Went to “The Cove” to swim today with the fam. It’s a beach on the Nanticoke River, which empties a few miles away into the Chesapeake Bay. It’s a great place for kids since the waves are tiny. Definitely a good place to take children to learn to swim before allowing them to brave the waves of the Atlantic in Ocean City, Maryland (known as OC to us locals )or Rehoboth Beach, Delaware (both about 35 miles east of The Cove).
Of course OC is a party sport, especially for college kids, and is chock full of high rises and condos. I prefer Rehoboth Beach because it has more of a community feel. The town is still a livable town. Whereas OC is much more commercialized. Also I should note that Rehoboth Beach is the east coast beach destination for gays and lesbians. While it doesn’t matter to me if the beach is shared with homosexuals, I want to paint an accurate portrait of the place for readers.
