Living on the Delaware Coast

The communities of the Delaware coast are as varied as the people who call it home. Whether you're looking for excitement or serenity, you'll find it nearby. For instance, Dewey Beach is a small town with a permanent population of just 341, according to the 2010 Census. The town offers approximately 1/12 miles of beach front and covers 22 blocks. And Fenwick Island is another small coastal town with a permanent population of 379. Fenwick Island and the neighboring Bethany Beach areas are known as being the quieter resort locations. These are all great places for retirees or families looking to avoid crowds by living a little bit off the beaten path.

On the other hand, each summer Ocean City transforms into the second most populated municipality in Maryland, after Baltimore. And the small incorporated city of Rehoboth Beach has a population reported to be 1,327, but, during the summer months, the population increases to more than 25,000. And, similarly, Lewes, Delaware is an incorporated city surrounded by Gordon Pond and the Gordon Pond Wildlife area. In 2010, Lewes reported a population of 2,747, but again that population balloons when the weather gets nice. These areas are known for boardwalks with numerous activities during the tourist season, and they're great for anyone who wants to keep busy and loves to people watch.
