‪Police Racket‬
‪יולי 2021‬
‪There may be no sales tax in Delaware but these little coastal town extract their revenue through their police departments by setting up speed traps and collecting parking fines. We stayed for a week in Bethany Beach and saw numerous speed traps and flashing lights of traffic stops. The police is constantly out hunting for tourist dollars in their money-making 25mph zones. We live in a much larger town and it is a rarity to see a police car there, let alone one that has pulled somebody over. We got lucky and were never actually stopped but seeing this legalized harassment of other drivers created a very unpleasant impression of always being a target and always being watched, which is not what I want to feel on my vacation. In addition, the entire town is devoid of even a single free parking spot and the legal parking spots are artificially severely restricted and patrolled by an army of parking enforcement agents at all hours of the day and night. Not a single street in the entire town allows curbside parking, save for a couple of streets near the center, where paid parking is allowed but is extremely hard to find. You can be sure, however, that those legal spots are patrolled by meter maids 24/7 and you will be sure to get a ticket as soon as your time runs out. This artificially restricted supply coupled with an overaggressive enforcement likewise creates an impression that visitors are unwelcome here. I’d rather pay sales tax and be left alone then not be able to leave my car by the curb or crawl at 25mph and expect to get pulled over for any traffic infraction. This police racket that these little towns have going is a short-cited policy in the long run, however, as we would be going elsewhere next year.‬

‪Great family recreation area‬
יולי 2021 • חברים
‪Even on a hazy day, the beach is a magnet. Even though we had not planned a swim, we had to get our feet into the soft sand and relatively gentle Atlantic of Bethany Beach. There are both private and public sections. We walked to one of the former from the restaurant where we had lunch just for a look, and then the latter for an actual stroll. Both public and private were clean and packed with summer visitors. A bright sea of umbrellas contrasted with the grey-blue of the ocean. Life guards were well spaced along the public areas. Families and friends were playing horseshoes and catch. The breeze cut through the general mugginess of the day. ‬

‪Nice clean beach town‬
יולי 2021 • זוגות
‪Very nice clean, dog and family friendly but small. Parking was meters or kiosk from 10 am to 11 pm every day. Best bet was to go to the state park beaches with fixed 10.00/ car per day. We went to several. Also not enough restaurants in the area. They were overwhelmed and were not even able to offer take out.‬

‪Very busy week 4 th of July. Great fireworks on the 5 th. Kids enjoyed being close to downtown. Good parking at our rental and could walk most places in the town. Every place very busy from the donut shop in the am to the dinners at night. Missed a lot of places we wanted to go. Places seemed short staffed but we found that to be the case for our whole 2 week trip up the coast after our one week rental in BB.‬

‪Worst Bethany Beach Residence Ever‬
יולי 2021
‪CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION IMMEDIATELY if you have booked the Crowley listing at 105 Campbell Place in Bethany Beach, DE. We planned a vacation to this residence for over a year and were sorely disappointed when we arrived. Too many issues to count - horrible odor, place advertised as sleeping 14 but only sleeps 10 and the photos in the listing do not resemble the frat furniture decor in the home. Save yourself the disappoint and go anywhere else!‬

‪This was our first experience using the beach at Bethany and it was a perfect experience.

Get to the beach early because parking can be tricky. However it was never impossible. The beach is clean, huge and well patrolled.

Wonderful bathrooms and food near by.‬

‪Beautiful beach and boardwalk‬

‪I came just to explore the boardwalk shopping but the beach looked very inviting. Parking is pre paid with a credit card machine which was super convenient to use.‬
