Discover hidden treasures when you Explore Coastal Delaware with new app

Coastal Point launches app June 15
Eat! Shop! Play! Explore Coastal Delaware…

Visitors and locals alike can now discover all that South Coastal Delaware has to offer, from its beautiful natural surroundings to its intimate restaurants and unique shops, with the new, free Explore Coastal Delaware app for iOS and Android devices — putting the Delaware beaches in the palm of your hand.

Explore Coastal Delaware brings users the scoop on all that’s happening along the southern Delaware beaches and their historic inland neighbors: Bethany Beach, South Bethany, Fenwick Island, Ocean View, Millville, Selbyville, Frankford, Millsboro and Dagsboro — helping people get right to the fun!

From Fenwick Island to the Indian River Inlet, Bethany Beach to the Maryland line, Explore Coastal Delaware will keep users in the know. Find out about the best eateries (from cozy cafés to fine-dining delights), trendiest stores and hottest entertainment offerings, from boardwalk concerts and movies on the beach to where to catch talented local performers and national touring acts. Or look for a deal on that round of golf or romantic night in a B&B. The deals change regularly, so keep an eye on them consistently.

Along the way, Explore Coastal Delaware will let users know where to pick up a fishing license (and some great spots to go fishing); catch some crabs (or some waves); find a place for the kids to play; buy the freshest produce directly from a family farm; run a race; rent a watercraft; get a good book; fly or buy a kite — or even pick out their future home by the sea.

“Coastal Delaware is already a popular vacation and retirement retreat for people from Philadelphia to Baltimore to Washington, D.C., and more people each year are discovering the appeal of visiting and living here. We want to make it easy for people who are new to the area to find the great entertainment, shopping and dining opportunities our beach towns and their neighbors offer, by putting those wonders right in the palm of their hand,” explained M. Patricia Titus, social media director for Explore Coastal Delaware. “And, for those who already live here, our app will help them find those hidden treasures they may have missed or haven’t visited in a while, as well as look for deals and special offerings at the places they already enjoy.”

No matter where someone is from or where they’re going on their beach vacation, Explore Coastal Delaware makes it all just a tap away. Even if they’re already from here, Explore Coastal Delaware will let users unearth the buried treasures of the First State’s beach communities and help their enjoy their time away from the world in our own little slice of paradise by the shore.
