Being a Tourist In: Bethany Beach

Hi again, I hope you had a great week!  Today, I’m doing a post about a place very special to my heart; Bethany Beach, Delaware.  My grandparents moved there a couple months ago, so I’ve been able to spend almost every weekend at the beach this summer and I’m loving it!  Let me know if you’ve ever visited!  Throughout this post, I’m going to go through a couple of my favorite places to hang out when I’m there… Enjoy!

The first thing I always do when I get to Bethany is jump in the pool!  I don’t have a pool at my house, so the fact that my Mommom and Poppop have a pool is AMAZING.  Also, it’s a nice perk to have when you come back from the beach and are covered in sand!  I bought this blow-up float at a store on the boardwalk and I could not be happier with it.  It was inexpensive and it’s so cute and perfect for floating around the pool on a hot day!

Another thing I like to do when I visit is go to places that aren’t available where I live.  Two places in particular – the Fractured Prune and the Juice Box – are really close to my grandparent’s house and super easy to stop at on the way to or from the beach!  The Fractured Prune is a donut shop where you basically create your own donuts from scratch!  You choose the glaze and toppings you want and it’s such a cool experience!  The Juice Box is a little juice shop on the side of the road where they serve fresh squeezed juice!  They offer a nice variety of very healthy juices to balance out those donuts. 🙂

Lastly, I love to go to the beach at sunset and just walk on the sand and put my feet in the water.  If you go to places like Delaware Seashore State Park or Fenwick Island (which are both within ten minutes of Bethany), it’s a lot less crowded than it usually is right at Bethany Beach, which gives you more privacy.  Doing this is so relaxing, especially if you’ve spent all day running around, and let’s you wind down surrounded by the sound of the waves.

Thanks for reading this post and let me know what you’d like to read about next week!  See you later!
