Mini golf is a great summer activity!  Check out these great, local courses for some great, family fun:

Ryan’s Mini Golf.  You really can’t get better than rooftop mini golf right on the boardwalk in Rehoboth!  Directly Above Ryan’s Gems & Junk Shop you will find a mini golf course that is easy enough for kids, but fun for the whole family.  Decorated with loads of animal sculptures, this is a simple course, but it has the most amazing views of any mini golf course I’ve ever seen!  Prices are reasonable too, and they just opened a second course on the lower level, right on the boardwalk.  Just be forewarned that it is hot up on that roof in the middle of the day!

Jungle Jim’s.  Jungle Jim’s is more than just mini golf.  It also features a water park, bumper boats, batting cages, go-carts, and more!  It’s a little pricier than other mini-golf places around, but with water traps and other challenges it’s more fun too!  Jungle Jim’s is located at 36944 Country Club Road in Rehoboth.

Shell We Golf.  Shell We Golf might be the most famous golf course in Rehoboth since it’s so easily recognizable as you pass back and forth on Route 1.  This course is great to play when it’s hot out since there’s a lot of shade!  This is a mid-range course.  Fun for the whole family, but with some pretty simple holes to keep the attention of the little ones!  Shell We Golf is located at 19366 Coastal Highway in Rehoboth.

Fire Mountain Golf at Midway Speedway.  Midway Speedway is another one-stop summer sport fun-land!  This mini golf course is located beneath a volcano and is challenging and fun for everyone!  In addition to mini golf there are also go carts, water slides, bumper boats, a climbing wall, and a lazy river!  A day at Midway Speedway is fun for the whole family!  Midway Speedway is located at 18645 Coastal Highway in Rehoboth.

Long Neck Mini Golf.  If you’re looking for a fun game of golf but don’t want to fight the traffic into Rehoboth, check out Long Neck Mini Golf.  Set amidst beautiful gardens, Long Neck is my mini-golf course of choice!  The course is fun and challenging, but not too hard for the little ones.  Several holes have creative twists, like water hazards, second holes, etc. so it’s an all-around fun course!  Long Neck Mini Golf is located on Long Neck Road in Millsboro – you’ll know it when you see the huge crab on top of the waterfall!  There’s also a pizza place and ice cream parlor within walking distance if you want to make an afternoon of it!

Off season at the beach can be very relaxing.  If you’re looking for something to do in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area, check out the following activities:

1.  See a movie.  Check out Movies at Midway for a popular feature film, or check out rehobothfilm.com for a more artsy choice and schedule of events.

2.  Visit an Art Gallery.  Lewes and Rehoboth are both brimming with art galleries and many of them are open during the off season.  They are definitely worth a look.

3.  Visit Cape Henlopen State Park.  I know I keep going on and on about Cape Henlopen, but it’s seriously worth a visit!  Visit my previous post for more info.

4.  Shopping.  Route 1 through Rehoboth Beach is brimming with outlets that are much more pleasant to shop at when they aren’t filled with beach-going tourists.

5.  Walk on the beach or boardwalk.  Walking on the beach in the winter, when it is all yours to enjoy alone, is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.  If walking on the sand doesn’t thrill you, you can stroll the Rehoboth Boardwalk instead.  The view is equally lovely.

I can’t think of many family activities that shout SUMMER! more than mini-golf, and our area is chock full of mini golf courses.  Here are my top five to try:

Ryan’s Mini Golf.  You really can’t get better than rooftop mini golf right on the boardwalk in Rehoboth!  Directly Above Ryan’s Gems & Junk Shop you will find a mini golf course that is easy enough for kids, but fun for the whole family.  Decorated with loads of animal sculptures, this is a simple course, but it has the most amazing views of any mini golf course I’ve ever seen!  Prices are reasonable too.  Just be forewarned that it is hot up on that roof in the middle of the day!

Jungle Jim’sJungle Jim’s is more than just mini golf.  It also features a water park, bumper boats, batting cages, go-carts, and more!  It’s a little pricier than other mini-golf places around, but with water traps and other challenges it’s more fun too!  Jungle Jim’s is located at 36944 Country Club Road in Rehoboth.

Shell We Golf.  Shell We Golf might be the most famous golf course in Rehoboth since it’s so easily recognizable as you pass back and forth on Route 1.  This course is great to play when it’s hot out since there’s a lot of shade!  This is a mid-range course.  Fun for the whole family, but with some pretty simple holes to keep the attention of the little ones!  Shell We Golf is located at 19366 Coastal Highway in Rehoboth.

Fire Mountain Golf at Midway SpeedwayMidway Speedway is another one-stop summer sport fun-land!  This mini golf course is located beneath a volcano and is challenging and fun for everyone!  In addition to mini golf there are also go carts, water slides, bumper boats, a climbing wall, and a lazy river!  A day at Midway Speedway is fun for the whole family!  Midway Speedway is located at 18645 Coastal Highway in Rehoboth.

Long Neck Mini Golf.  If you’re looking for a fun game of golf but don’t want to fight the traffic into Rehoboth, check out Long Neck Mini Golf.  Set amidst beautiful gardens, Long Neck is my mini-golf course of choice!  The course is fun and challenging, but not too hard for the little ones.  Several holes have creative twists, like water hazards, second holes, etc. so it’s an all-around fun course!  Long Neck Mini Golf is located on Long Neck Road in Millsboro – you’ll know it when you see the huge crab on top of the waterfall!  There’s also a pizza place and ice cream parlor within walking distance if you want to make an afternoon of it!

Spotlight on Fort Miles

Fort Miles is/will be receiving a lot of attention in the coming days because a relic from World War II is currently making its way toward Fort Miles. The 16 inch gun headed to Cape Henlopen was part of the heavy weaponry on the battleship USS Missouri.

Fort Miles was a key piece of our nation’s coastal defense during World War II, and it is located in what is now Cape Henlopen State Park.  Fort Miles is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a great place to learn about the role of the Delaware shore during World War II.  Fort Miles is/will be receiving a lot of attention in the coming days because a relic from World War II is currently making its way toward Fort Miles.  The 16 inch gun headed to Cape Henlopen was part of the heavy weaponry on the battleship USS Missouri.  Although this exact gun was never at Fort Miles, it is similar to the two Army guns housed there, ready to defend the coastline should the need arise.  The gun is 66 feet long, weights a quarter of a million pounds, and could shoot a 1-ton shell around 23 miles!  This massive gun is set to arrive in Georgetown on Monday, April 16th and make its way to Cape Henlopen from there.  Nobody is exactly sure when the gun will arrive at Fort Miles, but in the meantime you can take a tour or participate in the interpretive program at Fort Miles.  The Orientation Building is open from 10am-4pm on Tuesday-Saturday.

In Sussex County, towns like Lewes and Rehoboth Beach get a lot of publicity, and for good reason, but the inland town of Millsboro is a great town as well!  Last time I was there, I had no idea where to eat so I took a chance and walked into the Blue Water Grill (226 Main Street).  And let me tell you, I’m so glad I took that chance.  It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

The atmosphere was laid-back and hip.  It was the kind of place that could be dressed up or down so that anyone would be comfortable.  You could throw on jeans and a t-shirt and bring the kids for a family meal, put on a suit and tie and bring your colleagues or customers for a business lunch, or dress up a little and come for date-night!

Atmosphere is great, but let’s talk food… that’s why you go to a restaurant in the first place, isn’t it?  Every bite of the food at Blue Water Grill was absolutely delicious.  I went for lunch with my husband and ordered the salmon sandwich.  I love salmon, and the sandwich did not disappoint, but it was the house horsey sauce that took it from yummy to Y-U-M-M-Y!  My husband had a burger and said it was one of the best burgers he’d ever had (and he LOVES burgers, so that’s high praise!).  Our entrees were delicious – even the fries were good, but it was our starter that left us wanting more.  The House Recipe Seafood Bisque was awesome!  I’m not exaggerating at all when I tell you that it was by far the best soup I’ve ever had.  We ordered a bowl to share, but we should’ve each ordered our own because we were practically fighting for the last spoonful.  I’m nearly drooling just thinking about it!

In case you couldn’t tell, I would highly recommend eating at the Blue Water Grill (you can check out their full menu here).  And while you’re in Millsboro you should look around a little bit; maybe you’ll decide it’s the perfect place for you.  If that’s the case, give us a call at Cooper Realty — 302-644-2266 and let us help you find your new home!

Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Delaware attracts thousands of visitors during the summer months when sunbathing, sand castle building, and swimming are prime activities for beach-goers.  But did you know that Cape Henlopen has a lot to offer in the winter months too?  Here are 5 great activities for all ages that can be done any time of year:

  1. Visit the Seaside Nature Center
    Open from 9am-4pm all year round, the Seaside Nature Center has many exhibits and displays, tanks full of local fish, and even a touch-tank!  It’s definitely worth a visit.
  2. Take a walk on the beach
    Who says the beach is only for summer?  Taking a winter walk along the beach is invigorating!  Not only can you enjoy different scenery than in the summer months, but there are no crowds to fight for it!  I can’t think of anything better than a relaxing stroll under sun, listening to the waves crash nearby.  So, what are you waiting for?  Bundle up and get out there!  There’s nothing more beautiful than a beach you have all to yourself.
  3. Hike or bike the trails
    There are 8 trails within Cape Henlopen, ranging from just over half a mile to 5 miles in length.  Some trails are designated for hiking only, but there are lovely, paved bike trails as well, and even an equestrian trail.  If you like to hike, you can even take part in the Delaware State Parks Trail Challenge – 3 of the trails are within Cape Henlopen!  If biking is more your thing, stop by the Seaside Nature Center (see #1!) to borrow a free bike from the Friends Park Pedal program and pedal around these beautiful trails!  If you want to check out the trails in advance, you can even download trail maps here.
  4. Check out one of the organized programs
    Cape Henlopen offers a wide variety of public programs for all different ages.  Many programs are family-friendly and some are even geared specifically for children!  Upcoming programs include a Winter Moon Hike, Awesome Amphibians, and a Youth Saltwater Tying Workshop.  Some events require a small fee, but most are free.  Pre-registration is often required, even for free events, so it’s best to call early and save your spot!  You can download the Spring 2012 program brochure here.
  5. Explore history
    Fort Miles was a key piece of our nation’s coastal defense during World War II, and it is located in what is now Cape Henlopen State Park.  Fort Miles is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a great place for families and history buffs alike!  So take a tour, participate in the interpretive program, and find out more about the role of the Delaware shore in World War II.  The Fort Miles Orientation Building is open from 10am-4pm on Fridays and Saturdays through the end of March.  Beginning it April is open from 10am-4pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays as well.

These activities are available year round, but why wait for the heat and the crowds to take advantage of them?  Head over to Cape Henlopen soon and discover what the beach has to offer in March!  When you do, you’ll see for yourself why we love Cape Henlopen and the town of Lewes so much.  If you decide to stay give us a call at Cooper Realty – 302-644-2266 and let us help you find your new home!
