The unofficial start of Summer is Memorial Day, and for those within driving 🚗 distance or getting on a plane, the Mid-Atlantic region has great beach towns to truly enjoy your long weekend!
Ocean City, Maryland not only has beautiful beaches, but has a three mile boardwalk as well. If strolling on the boardwalk is a little too relaxing for you, why not do a little parasailing? It is also known as an amazing deep sea fishing destination as well - who knows what tyoe of fish you will catch? 🐟🐠
The Wild Islands of Assateague and Chincoteague, Virginia has 37 miles of shoreline and is famous for it's wild ponies. There are over 300 of them that roam the beaches and pine forests of Assateague Island. May is actually the perfect time to visit as the bugs aren't too buggy! 😂😂 There are plenty of B&B's, shops and restaurants to choose from as well!
If you need a little big bigger of a city for your Memorial Day escape, Virginia Beach is the place to be. With nearly half a million people, it feels a bit more like Southern California than a sleepy Mid-Atlantic beach town. With a surf scene and a 35 mile stretch of beach, there is plenty of sand for everyone! There is something for families, people that are looking for a little peace and quiet and more along that stretch, so something for everyone!
For those who are looking for a great beach in New Jersey, Wildwood Beach is perfect. It is a very pristine beach that is raked and cleaned daily. Highly recommend! And when you are done relaxing on the beach, you are surrounded by shops, stores, restaurants and amusement parks just minutes away! It's the best of both relaxing and night on the town vibes you could ask for! 💃🕺
Finally, one of the best beaches on the Mid-Atlantic is Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Calm waters, beautiful sand and sun await! The town is great too, with cool boutiques and shops, a boardwalk and restaurants. Come one, come all to this beautiful destination!
