South Bethany Beach, Delaware
Self-proclaimed as “The best little beach in Delaware,” South Bethany Beach is part of what is known as the “Quiet Resorts.” As the name suggests, this town provides tourists with a relaxed and peaceful vacation destination within reach of the nightlife of Dewey Beach, local parks, and nearby beach towns such as Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, and Rehoboth Beach.
Purchased by Richard F. Hall and his wife in 1953, the 130-acre parcel was part of a plan to develop the marshland into fingers of land outlined by 5 canals. These would become house plots that would speckle the area, providing almost every home with a waterfront view. During the next half century, the area grew and now appeals to vacationing families from all across the country searching for quiet beach living.
