I am a teacher and I have many options available to me during the summer vacation. I choose LBI time and time again. I have 2 children and they love this summer house. After long days at the beach, the kids love Fantasy Island and mini golf. Teenagers also love the freedom and safety of Fantasy Island. We always include a trip to the water park and Bay Village Clam Chowder. My favorite part about this house is the fenced-in yard. The kids can run and play while the adults barbeque and relax during happy hour. The kids are tired by night and ready for a movie in the children's play room. There are many excellent restaurants in walking distance of 17 Delaware if you are not up to barbeque. We usually go to the Beachhouse restaurant, 2 blocks from the house. When the weather isn't cooperating, the house can accomodate an adult movie, a children's movie and a card game in the dining room. The house is great for multiple families. If you are a runner, walker or a biker, there is an exercise path that runs the length of Bay avenue. There is also a gym 2 blocks away across Long Beach Blvd. We treasure our vacations at 17 East Delaware in LBI.
