sea fishing, clamming or crabbing. Biking is a popular way to get around Rehoboth and Dewey, especially considering the summer traffic. Rent a bike and explore each town, or enjoy an early morning ride on the boardwalk. Bike rental companies may suggest longer trails in the area or a scenic ride through one of the many state parks. Both Rehoboth and Dewey Beach offer a world-class beach getaway that is both eclectic and old-fashioned. From the boardwalk to the boutiques, these two towns are full of excitement year round. For more information about Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach, call 800-441-1329, or visit www.beach-fun.com c

Lewes

The First Town In The First State

A

stroll around historic Lewes will immediately reveal the town’s deep history and seafaring heritage. In fact, the town is more than 375 years old, and today it continues to work to preserve and honor its heritage as the first town in the first state. As with many colonial seaports, Lewes was also at the mercy of pirates for much of its history. Several times in the 1600s, the town was raided by pirates, and as the legend goes, the famous pirate Captain Kidd buried a chest of gold in the Cape Henlopen sand dunes. This prompted the city to pass a law requiring all citizens to own a musket and ammunition to protect themselves from future raids.While you won’t find today’s citizens bearing muskets, there are still many reminders of Lewes’ enchanting history around every corner. Visit the Zwaanendael Museum to get an in-depth view of the town’s history. Built in 1931, the building is an adaptation of the old Stadhuis (City Hall) in Hoorn,

the Netherlands. Changing and permanent exhibits detail the story of Cape Henlopen and the H.M.S. DeBraak and showcase material culture of the surrounding area. Above all, Lewes is a marvelous place to spend a day just walking around. The streets are alive with people year-round who are all enjoying the gorgeous architecture, beautifully preserved homes, museums and scenic streets. Downtown is ideal for pedestrians—within an area of approximately one square half-mile, you’ll find the alluring historic district filled to the brim with more than 40 unique shops, fine restaurants, inns B&Bs and more. Nearby, bay and ocean beaches offer limitless recreational activities amidst beautiful unspoiled nature. There are thousands of acres of preserved lands in Cape Henlopen State Park, including beautiful beaches, miles of nature trails, bird sanctuaries and an education center. Of course, one of the most popular ways to enjoy the Delaware Bay is aboard the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. Enjoy an 80-minute cruise as a passenger, or travel with your car. You can even explore another great coastal town at the other end of the journey—Cape May, New Jersey. Whether you spend the day learning about Lewes’ history, enjoying the beach and beautiful maritime nature, finding unique treasures to bring home or all three, you’re bound to come to one realization—one day in Lewes just isn’t enough. c

golf

Nature definitely defines Southern Delaware and Maryland golf. There are many fairways framed by towering pines, coastal wetlands, lakes, rivers and streams. Don’t be surprised if you are joined by herons, deer and other wildlife, even just a few miles away from the bustling beaches. The natural beauty of this area shines through at all area courses, providing a serene environment for total relaxation. The unique terrain found at most area courses is not only visually stimulating but also provides rare challenges that test a golfer’s ability. There are definitely some ambitious holes on area courses—challenging enough that golfers keep coming back again and again to lower their handicap. Of course, most courses were designed with both the professional and beginner in mind, so even a first-time golfer can enjoy a day out on the links at the nearby courses in Delaware and Maryland. In order to be ready to tackle that Par 3 or fish your ball out of a freshwater wetland, you need to have the proper attire and equipment. Make sure your outfit is appropriate for the course by stopping in a pro shop to find all your favorite brands of golf clothing. If you left your clubs at home, many courses offer club rentals, or you can pick up some new ones at a pro shop if you’re in the market. With help from the friendly staff and the great selections of golfing equipment, rest assured that you’ll be the most perfected golfer on the course—and the best dressed as well. Most golf courses offer lessons for every level of golfer. Whether you need to tweak your swing or get a full introduction to this game of precision, onsite pros are there to help. Learn the basics from one of the expert instructors, or work on advanced techniques with a pro. In addition to teaching the fundamentals, lessons can offer swing analyses, general pointers for evaluating the course and tips for your short game. Some golf courses also have the additional benefit of an onsite driving range. Or if you want to enjoy a day on the green with your kids, there are courses that allow them to learn the keys to playing a good game. Some even offer parent/child programs for the mini golfer who’s interested in more than just putt-putt. Top quality service and clubhouses are standard, so if you can’t get your game up to par—or under par, we should say—stop in at the clubhouse for a tasty beer and meal. Some of the area’s finest clubhouses feature deliciously fresh food and cold drinks in a casual setting. Take in the lakeside views, meet your golfing buddies and make some new friends as you reminisce about golfing excursions and share techniques. Some clubs even offer swimming, tennis and dining, all in one place. Many courses offer deals on day-long play packages and giveaways as well as “stay and play” packages that are perfect for those who want to play golf by day and relax on the greens by night. Why go anywhere else when you can have it all in one location? You can relax knowing that when you return after a long day on the green, you’ll find top-notch facilities and friendly staff ready to help you unwind. There are a great variety of hotel selections in the area for a mix of economy continued on page 24 2014/2015 | Delaware Beaches | 23

Local and Loving It Farm-to-fork and tide-to-table dining at Delaware Beach’s exceptional restaurants

F

rom upscale eateries to dockside cafes, dining in southern Delaware is truly a culinary adventure. The art of food has been and continues to be an important tradition here, and it’s apparent that area chefs take pride in their delicious creations using straight-from-the-farm fruits and vegetables and freshly-caught seafood right from Delaware’s shores.

From Rehoboth Beach to Fenwick Island, you’ll find a wide variety of restaurants, from chef-owned and operated bistros inventing uniquely appetizing menus to family-owned eateries preparing locally-sourced favorites. What most local restaurants have in common is a focus on local flavors, such as the famous Chesapeake blue crabs available April through December. You’ll see these popular seafood staples prepared different ways from battered and fried to steamed and served with a piping hot bowl of melted butter. Sometimes chefs will use the sweet, succulent chunks of meat from blue crabs to form perfectly shaped crab cakes, often prepared with little filler and topped with spicy remoulade or sweet tartar sauce. Other seafood favorites found along the Delaware Beaches are deliciously moist rockfish, tasty tautog and flaky and delicate flounder available at different times throughout the year. If you familiarize yourself with the types of seafood available in the region during specific parts of the year, you’ll benefit by getting the freshest, tastiest seafood, and you’ll be benefiting the local harvesters in the area who care about the waterways, thus preserving a tradition and way of life. Of course there are plenty of options besides seafood at the many restaurants here. Meats are always in season, but there’s a lot more to it than your average beach burgers. This category is where chefs perform some of their wildest experimentations, and the results are always extraordinary. Menus boast offerings such as slow roasted pork belly with braised fennel, baconwrapped quail stuffed with goat cheese, roasted prime rib and grass-fed burgers topped with foie gras.

Rustica Plate

Voted Best Pizza

If you’re in the mood for a juicy steak, you’ll find many eateries that pride themselves on not just featuring this as an item on their menu. Rather, they make this the item on their menu, taking great care in preparing a tender and flavorful steak cooked just to your liking. Fresh veggies from the many farms on the Delmarva Peninsula are paired with fresh catches, enticing meats and other delectable entrees for a locally sourced meal you’re sure to love. Delaware has two-and-a-half counties on the Peninsula—Kent and Sussex—making up nearly 80% of the state’s land, and fresh veggies can be found here year-round. Springtime brings favorites such as asparagus, parsnips and different types of leafy, green lettuces. The abundance of summer’s bounty provides juicy tomatoes, red raspberries, sweet peaches and various varieties of squash. Restaurant menus are still filled with local options during the fall and winter with items including pumpkins, winter squash, turnips, leeks, Brussels sprouts and beets. Look for these items prepared any number of creative ways at some of the fabulous restaurants along the Delaware Beaches. Rehoboth Beach has been attracting loads of media attention, as area restaurants have expanded beyond the typical beach resort establishments to creative and gourmet eateries. You’ll still find the classic mom-and-pop diners, with favorites in beach food, seafood dishes and a unique atmosphere.

dining Added to the mix are cosmopolitan eateries with fusion cuisine, international restaurants and chef-owned eateries with changing menus using the best of local flavors. The farm-totable—or in some cases— the tide-to-table movement is taking over the mindset of many area chefs as the need for building community, not to mention, obtaining great tasting food, becomes an obvious factor in owning a restaurant. After dinner, the town continues to sizzle with nightly concerts by the beach and popular downtown hotspots. Many also head to nearby Dewey Beach for a night out on the town. Dewey, a more casual and smaller version of Rehoboth, features many popular restaurants and bars that attract crowds into the wee hours. Listed below are some of the favorite dining spots in Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Dewey Beach, Lewes and beyond, so try one—try all! We guarantee you’ll be back for seconds. Serving up fresh seafood and steaks, the Bayside Skillet is quickly becoming a must-visit restaurant for visitors across the region! Visit www.baysideskillet.com for a look at the full menu!

Here are several tips for staying healthy and beautiful during your stay at the Delaware Beaches: • Get a spray tan at a local spa or try one of the many self-tanning lotions on the market. However you fake it, the all-over bronzed look may keep you from spending too many hours in the sun trying to get darker. • Use a waterproof sun block with an SPF of at least 30. (Dermatologists recommend the daily use of sunscreen to prevent skin damage, early aging and skin cancer.) • Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going outside. Pay special attention to the nose, ears, shoulders, tops of the feet and collarbone. • Reapply sunscreen often—at least every two hours. And remember to reapply after swimming or excessive sweating. • Try to get some shade sometime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. This is when UV rays are the strongest and can cause the most damage. Sit under an umbrella or go inside to grab some lunch to give your skin a break. • Don’t forget about your lips! They are very prone to burning, so apply lip balm with SPF often throughout the day. • Those with thin or thinning hair should pay serious attention to their scalp and tops of their heads. Either wear a hat or apply sunscreen to the scalp. • Longer locks can also be protected from the sun and salty water by applying conditioner before swimming, using a protective hair spray and by wearing a hat. • Wear UV protective sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun and keep yourself from squinting, which causes deeper wrinkles if done excessively. • If you’re spending the day at the pool, always rinse off after swimming. Chlorine dries out the skin and can cause nightmares for the hair. • Take extra caution when you are on the beach. Sand and water reflect the sun’s rays, increasing your chances of sunburn. • After a long day in the sun, apply moisturizer with aloe. This will help soothe and hydrate the skin. c
