There’s still time to book a last-minute autumnal escape to Bethany Beach, Delaware, one of the East Coast’s most secretive havens. With nearly 120 years of absorbing history, Addy Sea remains a beacon of light for citizens of Philadelphia, Baltimore, D.C., and beyond. This historic oceanfront inn rests along the Atlantic Ocean’s powdery shores, where true serenity, heartwarming natural beauty, and aquatic adventure meld.

Perfect Weather and Fewer Crowds

As summer subtly shifts to fall, the Bethany Beach area sees much less foot traffic. However, couples hoping to recharge their batteries far away from the city’s hustle can still enjoy idyllic temperatures, refreshing sea breezes, pristine sand, and all the amenities that go hand in hand with our charming, nautical town. Fewer tourists equal added availability at restaurants, breathing room by the sea, and crowd-less attractions. Imagine a mid-day Bethany Beach Boardwalk stroll with your favorite guy or gal, entirely void of crowds, where the only sounds derive from the ocean and soaring birdlife. And it’s no secret that accommodation and flight rates dip during the “offseason.”
