Bethany Beach

One of the so-called Quiet Resorts, the former Methodist camp town retains its family atmosphere. Less of a year-round town than its larger cousin, Rehoboth Beach, it still offers many of the same attractions: great restaurants like Patsy’s, 14 Global and The Parkway; a main drag, Garfield Parkway, lined with fun shops; and a beach and boardwalk—all in an easily walkable town. Annual celebrations like July 4 and the end-of-summer Jazz Funeral keep the civic spirit high.
