Things to do and see
Generation after generation, Bethany Beach continues to charm regulars by refusing to let go of its unhurried pace. There's much to do and see here, from tax-free shopping around town to the miniature Captain Jack's Pirate Golf course via a visit to the historic Fenwick Island Lighthouse.
Don't miss the Chief Little Owl totem pole, which depicts a Nanticoke Indian chief with a north-facing eagle on his head — it is considered Delaware's signature sculpture. Just three miles from the city centre is the impeccable Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club, lined with wetland grasses and stunning sand dunes.
For an educational family experience, visit the Bethany Beach Nature Centre. This spot houses interactive exhibits, aquariums, taxidermied animals, and live turtles, as well as freshwater and tidal wetlands. Following all this excitement, relax back at your sea-facing Bethany Beach holiday letting and recap the day's events.
Art and culture
Discover Delaware's history at the Zwaanendael Museum, at which exhibits span everything from the legacies of whaling to the War of 1812. The museum's building has been modeled on the ancient city hall in Hoorn in the Netherlands. For a dose of live music or cinema screenings in a romantic beach setting, Bethany Beach Bandstand does the trick! Book lovers should take note of the South Coastal Library, home to a fine collection of books for children and adults and a perfect rainy day option.

This family town pleases everyone from toddlers to grandparents, which perhaps explains the profusion of family reunions one finds here.
