Life in Slaughter Beach Homes for Sale
The origins of the name "Slaughter Beach" serves as a source of mystery and frequent debate among residents. But—whether or not it was named for the large number of horseshoe crabs that wash up on the shore and die, in honor of local postmaster William Slaughter, or for some other reason—the beach is beautiful and filled with wildlife. Unsurprisingly, the horseshoe crab has become the town's official symbol. Nature lovers, water enthusiasts, and bicyclists will find the most pleasure in this community.
And while everyone will enjoy the subdued and restful atmosphere of this beachy town, there are plenty of activities and sights to check out too. For instance, Slaughter Beach is home to the Milford Neck Wildlife Area, where people can participate in bird watching activities, particularly when birds flock to the beach to eat the eggs of horseshoe crabs. Everyone should also visit Mispillion Lighthouse, which is Delaware's only standing wooden framed lighthouse.
For all of the seclusion it offers, though, it can be easy to forget how close Slaughter Beach lies to the Coastal Highway and all the modern conveniences of the city of Milford, where you'll find plenty of retail and dining experiences should you and your family ever want a change of pace. With so much to do nearby, Slaughter Beach homes for sale make excellent, inexpensive launch pads for all your oceanside adventures.
