Del. Beaches Want You

Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches are ready for visitors.

Beach resorts in Delaware are looking for a rebound after the damage caused by Superstorm Sandy and as the economy improves.

Carol Everhart of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce tells The News Journal they saw a 20 percent increase in requests for information between January and April.

Based on early bookings, Delaware Tourism Office Director Linda Parkowski says resorts are hoping for a 25 percent increase in travel to Delaware this summer.

“It’s definitely the kind of year where it’s best to book sooner rather than later,” Parkowski told the paper. “The economy’s improving, and people are ready to splurge a little. We also find that each year, more people discover Delaware and are more willing to travel to get here.”

But Jack Lingo Realty in Rehoboth Beach, which often caters to Washington-area travelers, says it has not seen any uptick in rentals for beach houses this summer.
