Beach Life Tips
About Bethany Beach
Bethany Beach, DE has long been considered the quiet resort. From its humble beginnings as a Christian retreat town to today's diverse population of summer residents, Bethany Beach is the embodiment of the sleepy beach town. Bethany was founded by the Christian Disciples of Christ of the Washington and Philadelphia area. It has come a long way from being a town devoted to a Christian retreat to today's population, both year round and summer residents. While Bethany remains a quiet beach town it has a lot going for it. The fourth of July celebration in this town is not to be missed. Bethany host a lot of fun filled summer events on the Bandstand that are not to be missed as well. The town has quite a unique way of bidding adieu to summer during its Labor Day Jazz Funeral.
The fall brings the shoulder season and things kick into low gear. The annual boardwalk arts and crafts festival is not to be missed.
Most of the locals will not miss the Caribbean Christmas charity event at Mango 's every year. It is the highlight of the Bethany Beach charity events.
The town of Bethany Beach is surrounded by the Beaches and Bays that everyone comes to the Delaware shore to enjoy. To the North and South are the Delaware Seashore State parks, which provide residence and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the Delaware Seashore. At the Beaches to the north you can enjoy the state park beaches which are utilized for surfing, fishing, sunbathing and all sorts of beach activities.
Also to the north located in the North Side Indian river inlet is the state owned marina which has year round boat slips, a dry stack marina facility, fishing charter boats, a small restaurant, and bait and tackle shops.
To the South of the town is the Fenwick Island State Park and the Assawoman State Park. Beautiful Beaches and access to the Assawoman bay round out the places that locals and visitors love to frequent. The Assawoman State Park has tons of wooded trails and access to some of the most secluded wetland areas of the State. This makes it an ideal place to go for some peaceful relaxing walks or some fun times spent on the waterways with children.
One of the most striking landmarks of the town is the Bethany Beach Totem Pole. The 24’ statue has been greeting homeowners and guest since 1976. The sculpture was donated to the town by Peter Wolf Toth. Toth created the sculpture as part of his “Trail of the Whispering Giants” project which includes 50 sculptures scattered up and down the coast and into Canada. Originally placed at the corner of Route 1 and Route 26 the sculpture stood until 1992 when it was damaged beyond repair by the heavy winds of the beach and termite damage. The totem pole was removed and sent to the Naticoke Indian museum in Long Neck. A second sculpture was created by Dennis Beach which lasted until 2000. The second sculpture was taken down due to the base of the sculpture rotting. The sculpture that now stands was created by Toth, and is carved out of a western red cedar log which should last another 50 years. The totem pole that now stands was dedicated on July 15, 2002. It again greets the residents and visitors of the Beach town on a daily basis.

In 1960, Dominick Pulieri, along with his sister, Mary Jean Pagliante and her husband Joe, ventured to Delaware to open a pizza restaurant. This was the birth of Grotto Pizza. During this first summer, pizza slices sold for 20 cents each and a whole pizza was $1.60. The challenge, however, was to introduce pizza in an area where it was not recognized. To create a market for his pizza, Dominick and his sister spent long hours talking to people and handing free samples to the people who passed by his restaurant. In July of that summer, he noticed he was starting to get many repeat guests and it was the local Sussex County guests, and later the tourists, who put Grotto Pizza on the map.
