I recently caught up with Adam "Ace" Moyer, the CEO and founder of Knockaround, a maker of sunglasses that offer inexpensive and relaxed shades, perfect for the beach. Moyer is a native of the Northern Virginia, and was relaxing in Bethany Beach when we caught up with him about the shades, their design and the future of the brand. Ace, you grew up in this area and your parents also have a beach house in Delaware. How has the mix of being near big cities like D.C. and Baltimore, as well as spending time at the beach, influenced your work as an artist and a designer?

The tax break they earned with a mortgage was gone. "That's when we decided that we'd be better off buying a second home," said Delores Wardwell. They settled on a cozy duplex priced at $190,000 near Bethany Beach, Del. The Wardwells are part of a new wave of consumers helping to make a hot real estate market even better by investing in vacation homes.
