Bethany Beach

A couple weeks ago, for Father's Day, I went up to Bethany Beach, DE with my family. It was great to just chill out with the fam for a weekend.

Bethany Beach is a place I grew up at, I have been going my entire life. My Dad's family has owned a beach house there since the 60's--so I basically grew up going to Bethany Beach.

My Grandma recently passed away last fall, thus leaving the house to my Dad and his sister. Which is kind of exciting (not the fact my Grandma died... lol), because now we can do whatever we want to the house! The house is so dated and I just want to go all out and completely remodel everything, which obviously is going to take some time.

Anyways this post is not going to be about redecorating the beach house. Instead I wanted to talk about some of my favorite things to do there when we go! Since I have been going there for the past 20 years of my life, I figured I am a fairly qualified person to give some recommendations. So, if you ever find yourself in a tiny little beach town in Delaware called Bethany Beach you will know what to do!

Fisher's Popcorn
I am actually not the biggest popcorn fan, but there is an exception for everything. We have to stop by Fisher's overtime we are in town. If you go get their caramel corn and only their caramel corn. There is literally no caramel corn like Fisher's around. Even their motto is "Ours just tastes better!" It is so true.

Bethany Beach Bakery
When I was little I used to go here every morning with my Dad to pick up donuts for breakfast. While, we no longer go every morning we are in town--as I can no longer allow myself to eat donuts multiple days in a row. It still is a family favorite place to pick up donuts. Note: If you go, you must go early because they do run out of donuts.

Grotto Pizza
Grotto's is a local chain with good pizza. Enough said.

Bethany Beach Books
I am a sucker for independent bookstores and this one I have been going to all my life. It's an awesome little bookstore to browse around for a good beach read. I actually love this place and have looked forward to going here ever since I was little.

Japanesque is a cute little Japanese store in the middle of Bethany. They have tons of fun imported Asian things and my favorite when I was little, an entire corner decked out in Hello Kitty gear.

Fish Tales 
I used to love going here as a kid because, again, they had an entire Hello Kitty section as well as a really awesome toy section in the back. But more recently I have enjoyed going here because I have discovered they carry a lot of "preppy" brands. For example they have Vineyard Vines, Southern Proper, Southern Tide, Krass & Co, Sloane Ranger, & Lilly Pulitzer stationary type things.

Those are just a few of my favorite places to visit when I go to Bethany! Bethany Beach will always have a special place in my heart, as a grew up there. My family loves it because it's a quiet little family friendly beach town, it isn't "party city" at all like many East Coast beaches are known for.

Thanks for reading!!
