If you’re able to brave the cold and your tires can handle it, driving through Coastal Delaware makes for a beautiful adventure just after a snowstorm.
I wasn’t able to get down there until a few days after the big storm of 2018 (I’ve heard his name was Grayson?), but for the most part, the snow-covered beaches of Bethany, Lewes and Rehoboth were still pristine and free of footprints. The roads were a bit of a different story–while the highway was clear, the downtown areas and side streets were pretty icy–but drive cautiously and you can still enjoy the wintry scene.
The beaches of Delaware after a winter storm are a far cry from the views you’ll get during the summer, but they’re just as special in their own right. And they have a few things that the summer beaches definitely can’t claim: peace, quiet and sparkling snow over the sand. You can’t go barefoot, but at least you don’t have to wear sunscreen!
