This Road Trip Will Give You The Best Delaware Beach Day You’ve Ever Had
Now that summer is just around the corner, the weather is looking perfect for beach season! While a full vacation at the Delaware beaches isn’t in the cards for everyone, you can still experience some of the best of the coast on just one day by cruising through this Delaware Beach Road Trip.
On this perfect day trip, you'll enjoy the best of Delaware's beaches without having to travel far.
Catch a sunrise at Herring Point to start your day.
Watching the sun rise from Cape Henlopen is one of the most breathtaking experiences you can have in Delaware.
Next, head over to Egg in Rehoboth Beach for the best breakfast in the area.
Their hearty breakfast platters are absolute perfection.
Once you're so full that you might pop, walk over to the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk.
You'll find quaint shops, beachy boutiques, fun arcade games and the best junk food in the world.
After you have walked the boards, head to the beach for a little sunbathing and splashing in the surf.
Around lunchtime, you're in for a real treat. Head down to Dewey Beach to eat at Woody's.
Their crab cakes are the best in Delaware - and potentially the best in the world.
Following your delicious lunch, you'll want to relax for a bit. Head to the beach here to lay in the sunshine on the soft sand.
The afternoon is yours! Dewey's beach offers great surfing and skimboarding, or you can just relax with a great beach book.
After a long day in the sun, you've probably worked up quite the appetite! Head to Gilligan's Waterfront Restaurant in Lewes for an elegant meal.
Their grilled salmon BLT is a crowd favorite, but their extensive menu includes items like salads, scallops, burgers and fresh-from-the-sea fish dishes.
Finally, end your trip by heading over to catch a sunset at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge.
There's nothing like watching the sky turn red, yellow and gold above the beautiful protected marshlands of the Delaware coast.
So – what are you waiting for? Gather up your friends, lather on the sunscreen, and get to the beach!
