homes are just a few of the options to choose from. The
local realtors offer services to assist you in finding the
ideal lodging for your stay.

vegetarian. The area is also well known for it's shopping
opportunities. There are many local artisans, as well as
factory outlets where you can really stretch your vacation

mile-long boardwalk. Many people come down just to walk the
boards and watch the ocean waves. You can also bike ride or
jog or just hang out and people-watch. If you are lucky
enough you can catch a glimpse of dolphins, porpoises, and
other wildlife, such as pelicans. Other activities which are
great for the kids as well as adults include arcades,
musical entertainment, miniature golf and the many festivals

For those of you who are into more natural surroundings,
there is Cape Henlopen State Park close by in Lewes,
Delaware The open shoreline of Cape Henlopen State Park is
perfectly suited for swimming, crabbing, fishing, walking or
just soaking up the sun. The highest sand dune between Cape
Hatteras and Cape Cod is located on this beach. This "great
dune" towers more than 80 feet above the shoreline.
There is a restored World War II Observation Tower, if you
are inclined, where the public is able to see the area from
a bird's eye view. The story behind the tower is
fascinating. Bird lovers will want to keep an eye out for
ospreys and hawks. The protected piping plover and bald
eagles have also been spotted occasionally.
