Beach Getaways 2011
Comments () | Published May 31, 2011

From the lively boardwalk town of Rehoboth to pristine Assateague Island to family-friendly Bethany Beach, here's where to find the perfect stretch of sand.

Assateague and Chincoteague Islands

Enjoy nature up close with wild ponies and unspoiled beaches.

Cape May

Not many shore towns offer carriage rides, Victorian inns, and top-notch dining.

Dogfish Head Beer Package

Ice cold brews await in Lewes, Deleware.

Rehoboth Beach

With its mile-long boardwalk and relaxed attitude, Rehoboth is a popular beach town.

Bethany Beach

Known as the quiet resort, Bethany Beach has mostly secret charms—including cool fireworks and fine food

Smith Island

The only way to get to Smith Island is by boat. Once there, you may have the beaches and seashells all to yourself.
