There are pretty much two kinds of people in Southern Delaware: beach people and non-beach people. I am a beach person who married a non-beach person, and we are raising two teenagers: one of each. My daughter and I will often slip off to the beach for a few hours in the morning and then come home to our boys to do something fun. Whether crabbing the Indian River with PopPop, tubing on Red Mill Pond, fishing at the Cape Henlopen State Park pier, or walking one of the trails, there's always non-beach adventures for us!  We feel privileged to live in an area that gives us so many opportunities to enjoy natural beauty... even for non-beach people!

On July 4th, my boyfriend had a rare day off so we went for a "Sunday drive" on a Thursday!  We took Route 9 Coastal Heritage Scenic Byway from Milford to Delaware City, we stopped at Woodland Beach and Augustine Beach along the way.  We ate lunch on the waterfront in Delaware City and walked around their historic town. It was very hot so we passed on taking the ferry to Pea Patch Island that day but it's a day trip in the future!

After a busy day as a rental Realtor, I love picking up something “to go” to recover and unwind from a hectic day. My number one choice; Touch of Italy - perhaps the most authentic Italian restaurant in Sussex County! I love the Rehoboth location on Coastal Highway near our office since it is right on my way home and it never disappoints! Eat-in or “take out” but either way, it’s the amazing food and exceptional service that brings guests back year after year. My favorite is the POLLO ALLA PARMIGIANA – SPECIALITA`DELLA CASA; it’s chicken parmesan in a succulent tomato sauce and the portions are large enough for two. In a hurry or just yearning for some great Italian treats? I recommend Touch of Italy!

My husband and I enjoy the great outdoors in Delaware with our 2 children! In a fast paced industry it is always nice to slow down and enjoy the best times of all - the memories you make with your children. We love to camp in all of the Delaware State Parks, but one of our favorites is actually in our own back yard. The Cape Henlopen State Park has so much to do and almost all of it is included with your entrance fee! There are miles upon miles of bike trails, complete with the Great Dune Trail that connects Lewes and Rehoboth, several World War II towers, bunkers, and lookouts that you can view. One tower allows you to go inside and from the top and see a spectacular 360 view of the Cape Henlopen point. One of our kids' favorites places to explore is the nature center and trail where you can see horseshoe crabs and sting rays being fed by park staff, learn about local fish, turtles, and snakes in the aquariums. After that you can go walk the nature center trail down to the beach while looking for shells and sea glass and enjoying wildlife like eagles and hawks in their natural habitat.

We often enjoy the delicious BBQ chicken at the Greenwood Chicken on Saturdays. This is located near intersection of RT 13 and RT 16, Greenwood DE. They're open weekends and BBQ can be smelled all over town!  On my last visit, Bruce Herman of Herman's Financial Service in Milford was serving food with the Lion's Club. A platter includes BBQ chicken, chips, Pickles, and a Dinner Roll. Get there early because they sell out fast!

Located in Felton, Delaware about 45 minutes from the beach this State Park offers a family friendly waterpark at a bargain price. We paid $4.00 to enter the park, $8.00 each for myself and my daughter. The waterpark has great slides and the pool is large! The concession stand actually had a few healthy (not fried) options. After enjoying the water park we walked through the nature center and stumbled upon pedal boats rentals. We choose to rent the boat for an hour and couldn’t believe how peaceful it was to pedal around Killen’s pond watching others have fun in canoes and paddle boards.

A fun filled inexpensive day outside! We stopped at a great produce stand on our way back home and ate fresh tomatoes and farm corn with dinner!

“I have spent the last couple of weeks training at Kal-El CrossFit in Milton (located behind the Food Lion shopping center) and am participating in their 6-week fitness challenge! This particular challenge gives me unlimited access to the gym and the 1-hour group sessions led by the very enthusiastic trainers. Regardless of where you are on the fitness journey, or what goals you’re trying to achieve, everyone here is encouraging and supportive - we're a community. Brett Gibson and Wendy Gibson do an awesome job at pushing me to new limits and critiquing things such as form, body movement, etc. I’m looking forward to seeing my progress at the end of this challenge. Kal-El always offers your first session for free so you can experience first-hand how to build a better you!”

My husband Pete and I are avid fishers! We have lived in Milton for 15 years and love to be outdoors. We enjoy fishing the Broadkill River, which can be entered thru the ramp in Milton, and goes all the way to the Lewes Canal. Good fishing can also be found at the Indian River Inlet, Nanticoke River, Massey's Ditch, Lewes Canal, and Broadkill and Slaughter beaches. Different times of the year provide for different species of fish. Pete recently caught a Striped Bass in the Indian River!
