No matter what season you decide to visit during, there are plenty of events and attractions to make your vacation memorable.
The beaches on the Atlantic Coast are a huge draw for vacationers because of the state’s pristine beaches and quaint beach side towns. Once it really starts to get warm outside, the visitors really appear and help make Delaware a popular, fun place to spend time. If you plan a summer vacation seaside, be sure to book a Southern Delaware beach hotel well in advance, because they fill up quickly. A popular spot is Rehoboth Beach, where vacationers and tourists can swim and recreate in the sun, as well as shop and dine in this great town.
Expect beach crowds as well as increased hotel rates during the summer months. If you want to experience the coastal towns and beaches while it’s still warm, but less crowded, plan your trip during the fall or spring times. Travel and hotels are a bit cheaper during these months, and beaches, stores and restaurants are less busy.
Because Delaware is almost a northern state, it can get cold during the winter months. Northern Delaware has more opportunities for winter-related activities, such as sledding, sleigh rides, skiing and ice skating. Northern Hills in Delaware attract crowds during the winter. The state offers plenty of attractions and event during the winter months. The same rules apply, however. If you want to book your vacation for a particular time of the year, be sure to plan ahead. Hotels book just as fast in the winter as they do during the summer.
Fall is a great time for leaf-peeping in Delaware. Watching the leaves change color and fall, and experiencing nature in all its glory, can’t be beat. Aside from visiting the vast beaches of Delaware, visitors can also attend summer festivals and fairs, such as the Delaware State Fair, which takes place every year in July.
Christmastime in Delaware is lovely as well. Seeing historic homes and neighborhoods decked for the holidays is always an enjoyable experience. There are hosts of charming bed and breakfasts peppered throughout the state, which make for great lodgings for any vacationer.
Just be sure to book ahead to get the most out of your next Delaware vacation!
