A Weekend in Delaware State Parks: Delaware Seashore State Park

We just spent a couple nights in Delaware. It was a much-needed relaxing escape. We stayed in Delaware Seashore State Park. We rented a cottage at the Indian River Marina.

The cottages are a really nice option for families who aren’t interested in camping. Or, in our case, the weather is not cooperating. Each cottage has two units that are connected by a breezeway. Each unit includes two downstairs bedrooms and a loft bedroom, living room with a gas fireplace, kitchen, bathroom, and a screened-in patio.

There is a marina in this state park that will accommodate large fishing boats. There’s a large stretch of beach, a fishing jetty, and campsites for RVs, campers, and tents.

The beach here is lovely. We spotted a baby sea turtle, seashells, and remnants of horseshoe crabs. We flew a kite, enjoyed a stroll, and buried our feet in the sand. It was cold and drizzly the weekend we visited. But, we didn’t let that keep us from having a good time. Delaware Seashore State Park is beautiful. I loved waking up to salty breezes and sand outside my door.
