If you’re in need of a sandy destination, Delaware has plenty to offer when it comes to relaxing on a picturesque beach. Plan your day trip around one of many amazing beaches in Delaware and explore any of the surrounding towns, each containing multiple ways to unwind and take in the fresh air. Enjoy the quaint and charming town of Lewes while appreciating the soft, white sand along the water—or visit the vibrant and incredible Dewey Beach for a youthful and lively atmosphere. If you enjoy popular boardwalks and shops within walking distance to the water, Rehoboth Beach is perfect for you. Each and every beach throughout Delaware makes for the perfect day trip with all sorts of things to do, from visiting unique beach boutiques to relaxing by the blue waves all day—the choice is yours, and the water awaits. 

The possibilities of enjoying the beach life range from all ends of the spectrum in Delaware, and regardless of which beach you may end up at—there’s no doubt you’ll want to turn your day trip into a much longer stay. 

See the Sights

Known as the “First State”, Delaware is full of breathtaking sights, unique entertainment and interesting history to be seen and discovered during your day trip. Stop by the Nemours Estate and the Winterthur Museum and Gardens for a beautiful history lesson and sight-seeing experience. For the shopaholics, there are multiple tax-free outlet malls to enjoy in Rehoboth Beach, as well as local boutiques and malls throughout the entire state to make your day trip a shopping experience you won’t regret. If you’re looking for an adventure, visit Lewes and hop on the Cape Water Tours boat to see dolphins and whales in their natural habitat. For natural beauty that isn’t as crowded as most Delaware beaches, check out Fenwick Island for a gorgeous beach and convenient state park close by with plenty of family fun. Wherever your Delaware day trip takes you, there are many things to see, learn, and discover during your short time—you might just have to stay longer!

Indulge in Local Eats and Treats

Finding one-of-a-kind, delicious food spots on a day trip is essential—luckily, Delaware has nearly endless possibilities when it comes to incredible dining experiences. Start your day trip off the caffeinated way with dozens of local coffee shops throughout the entire state, as well as amazing bakeries filling the towns—including Bing's Bakery and The Fractured Prune. For lunch, all of Delaware's towns and cities offer an array of spots, from hidden gems to popular restaurants—you’ll have no problem finding the best lunch you’ve ever had, from Newark to Wilmington to beach towns and beyond. 

Unwind at the end of your day trip and choose from an abundance of options for dinner from staple restaurants across the entire state. Enjoy a classic Italian dinner at Mrs. Robinos in Wilmington, or stop by Henlopen City Oyster House in Rehoboth Beach for an ultimate fresh seafood dinner.
