Fenwick Island

The population dwindles during the off-season, but with its proximity to Ocean City, Md., and restaurants on Del. 54, things stay lively. A slew of newish good restaurants adds to a dining scene formerly defined by the excellent Nantuckets, Mancini’s, Oceanside Pizza, the Dairy Queen and a handful of other landmark places. Almost every house on the bay side of Del. 1 fronts the water. Owners hope recent beach replenishment keeps oceanfront homes safe from Sandy-sized storms. Looking for laid-back? Head to the incorporated northern end of town. The unincorporated end abutting Ocean City is palpably busier.
