There's no mistaking it - the mercury in the thermometer has risen, the traffic on Route 1 has intensified and the amount of clothing being worn on or near the beach has diminished. It's summertime 2013 in Southern Delaware, the busiest time of year along the 26 miles of Atlantic coastline that comprise the most wondrous part of the nation's First State.
And this year promises to be busier than ever, thanks to developments in recent months that have put an even bigger bullseye on the Delaware coast. For example, a big feather in Rehoboth Beach's proverbial cap involved the resort town being named recently by Parents magazine as one of the nation's Top 10 beach towns for families. Along with yet another 5 star beach rating (for the cleanliness of the area waterways), Delaware's most popular vacation getaway continues to rack up the accolades, bringing even more summertime visitors to Rehoboth.
Another development that has officials hoping for the best tourist season in years revolves around last fall's Superstorm Sandy, a megastorm that terrorized the Atlantic coast. Southern Delaware was very fortunate to have escaped the major force of the destructive storm, thus there was relatively nothing to rebuild in advance of the 2013 summer tourist season. As such, Delaware's beaches are open and ready to roll for the next few months. So come out and enjoy all that Southern Delaware has to offer, both in the summertime and during our extended post-Labor Day season.
There's never been a better time to visit the Delaware beaches! So what are you waiting for?!?!?!?
