Hit the beach

Heading off to a beach resort like Ocean City, Md., or Rehoboth Beach, Del.? There are so many choices that planning a trip can be daunting. Sure, you want to spend time dipping your toes in the ocean, but where do you stay and what do you do off the beach?

Ocean City, Md., has a trip-planning tool to help make the process easier. You can create an itinerary online that includes accommodations, as well as activities like concerts, and then see an interactive map that shows you the relative locations of everything you’ve selected. When you’ve finished you can print the itinerary and even share it on social media.

The trip planner icon is on the home page at ococean.com.

Ocean City continues to offer free family fun like movies on the beach, Family Beach Olympics, and Sunday “Beach Lights” shows that combine lasers, fireworks, music, and special effects. The popular Sundaes in the Park and Sunset Park Party Nights also continue this summer.

Southern Delaware’s beaches offer seasonal fun with activities ranging from art shows to kayak trips. The area also benefits from the entertainment options offered by venues, such as Freeman Stage and Clear Space Theatre, as well as the fantastic nature adventures at Cape Henlopen and Trap Pond State Parks.
