Love taking a stroll along the boardwalk at night. There is always so much activity. Grab an ice cream and sit and listen to the music, eat, shop or just people watch.

What better way to start the new year with a brisk walk on the boardwalk admiring the beach and ocean! Bethany has done a great job building the dunes to a height where the beach can be viewed as you stroll the boards. We like it that there are no tacky shops and greasy smells while enjoying this beautiful Boardwalk.

A nice beach town to visit for a day. Bethany has a tiny boardwalk and small shopping area just off of Coastal Highway. A pleasant 1-day trip.

I usually walk the boardwalk for my hour long walk about 6 days a week weather permitting. The first thing I do, is check out the beach to see how strong the waves are and if anyone is in the water (this is after Labor Day when mostly residents are in town). Yesterday, December 16, two teens were in the... More

I was here in the Spring and though there were people about I found it much calmer than either Rehoboth Beach or Ocean City. There are a few shops not all were open yet in April. I noticed there are not the larger hotels that you see at other beaches. Be sure to take notice of the totem pole, very... More

If you are day-tripping or simply don't wish to miss a town feature, the boardwalk is a pleasant experience. It has few concessions and the walk can be completed in about ten minutes when uncrowded, so plan to combine it with a stroll through the shops and boutiques for two inland blocks leading to the bandstand and the boardwalk itself....

Nice, smaller change of pace from bigger and busier OC and Rehobeth boardwalks. Still plenty of shops, restaurants, and fun all in a walkable distance.

It's small but fun. Only a few blocks long the boardwalk centers around a new bandstand featuring good old fashioned entertainment. The best day is the Labor Day which features a New Orleans style funeral dirge celebrating the retirement of lifeguards and the official end to summer. A parade to honor the occasion takes place with ghoulish characters looking for... More
