Sand, Sun and Fun: Best Delaware Beaches

New townhomes in Delaware: Less than 2 hours to beach paradise

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, and Delaware’s many beautiful beaches beckon with promises of sea, sand, sun, and tons of boardwalk fun. The Montchanin Builders strategically located their one-of-a-kind master planned community at Darley Green in the Claymont Renaissance District, where residents have easy access to multiple recreational, cultural, and getaway destinations. Only minutes from I-95, Darley Green homeowners are instantly connected to the main artery of the Northeast Corridor: 20 minutes to Philadelphia, an hour to Baltimore, and 2 hours to New York City.

One of the major advantages to purchasing new homes in Delaware(outside of having no sales tax!) is proximity to some of the nations’ top-rated beach destinations. And during the months from spring to fall, Darley Green residents are less than 2 hours by car from Delaware’s top-rated beaches and coastal attractions. From the family-friendly Rehoboth Beach, to one of the country’s best “secret beaches” (as rated by Travel + Leisure Magazine) in Bethany Beach, Delaware’s shoreline offers miles of sand, and a plentiful array of shopping, nightlife, dining, and activities for everyone to enjoy.

It all adds up to the perfect summer retreat for singles, couples, families, and retirees alike. See why Delaware livingcan’t be matched when you visit these top beach destinations:
