Plantations East is an extremely quiet family friendly neighborhood with lakes, ponds, wide roads and a picnic island (fishing pier, tables and barbecue grills). Our condo is in a quiet area on a dead end street that faces a pond with much open space. We have outdoor games that can be set up on the grass next to our house. The older community (The Plantations) is across the street from our entrance and the Dave Marshall Tennis and Fitness Resort with an outdoor pool, workout facility and tennis courts is located there. The Dave Marshall pool is a 10 to 15 minute walk (1/2 mile) and daily/weekly passes can be purchased.
It is about a 15 minute drive(depending on the time of day) from our house to the two closest beaches (Lewes beach and Cape Henlopen beach). Lewes beach is on the inlet and great for families with small children since there are no waves and the parking lot is adjacent to the beach. There is a bathhouse there and it is a short walk to the ice cream store. The second beach is located in Cape Henlopen State Park and it is on the ocean but a further walk to the beach from the large paved parking lot. There is a bathhouse and restaurant and waves for the older children and adults. The daily entrance fee is $5 for Delaware vehicles and $10 for out of state vehicles. From the Lewes beach you can view dolphins, small sailboats, and people kayaking and paddle boarding. Rehoboth Beach is 5 miles from our house and is very popular for it's mile long boardwalk along its beautiful beach. Fun Park for kids with rides and arcades and concessions and beach food are found on the boardwalk. Parking is more difficult since you park on the local streets that have meters with time restrictions. A new park and ride area less than a mile from our house provides travel to Rehoboth Beach and outlet stores along Route 1.
Delaware is known for sales tax free shopping and it's outlet stores in this area. There are 3 Tanager Outlet shopping areas (with over 130 stores) with the closest one 6 minutes (2 miles) from our house. In addition to the outlet stores there are many quaint stops found in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach. There are also two popular facilities nearby that give tours: Dogfish Head brewery located in Milton, Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes and historic tours in Lewes.
There are many activities for all family members to choose from at the Delaware beaches. Midway Fun Park with water slides, miniature golf and gocarts is 1 mile away. Cape Henlopen State Park has over 20 miles of biking and hiking trails, a long fishing pier, and surf fishing beaches. In Rehoboth is Fun Park on the boardwalk and nets set up on the southern end of the beach for beach volleyball. Lewes is a fun area to go to the marina to rent kayaks, paddle boards, daily fishing trips, evening cruises, morning dolphin watching cruises, yoga on the dock or walk the history tour. For the golf enthusiast our house is located within 15 minutes of several public golf courses including Old Landing Golf Course, Rookery Golf Club (South course in Milton & North course in Milford), Baywood Greens Golf Course as well as 3 par courses at Midway Par 3, Delaware Par 3 and Rehoboth Golf Park.
