When it comes to heading “downashore” — local vernacular for a drivable beach vacation — Philadelphians have two distinct beach destinations within a reach. The first and decidedly more familiar is the expansive coastline of New Jersey, where summertime revelers can opt for over-the-top Atlantic City or head for more peaceful enclaves like Long Beach Island. A bit farther down the Atlantic, the beaches along the Delaware coastline — which include Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, South Bethany, and Fenwick Island — are summertime destinations with characters all their own. Delaware’s beach towns share a similar drive time to the Jersey shore, but have a decidedly more laid back vibe and some truly noteworthy dining destinations.
