DAY TRIPS

Assateague Island - Only a half hour away, part being a State Park and the other being Assateague Island National Seashore. There's fabulous beaches and wild ponies at both! In the National Park area there's even a 14 mile section to drive on (with the appropriate park pass & equipment of course). It's actually one of Jess & Mike's all time favorite things to do.

Ocean City Boardwalk - This is one of those places you just have to experience. The almost 30 blocks of food, shops, games, amusement rides and a wide array of people to watch is pretty impressive. If you're into a bit of nostalgia and cool area history take a walk through the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum down in the inlet. Fudge from Candy Kitchen, Fisher's Popcorn and Thrasher's Fries are legends in their own right & not to be skipped under any circumstances. While you're on the boards keep your eyes peeled for George & Barb, they enjoy an evening stroll there regularly.

Delaware Beaches: Consisting of Fenwick Island, Bethany, Dewey, Rehoboth and Lewes there's something for everyone and are all within an hour or so drive. Fenwick neighbors OC and is pretty small. Definitely stop in at The Seaside Country Store (it's a whole lot of country & a whole lot more). We get a lot of our Christmas shopping done there each year, but do go early as they close for the off season. If you're hungry try out the new Ropewalk restaurant, it's getting rave reviews. Three sets of Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth, as well as a huge selection of shopping on Main Street, will satisfy even the most seasoned shopper. There's also a nice boardwalk (although not as big as OC's). Make time to hit up some of the area bars and nightlife too. Purple Parrot is always a great time & having a beer at Dogfish Head Restaurant is just right to chill out and catch your breath. A few miles up the road is downtown Lewes, which is very quaint with lovely historic buildings, several antique stores, boutique shops and nice restaurants. While you're there make an appointment to be pampered at the Ocean Retreat Day Spa (ask for Panda - she's wonderful & a dear friend of ours). Then, head around the corner to Cape Henlopen State Park & Fort Miles to explore some interesting historical spots (there's big cannons and even a real look out tower to climb, so it's hands on history not the boring stuffy kind). The Cape May-Lewes Ferry is located right there as well and makes for a relaxing day trip over to the NJ beach of Cape May (which is a sweet little town too). About 15 minutes away is Bethany, with the small boardwalk and beach to match, it's a perfect place for families. Lastly there's Dewey, and anyone who knows anything about it knows this is the place to be for a good time. The Bottle & Cork regularly host local bands as well as big name performers; Coheed & Cambria, George Clinton, Andy Grammer and Kellie Pickler played last summer. We saw Citizen Cope there a few years ago and had a blast.

Historic Annapolis - The capitol of Maryland, home to the US Naval Academy and State House, has a wonderful downtown area filled with lots to do and see. It's about 1 & 1/2 hours from here. Hang out at the City Docks and watch the boats on Ego Alley. Chow down at any of the delightful restaurants. We love the sushi at Tsunami. Enjoy a drink at one of the many bars - McGarvey'sMiddleton's and Rams Head are all notable choices for the true Naptown experience. You can shop to your hearts content in cheeky boutique stores lining the brick sidewalks. Don't miss the fabulous clothes at Brown Eyed Girl or the beautifully unique artwork by local artist Nancy Hammond. There are also a variety of festivals & events that go on year round. It's an easy place to spend an entire day and well worth the drive across the bridge (just be careful on Fridays and Sundays during the summer beach traffic - check the live feed traffic cams here before you hit the road). 

Kent Island - Bar hopping around the Kent Narrows is pretty much a summertime standard. Ask anyone who lives there about "Sunday Funday" and you'll get a variety of colorful stories (we may or may not have a few ourselves...).  The true dock bar experience includes Red Eyes, Crab Deck and The Jetty, all of which are within stumbling distance of each other. You'll probably want to grab a hotel room for the night and The Hilton Garden Inn is right on the water next to the Jetty. Do pay the extra money for a balcony room because the Chesapeake Bay views are priceless. For fine dining there's The Narrows Restaurant where the food is beyond excellent (it's pricey and worth every penny)! Or you can always opt for a quieter time and take a little stroll through historic Stevensville, then grab a bite to eat at Rustico on their outdoor patio.
