Small but fun

Very nice boardwalk but on the small side. A couple of nice shops. Walk around the town area for a full idea of the town. Cute.

Clean, friendly, family place. Many stores selling typical shore items. Many places to eat. Parking is a bit to be desired with a 2 hours parking limit on the meters. I would go back again.

We stayed in a B&B at Bethany Beach for a family wedding. The Boardwalk and downtown were always very busy when we were there. Lots of small souvenir, beach resort, tshirt, ice cream, popcorn, fudge, etc shops - you can find anything you need. Some prices are okay, some are high.

Just off the Boardwalk is where you will find... More

Family friendly place to hang out and shop. Many of the boutique stores are expensive - but fun to window shop. Always a great family outing. Love looking at the beach and getting ice cream.

Bethany Beach Boardwalk is a cute little town. I would travel the additional 15 minutes and go into Rehobeth instead. Bethany Beach Boardwalk is a smaller scale to Rehobeth Beach Boardwalk
