Welcome to Eastern Shores, DE

Delaware’s Eastern Shore comprises a string of vibrant resort towns that run along the Atlantic coast: Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany, and Fenwick Island.

As the largest and perhaps most popular of Delaware’s resorts, Rehoboth has earned the nickname of “The Nation’s Summer Capital.” From its festivals and parades to its dynamic beachfront nightlife and classic mile-long wooden boardwalk, Rehoboth embodies the ideal of coastal living.

Offering an even more relaxed pace of life, Fenwick Island is home to just 360 people. In fact, along with the Bethanies, Fenwick is part of a stretch known as the Quiet Resorts. But it’s a major attraction for families, thanks to its DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum and such historic sites as the 1858 Fenwick Island Lighthouse. For more Delaware history, enthusiasts can head to nearby Lewes and visit the Zwaanendael Museum or peruse the various historic sites along the town’s Second Street.

And for those in the mood for a little more action, Dewey Beach’s bars and clubs – along with its Spring Break party atmosphere – are sure to fill the bill. The town’s calendar of events is packed with such exciting annual events as the East Coast Skimboarding Championships, Greyhounds Reach the Beach, and the Dewey Beach Music Conference.

In short, Delaware’s Eastern Shore offers something for everyone, whether you plan to visit, relocate, or retire to this charming seaside stretch.
