Ferry, offering a little extra interest en route to Cape May, which has a variety of bike trails, canoe, and kayak rentals, and other outlets for youthful energy. Fenwick Island also attracts many families across multiple generations, who go there for the family-friendly dining, amusement parks, and water rides.
For Mom and Dad, a Delaware timeshare can also offers rewarding shopping experiences. Tangier Outlets' brand name stores are tax-free in Delaware, letting vacationers shop ‘til they drop without spending as much money as back home. Lewes Beach's Second Street is a quieter, more laid back place to shop but its artsy and unique boutiques provide something for everyone. And for an evening on the town, Dewey Beach's youthful vibes and party scenes are matched only by spectacular views of the bay. If you are looking for the nightlife in Delaware, this is the place to be.
Surprising Arts and Culture
In addition to the beaches and beach destinations, a Delaware timeshare can also open you to its well-known arts and cultural venues, some of which have their origins in the wealthy elites of 19th century America. Winterthur Museum and Gardens was built by Henry Francis du Pont as a showcase for his extensive collection of decorative art and antiques. Inside, 175 rooms are designed to reflect their chosen eras to the finest detail and outside, the grounds stretch for a thousand acres of ferny woodland, a children's fairy garden, and botanical gardens that are designed to bloom from early spring through late fall. The Du Pont family also provides the origin of the Hagley Museum and Library, which features vintage vehicles such as an authentic Conestoga Wagon.
Delaware's natural beauty is another attractive feature for many visitors. Cape Henlopen State Park is home to "The Point," a lighthouse that has been a centerpiece to many iconic photographs of the Delaware seashore. You can do many things here, sunbathe, fish, and swim outside in a more natural setting than on the more developed beaches, or walk and ride bicycles through wildflower-strewn paths winding along the dunes and wetlands.
Best Time to Visit
If you are wondering when to take your Delaware timeshare vacation, you'll want to carefully consider when you go as temperatures and the number of vacationers will vary dramatically from one season to the next. Due to the popularity of the beaches and outdoor attractions, the summer months of June through August are the peak season for tourism. There is a slight shoulder season from the end of March through May, then the tourism numbers dip to their lowest levels for the slow season from September through to March. If you don't mind the cooler weather or plan on spending your time at some of Delaware's indoor attractions, then you will find fewer crowds during those months.
