It attracts visitors who enjoy the of water-related activities available along Delaware's coast. The State Division of Parks and Recreation established this area as Delaware Seashore State Park in 1965.
I stopped at one of the first turnoffs at the northern edge of the park. Here you will find a few WWII coastal observation towers. These towers were constructed between 1939 and 1942 along 40 miles of Delaware and New Jersey coast to protect the port of Philadelphia from German U-Boats. The towers, at heights of up to 80 feet, were backed by the guns at fortifications like Fort Miles at Cape Henlopen.
The area has lots of parking and a large, modern restroom and shower facility with a boardwalk leading out to the water.

I went up to Delaware U to visit a friend and was prepared for a relaxing ie boring weekend. I mean who heard of nightlife in Delaware. We went to Dewey Beach and I have to admit ,I was mistaken. This town swells to over 20,000 people on the summer weekends. That is a lot of drunken people in a small area. If you want to party and are in your 20-30's this place is for you. The only picture I have is of Delaware U since I was too busy having fun at the beach

- Study Abroad
In the summer, the beaches at Dewey are nice, clean, and crowded with college students, usually full of drunken stories of the previous night. I parked at the New Orleans Street meters for about $1.00 per hour and walked just 100 yards to the busy stretches of sand. It seemed like everyone knew each other, and I repeatedly heard the same stories about bar fights, arrests, and hostpital visits...
