Explore Delaware Seashore State Park During Your Dewey Beach Vacation

family hiking vacationWhen it comes to family vacations, there is nothing that we love more than the opportunity they provide to get out and enjoy the warm weather and sunshine! After spending most of your days cooped up at the office, it feels great to stretch your legs and take in some fresh air while experiencing a beautiful, coastal view.

If your family is planning to bring your annual vacation to Dewey Beach this year, there is no better place to go exploring than nearby Delaware Seashore State Park.

Located just a ten minute drive from Atlantic View Hotel, the park has trails to hike, bike and even ride on horseback. There are also a myriad of kid-friendly activities taking place every day.

Whether your group is interested in trying their hand at surf fishing or would like to learn the ins and outs of grilling a fish, there is a hands-on activity to partake in. Have a history buff in your family? There are hiking tours that delve into local history and legend. Looking to do some crafting? You can make sea glass jewelry, wreaths and more at the park’s Indian River Life-Saving Station Museum. Projects change seasonally, and there are options for children of all ages.

Boat rentals are available nearby for families looking to spend some time out on the ocean, and there are more than six miles of shoreline to splash around and build sandcastles on.

We recommend spreading out a beach blanket, grabbing a snack and watching surfers ride the waves just north of the inlet.

Regardless of how you spend your day at Delaware Seashore State Park, it is sure to be a memorable one for the entire family! Lifeguards are on duty from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Thinking ahead to a spring or summer vacation in Dewey Beach? Plan your trip early and book your stay at Atlantic View Hotel.

We look forward to sharing our ocean view with you!
