The Jersey Shore is still struggling to recover from the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. Now there is concern that Washington’s sequestration may slow or halt the disaster relief funds New Jersey mayors are counting on to rebuild their resort communities in time for the start of beach season. Vacationers needn’t worry about losing a summer at the shore. Just a short hop south of Cape May, on the other side of Delaware Bay, Delaware beach communities are sweeping the sand off the boardwalks and getting ready for the start of the spring and summer vacation seasons.
Spared Sandy’s wrath, Delaware Shores offer East Coast residents attractive vacation options that are conveniently close to home. Nationally renowned for its coastal bird and wildlife sanctuaries, Delaware’s Atlantic shore is dotted with charming beach towns, beautiful beaches and shady woods that invite vacationers to kick back and relax.
During the annual spring migration in April and May, birders flock to Bombay Hook and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuges and Great Marsh Preserve to observe the spring migration. A major stop on the famed Atlantic Flyway, millions of birds pass through the area to rest and refuel before continuing their journey north. In late May, an estimated half million Red Knots, Sanderlings, Ruddy Turnstones and Sandpipers arrive in Bombay Hook to feast on Horseshoe Crab eggs.
Delaware Shores vacation rentals in Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach offer spring birders and nature lovers a comfortable home to return to after a long day spent tracking down an elusive warbler or biking along pleasant wooded trails to admire spring flowers in bloom. Summer will bring myriad festivals and special events to this popular resort area, but a Delaware Shores vacation in spring is an unforgettable delight.
