6 Boardwalks In Delaware That Will Make Your Summer Awesome
When the sun is shining, the best thing to do is hit the boards! Whether you want to pig out on junk food, enjoy stunning views, or relax on an easy trail hike, these boardwalks in Delaware are just the ticket to a perfect summer afternoon.
1. Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk
Of course, there's only one boardwalk in Delaware that can top this list! Rehoboth Beach is the best boardwalk in the state, thanks to its variety of shops, restaurants, food stands, vendors and arcades.
2. Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge
When you want something a little more natural, Prime Hook's boardwalks will show off gorgeous ponds (like Fleetwood pond, here), waterways, marshes and more.
3. Bethany Beach Boardwalk
Bethany Beach is the perfect boardwalk in Delaware for families. Enjoy a quieter, smaller stretch of shops, food stands and restaurants right along the beach. You'll find the famous boardwalk fries here, too!
4. Bombay Hook NWR
Bombay Hook is a bigger, more popular National Wildlife Refuge that features a boardwalk in Delaware. Stroll for a bit and enjoy the endless birding opportunities at this world renowned refuge.
5. Gordon's Pond / Junction and Breakwater Trail
The Gordon's Pond / Junction and Breakwater Trail is one of the most stunning walks in Cape Henlopen State Park. From the boardwalk, you'll see expansive marshes, plenty of birds and other wildlife, and historic World War II lookout towers.
6. Wilmington Riverwalk
Finally, sometimes you don't have the hours it takes to drive to the beach, or explore a wildlife refuge. That's when the Wilmington Riverwalk comes in. You'll be able to see museums, board a paddleboat, and dine along the water after strolling this pretty waterfront walkway.
Have you been lucky enough to walk each of these beautiful boardwalks? Which is your favorite? To me, there’s nothing quite like the
Wilmington Riverfront on a cool spring day.
