The Delaware Beer, Wine, & Spirits Trail is a good option too.
A good time to visit
The town's peak season is summer, so if you plan to visit during this time then you'll need to book your Bethany Beach vacation home well in advance. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are quieter and should fetch attractive discounts on Bethany Beach vacation rentals.
Things to do and see
Generation after generation, Bethany Beach continues to charm regulars by refusing to let go of its unhurried pace. There's much to do and see here, from tax-free shopping around town to the miniature Captain Jack's Pirate Golf course via a visit to the historic Fenwick Island Lighthouse.
Don't miss the Chief Little Owl totem pole, which depicts a Nanticoke Indian chief with a north-facing eagle on his head — it is considered Delaware's signature sculpture. Just three miles from the city center is the impeccable Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club, lined with wetland grasses and stunning sand dunes.
For an educational family experience, visit the Bethany Beach Nature Center. This spot houses interactive exhibits, aquariums, taxidermied animals, and live turtles, as well as freshwater and tidal wetlands. Following all this excitement, relax back at your sea-facing Bethany Beach vacation rental and recap the day's events.
Art and culture
Discover Delaware's history at the Zwaanendael Museum, at which exhibits span everything from the legacies of whaling to the War of 1812. The museum's building has been modeled on the ancient city hall in Hoorn in the Netherlands. For a dose of live music or cinema screenings in a romantic beach setting, Bethany Beach Bandstand does the trick! Book lovers should take note of the South Coastal Library, home to a fine collection of books for children and adults and a perfect rainy day option.
While in Bethany Beach, plan an excursion to the Delaware Seashore State Park. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Rehoboth Bay, and Indian River Bay, millions of visitors flock to this park annually for the sheer scale and variety of waterside attractions that line Delaware's coast. Located further up Delaware Bay is the gentle surf of Lewes Town Beach. Rehoboth Beach attracts singles and youngsters for some hip and exciting nightlife.
The five-mile-long Junction and Breakwater trail is flat, shaded, and offers superb views of the salt marshes, making it an ideal trail for families. Alternatively, Bethany Beach invites visitors to indulge in extended sessions of kayaking, wind surfing, boating, stand-up paddling, and diving.
This family town pleases everyone from toddlers to grandparents, which perhaps explains the profusion of family reunions one finds here. A perfect blend of fun-loving diversions and serenity, even some celebrities have begun to take notice. Book your Bethany Beach vacation rental and come on over to see what the fuss is all about!
