The off season has been great. I haven't experienced a summer in Lewes/Rehoboth as a resident yet. This will be my first. A couple of my neighbors have said they stay close to the neighborhood pool and avoid the beaches. I hope that is not truly the case. I wouldn't be in DE without a love of the ocean, year round.

Hit the beach during the week. Shop during the week. Stay away form downtown and Rt1 weekends from mid June until the end of August.

Saw recently that they are planning a number of pedestrian crosswalks along RT. 1 between Rehoboth and Lewes. Might contribute to slightly slower traffic, but definitely should make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists looking to cross Coastal Hwy. While I can't walk to Lewes from Bayfront, people around the Plantations should have an easier time of it.
Schell just sold 3 more lots in Bayfront. I think we are getting up to at least 50% now. I wonder how other new communities are faring.

Crosswalks with lights? That would be excellent!

Thanks! And, glad to hear your move turned out so well--you were smart to make the move during off season, I think. If you're happy during off season you know you've picked a place with a good fit.

From the pictures it looks like there will be a crosswalk by the movie complex. The problem there is the street on the other side (Postal Lane) once you get past the golf course is a rather narrow 2 lane with no shoulder or sidewalk It is not lighted at night. I'll drive thank you.

Personally, I might only want to use a crosswalk on Rt. 1 at Rt. 9, and then only if I were on a bike. Rt. 1 is too busy and too big. But down at the outlets, I think they could use some safer ways to get across.

In my opinion that is MUCH TOO DANGEROUS and area to be walking or riding a bike. Yes down by the Outlets they need crosswalks. It amazes me the number of people would walk across there!

We just bought an Insight home and have been very happy with all the upgrades Insight has to offer. When you can get a Subzero Refrigerator and Wolf 6 burner stove as a standard then you have to believe you are getting a quality builder. We are hoping for construction to begin in early September. If you went to any other builder, the changes we made would of been considered a custom build, but Insight has allowed us to customize our home without any major additional charges. Can't wait to move in.
