Dear Delaware Forum:
I am hoping to find a Delaware beach destination that can accommodate a mini-family reunion (12 people) that we are having on July 4-8, 2012. Were were hoping to rent a 6-bedroom house, but are learning that most houses (especially on a peak weekend) require that you check-in and check-out on a Saturday, which we won't be able to do. So now we're thinking of looking for a resort or hotel that would allow us to stay for 4 nights. We are coming from all around the US -- DC, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, and Fargo, ND. We'd like to be somewhat near a major airport. (Will the traffic be too bad to tackle on July 4-8 to try to get to Delaware from one of the major DC airports)? We have a reasonable budget, but don't want to spend a huge sum on this short trip. Thank you for any advice you may have. We have not been to Delaware for a vacation before.
