Fantastic County
Southern Delaware is among the top resort vacation destinations in the Mid- Atlantic region with miles of clean, sandy beaches, bays and waterways, tax-free shopping and mild temperatures year- round, and as they say... location, location, location! Sussex County is within a two-
hour drive of metro areas such as Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, and only four hours to New York City and Richmond, VA. Thousands visit here each year, as our beach resorts are often referred to as “The Nation’s Summer Capital.”
