A new pedestrian pathway was recently constructed in Bethany Beach along Collins Street, a portion of Kent Avenue and Wellington Parkway. While the project took approximately three months to be completed, many years of Bethany Beach Town Council discussions and subsequent planning were required to bring this new passageway for pedestrians and cyclists to life.

Bethany Beach Town Council Member Mickey Hinman is a strong advocate of the recently completed project, and he says this is just one of many steps he and other members of the town council hope will improve overall pedestrian safety in Bethany.

The recent improvements to the corridor allow cyclists and pedestrians to be separated from traffic, which

The summer season is upon us, and we have enjoyed seeing so many of you enjoying Bear Trap Dunes over the last few weeks! During the month of May, just 1 property went under contract in Bear Trap. This compares to 1 at the same time last year and 2 in May of 2022. While there is vulnerability in the market, the continuation of low inventory in Bear Trap has kept values elevated (currently there are no properties for sale in the community).

If you have any questions about the market in general or any specific property, please call our Bear Trap Expert:

The summer season is upon us, and we have enjoyed seeing so many of you enjoying the area over the last few weeks! During the month of May, 3 properties went under contract in the community of Bayside.   This compares to 4 properties at the same time last year, and 4 in May of 2022. There is some softening of values, particularly for single family homes where we have seen a notable rise in inventory (13 properties for sale vs. 6 at this time in 2023). However, there is still a plethora of buyers waiting for specific properties to be listed for sale, especially condos/townhomes where there are now 2 properties for sale, vs. 4 at this time last year.

Local summer produce is a huge component of what makes summers at the Delaware Beaches so remarkable!  Whether it's a seasonal dinner special at your favorite restaurant or spending the day with your family at one of many nearby farms, you're sure to be impressed by the delicious foods that are harvested locally.  The Southern Shore is flourishing with options when it comes to accessing locally grown produce at an affordable price.  Many farms in the area offer "you pick" days, where guests can pick blueberries, peaches, or whatever the farm specializes in.  Additionally, there are several Farmers' Markets in the area where you can purchase from multiple different farms in a one-top shoe, as well as flower vendors and more!  Just below is more
