Thanks to warmer temps, an uptick in off-season offerings and a strategic marketing plan, Delaware beaches are beginning to see quite the draw from tourists all year round.
Although swimsuits may not have been packed for this trip, many tourists enjoy not only the slew of festivals offered during the beach off-season, but also the surrounding shops and restaurants that cater to these visitors.
The dream of Delaware beaches becoming a hot spot all year round dates back to 1989 and the first Sea Witch Festival, a Halloween-themed event hosted by the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce. Since then several festivals focusing on anything from dogs to sand castles have popped up during the off-season, drawing visitors to these unique offerings.
Flash forward to today and Delaware beaches have become an enticing draw for tourists all year round. And local businesses and restaurants are more than welcoming to this new influx.
The Avenue is one such establishment that caters to area visitors and eager beachgoers all year round. Conveniently located one block from Rehoboth Beach and the boardwalk, The Avenue offers a peaceful and inviting sanctuary for out-of-town guests.
Unwind from everyday life and pamper yourself at The Avenue’s apothecary and spa featuring a variety of services, including massages, facials and nail services.
The Avenue is also sure to satisfy your cravings with a complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon and fresh baked cookies in the evening.
