"Where the Living is easy; and the taxes easier!"

Some folks have asked me what does the Delaware coast look like; or does it really have a coast? The answer as you can see is a resounding, "yes." In fact, we have a very nice coast line that goes from our Henlopen State park for about 19 miles of park right up to Bethany Beach and includes the beaches at Lewes and Rehoboth, the summer playground for a lot of D.C. folks. Right now, the junior senator of the State, Carper, is trying to make it Delaware's first National State Park which would draw more attention to the pristine shore line and the Inland Bays that make this area such a big draw for fisherman and boaters. The interesting thing is that this area is very reminiscent of the eastern end of Long Island maybe twenty five years ago before the sprawl. It's still lots of farms and spread out development; but that, too, is changing as the developers discover the attractions of the area. Over the past five years, for example, many of the small towns around this part of the Delmarva peninsula have experienced accelerated growth of up to 300% or more and the trend line doesn't seem to let up. Lewes, the town that borders the ocean and the bay is the First State's first town and is a picture book setting of well kept homes, neat little shops and art galleries and restaurants along a canal that has been in operation since the 1600's. What's more, the area has attracted visitors who stay after they realize that it has all of the amenities and is yet convenient to the cities of Wilmington, Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC. A nice play to visit and a better place to live!Politics Blog Top Sites
