travel tuesday : delaware beaches

"growing up, we spent every summer vacationing at one of the beaches in delaware, lewes and rehoboth being the favorites. lewes is perhaps the most beloved town in delaware. quiet and dignified, charming and friendly, a walking town where you can enjoy days at the beach, strolls on boutique filled streets and a relaxing meal by the water. 

rehoboth is one of the most popular beaches, with its easy, friendly charm and streets lined with colorful beach cottages, artsy boutiques and a boardwalk where the kids frolic at funland," shares jillian, minnow's head of customer service.
