a classic summer spot.

Fun spot, cheap eats, beach shopping. All of the beach classics - fries, ice cream, but also nice places for sandwiches and breakfast.

Didn't feel pushed and shoved here, like at Rehoboth Beach. Plenty of shops to choose from. Relaxed pace. Clean.....

Best place to visit with small kids for the day if you do not mind crowds! Better come during the week and avoid the weekends, but if you just accept that summer months mean super crowds, a little planning goes a long way.

The walk in .38 of a mile one way. Many people walk the boardwalk in the morning. You can get somethingtomeat or just have a great walk along the walkway.

I have to admit as a reviewer that I am partial to places with no blend of beach and commerce, like Cape Cod or Chincoteague (for distancing them) or mediterranean beaches and Honolulu (for keeping adjacent zones strictly distinct).

We love Bethany Beach Boardwalk. The beach is filled with families and lots of family activities. No bars, no pick up joints, no tattoo parlors. Just a good time with family and lots of great beach time!

This small boardwalk is really nice. Not very crowded and contains all the shops you would want. Prices seem a little high for the things you might need for the beach (boogie boards, umbrellas, etc), but overall it's really nice. Could use a little more variety.
