The Fall Season in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware….

As much as I enjoy Summer at the Beaches in Delaware and hate to see it end, Fall brings many new joys. Indian Summer always brings warm, clear days and cool “Sweater Weather” nights. It also brings some of the greatest Striped Bass and Blue fishing in the world!! Whether you surf fish from the beach, or troll the Indian River Inlet and Rehoboth Bay waters, you are sure to have a lot of fun! Not a fisherman/fisherwoman?…..Fall also means many other types of fun to be had in Lewes/Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival is always a big attraction and a chance to listen to some very talented musicians. Another annual event is The Sea Witch Festival. If you’ve never been to The Sea Witch Festival, you don’t know what you’re missing. Have you ever seen pumpkins flying through the air? If not, make plans to attend the annual Punkin Chunkin in Bridgeville, Delaware. People come from all over the country to compete and see how far they can shoot a pumpkin out of a cannon or catapult one through the air. All of the contestants design and build their own machinery for this event. It’s very exciting to watch!!
So, come on down to enjoy Fall in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Bridgeville, Delaware. It’s also a great time to partake in the fine dining restaurants in the area. They are less crowded than in the Summer. Hope to see you soon!!
