 1. If you are planning a beach vacation, you are going to visit the beach.  But, let me explain to you, there is a difference between the Lewes and Rehoboth Beaches,  Rehoboth Beach, is on the ocean.  You can have fun jumping or surfing the waves.  Lewes Beach, faces the bay.  There are no waves, which is great, if you have small children.   When visiting Rehoboth Beach, take a stroll on the boardwalk.  There are shops and their famous amusement park,  Funland.  Downtown Lewes is considered a historic district.  Filled with fantastic restaurants and shops, you will love it.

 2.  Lefty's Alley And Eats. in Lewes.  This amazing establishment combines bowling, food, and fun under one roof.  They have an arcade and laser tag too.  With a full bar and restaurant menu, this place does not offer your typical "bowling alley food", This is the place for families to enjoy themselves. Shoot each other in laser tag and win a few prizes at the arcade. While participating in a few games of bowling, you can have the waiter serve your dinner at your lane. Look for specials in the off season...they can be a money saver.

3.  Shell We Bounce is the ultimate trampoline park.  Not only do they offer fitness classes, but birthday parties too.  They have a virtual reality area and an arcade.  What I love, is that while your children are bouncing around, there are massage chairs upstairs. This allows parents to be able to keep an eye on their children, while getting a massage, They also have a snack bar with slices of pizza and hot dogs. Everyone can have fun...and it won't break the bank!

5.   Cape Henlopen State Park This is no ordinary state park.  Fantastic beach with bathrooms!    But, it is so much more than that. From bike trails to nature trails, this state park has it all.  But, I love the Cape Henlopen State Park Programs.  There are so many to choose from, and most are family-friendly, hands-on, learning experiences.  Before you visit, look up the schedule, and reserve the program of your choice.  You will have a blast! 

6.  Ship Carpenter Street Campus Did you know Delaware is the first state?  So why not visit a few historical sites while on vacation?  This is one of my favorites! Located in the heart of historic Lewes, This campus houses 9 buildings. It is a combination of historical buildings including a doctor's office from 1850 and one of the first schools built in 1898.  There is a self guided tour and you can enjoy the park like setting for free!
