Delaware was the best overall.

I certainly recall so much about my family's Dewey Beach years, when from June through September we left the Guilford Avenue rowhouse and lived in a wooden beach house built on a sand dune at the ocean end of Rodney Street. It all sounds romantic, and it was, quitting Baltimore for the Delaware shore and a then-little hamlet with nightly beach bonfires (no rules), no phones, no town water and swarms of mosquitoes.

For those who enjoy boardwalk frivolity and beach serenity in equal measure, Rehoboth Beach, even as its commercial appeal rapidly expands, remains a reliable vacation choice. Some visitors may choose to spend their days reading on the beach and evenings playing Scrabble on the screened porch of a rental home.
