Not too far from the chaos of Ocean City lies the gorgeous Rt. 54 also known as Lighthouse road. A few really great restaurants are set up right on the water and the Lobster Shanty is definitely a gem on the marsh. I had the pleasure of working at The Shanty last summer and besides having the best job at the restaurant of running the parking lot and working valet, which allowed me to relax and talk to patrons outside, I got to sample the food and have a few drinks there myself. The menu is frankly stacked.

If the Dew Tour has put you in the mood to try something a little more extreme than your usual beach routine, Michelle Sommers has just the thing. Sommers is giving women the opportunity to check off learning how to surf from their bucket list with lessons specifically tailored to them. The Fenwick Island resident said she began offering the lessons because surfing is a male-dominated sport and that can sometimes makes women feel intimidated. "I think women feel more comfortable with other women teaching them because we are close in age and understand similar fears," says Sommers, adding that lessons with a woman can take away the intimidation factor.

Snowboarding is a sport synonymous with cold weather. But what about the boarders who just say "no" to snow? For them, summer lasts all year long -- even when temperatures fall. Hardcore surfers suit up, paddle out and catch waves in the dead of winter and in early spring, when the white powder just won't do. Winter surf spots Cape May, N.J. -- Long Beach Island, N.J. -- Ocean City, N.J. -- Fenwick Island, Del. -- Indian River Inlet, Del. -- Ocean City (48th Street for more serious surfers, 30th Street for beginners)

Go here: Bethany Beach is part of the "Quiet Resorts," a seven-mile stretch of beaches including South Bethany and Fenwick Island, just north of Ocean City. Thanks to a beach replenishment project, there's more sand than ever for lounging, but there's also swimming, fishing, surfing, sailing and raft-riding. The boardwalk is lined with shops, restaurants, bars and video arcades, and Captain Jack's Pirate Golf mini-golf course is just two blocks away. Its proximity to Ocean City makes it a popular destination for high school graduates in the spring, so be wary of large crowds in May and June.

Many summer resorts boast spectacular beaches and a vast array of fabulous accommodations. So what distinguishes one beach town from another? Along coastal Delaware, it's the indigenous flavors that set it apart from its sand-strewn neighbors to the north and south. This season, go beyond those cookie-cutter chain restaurants and pizza dives - and indulge in the most savory sips and bites at the beach. Along with some revamped favorites, we've uncovered delectable new destinations for haute cuisine, homegrown produce and seafood, locally brewed and distilled libations, markets and food tours.

If the courtyard that greets visitors to Denny and Cindi Mather's beach home in Fenwick Island, Del., looks like the entrance to a motel, that's because it once was. The walled courtyard with foliage, fountain and an arched wrought-iron gate that opens to the road was there when the couple purchased the Sea Charm Motel and the property it sat on in 2008. They purchased the former motel with the intent to tear it down and build their dream home. Since they wanted to build a home larger than what would have been permitted on a vacant commercial lot, they had to keep part of the motel to satisfy the variances.
