Endless Fun on Fenwick Island
One of Fenwick Island’s most prominent attractions is Fenwick Island State Park. Here, visitors can stroll along the beach, lay out on the sand, take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean, go crabbing or clamming, fish, surf, go boating, and windsurf in the picturesque environment of Delaware’s seashore.
Closer to town, kids and kids-at-heart can enjoy themselves at Thunder Lagoon Water Park during the warmer months of the year and Viking Golf & Go-Karts, which has a delightful go-kart track and mini-golf course. Other fun, themed mini-golf courses include Golf Down Under and Lost Treasure Golf. Lost Treasure Golf is open seasonally.
The Discoversea Shipwreck Museum is another intriguing and family-friendly attraction. Hosted seasonally above a seashell shop, this museum is free to attend and showcases as many as ten thousand different maritime artifacts, including bars of gold.
Not far from the Discoversea Shipwreck Museum, Viking Golf & Go-Karts, and Thunder Lagoon Waterpark is the Fenwich Island Light. Built in 1859, this historic lighthouse functions as a museum and boasts a wood frame keeper’s house with Gothic Revival architecture and an eighty seven-foot tower.
For those interested in water-based recreation, Little Assawoman Bay is a great place for boating, kayaking, and more. Local rental providers like DelMarVa Board Sport Adventures and Coastal Kayak offer kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding rentals for hourly, daily, and weekly rates. Additionally, these companies also provide guided tours of Little Assawoman Bay.
Another excellent place to go for water-based recreation is Shark’s Cove Marina. Here, you’ll encounter rentals and rides for wave runners, pontoon boats, parasailing, banana boats, and more.
Assawoman Wildlife Area, which touches Little Assawoman Bay, is an excellent place to take a scenic drive through nature, spanning over the course of thousands of acres of protected land. Keep an eye out for rare species of plants and animals!
In between sightseeing when you’re not enjoy your comfortable Fenwick Island vacation rental, indulge in the fresh seafood at Just Hooked or Fenwick Crab House. Just Hooked’s farm to table menu—or, oftentimes, ocean to table menu—emphasizes fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Meanwhile, Fenwick Crab House has received national recognition for its crab cakes.
For a fancy night out, dine at Nantuckets Restaurant and try their lamb, locally-caught seafood, or famous dry-aged steaks. Catch 54 is also a great choice for a date night dinner, with waterfront views and a restaurant headed by an award-winning chef.
Grab drinks at local bars like Harpoon Hanna’s, Ropewalk, or Smitty McGee’s Raw Bar. Harpoon Hanna’s is also a great spot for Sunday brunch and sunset dinners. They offer free boat docking, making them a wonderful choice when you need to refuel with a bite to eat in between your excursions out on the water. Further still, they also have boat and jet ski rentals on-site, in addition to hosting kid-friendly Pirate Adventure cruises during the summer season.
Just a short drive away across the state line is the famous mid-Atlantic city of Ocean City, Maryland. Take a leisurely walk along the boardwalk and check out the restaurants and shops in the area for a fun day trip.
