Summer Vacation Rentals in Delaware

If you're looking for a quiet place to kick off your shoes, enjoy some wine, and relax to the sound of ocean waves, then Delaware is the perfect vacation destination to head to this summer. The majority of the state is very peaceful and laid back, aside from the busy culture of the downtown areas, which only add to the fun! Here are the top three cities to start your search for summer vacation rentals in Delaware.

Bethany Beach

Bethany Beach is popular for its wonderful swimming weather, and frequent downtown performances during the summer months. Aside from taking a stroll down the Bethany Beach boardwalk, you can also get your feet wet with some local crabbing and boating expeditions. The kids will love using the trolley for transportation during your visit, and you'll love the beautiful scenery of the town - you don't want to miss out on the gardens of Loop Canal Centennial Park .

Check out the Bethany Beach Nature center where kids can get up close and personal with the native fauna. If that's not doing it for them, there's also a really fun kiddies park, walking trails, and not to mention, pizza!

Rehoboth Beach

Just like its name implies, Rehoboth is home to a beautiful, well-kept stretch of sandy beach. The beach opens at around sunrise every day, which gives you the perfect opportunity to take a stroll, coffee cup in hand, after an early morning breakfast. While Rehoboth Beach is quiet, it isn't lacking in character. Aside from the popular beach and boardwalk, there are also plenty of city parks to spend quiet afternoons at, like Grove Park , which features a separate play area for toddlers, and backs up next to a visitor center and museum.

The best part about booking a vacation rental in Rehoboth Beach is having access to completely tax free shopping, you can purchase all kinds of neat beach souvenirs from Beach Essentials , and make your stay feel more like home by checking out all of the popular retailers, like Oasis Bath & Body Boutique .

Fenwick Island

If you are vacationing with the whole family, Fenwick Island is the perfect place to look for summer vacation rentals in Delaware! The town of Fenwick is considerably livelier than the rest of the state, especially the downtown area. There is plenty of entertainment that will please the kids, like the Fenwick Island Lighthouse , and tons of opportunities to sit down for a casual family dinner. For instance, the Fenwick Crab House is a local favorite for its seafood, especially the cheesy crab dip.

One of the most intriguing aspects of Fenwick is its past; legend has it that the peninsula that borders the island is home to secret stashes of pirate treasure. Take the kids to the beach and spend the day as a family looking for stolen pirate booty, and when you're done, you can come back and retire to your vacation rental for an evening of relaxing. Additionally, some of the most popular activities on the Island are boating, fishing and water skiing.

You'll Never Want to Leave Delaware!

Delaware provides the perfect combination of beach fronts, classy and casual restaurants, and entertainment venues for the whole family. Staying here will feel as comfortable as home' it's the perfect mix of familiarity and exciting adventure. If the swimming at the beach doesn't interest you, make sure you look for summer vacation rentals in Delaware that have outdoor swimming pools so you can still enjoy the beautiful weather.
