    AC Is nicer

    Hey I dunno about all this canadian money and toll booth BS, but I will defend the fact AC is nicer than Bethany. Because can you see a concert, eat at a 5 star restuarant, gamble in 12 different casinos, shop at some of the best stores in the world, and surf the steel pier all in one day. Or could you see a UFC title fight or WBC title fight, dabble in the underworld of prositution, illegal drugs, and gangs that you would only see on HBO and then surf in ocean city NJ which is near by or anywhere in AC all in one day. Also what does bethanny beach have to offer that 20 of our touristy beach locations dont have, besides the fact your tourists are rednecks and ours are people from the cities. Also one word Borgata...cant beat it. I would bet that most people would rather stay a weekend in AC over bethanny beach. SO by comparing your supposed best beach to what you feel is one of NJ's worst beaches and failing to have it be "better or nicer" just further supports my comment. Delaware beaches are a nice for what they are.....a place to stop and see on your way down to OBX or anywhere other than there.

    I hear you, and to each his own. I actually posed the question about Fenwick, not Bethany and am not from either so I don't care. In fairness though there alot of people out there who find AC to be a disgusting cesspool. But you are right, Bethany does not compare when it comes to gangs, violent crime or prostitution.

    I don't want to be seen as an unfair basher on DE. so let me add that growing up in California, and free surf, it is against my religion to pay for beach tags in NJ. or anywhere else. That's all, carry on men.

  4. I prefer Delaware. Taxes are lower, tourists are nicer. One thing to appreciate here in DE is the amount of coast that is state park that will always be there. If we didnt have a state park system you would have the crap thats happening along the bethany/IR corridor with gated communities. Now imagine that all along Rte 1. I am thankful to have parks and easy acess. Sure it could be better, but it could be worse.
    Nothing like surfin LBI off season, yes, but summer? forget it. Between Vinnie the shoobie from exit 138 and Dirk the local its craziness. Water and air temps go lower by a few degrees in the winter too.

    Delaware may not have an AC, but I swear we have some of the cleanest and softest sand of most of the beaches I have been to.

    Thanks!

    David,
    Thanks for the "heads up." Early last week I nabbed one of those payment envelopes at the unattended gate and inserted my $8 reluctantly figuring who ever checked these things anyway, and wanting to provide a model in honesty to my youngest son who was with me. In retrospect, dmnd good thing I did. Curiously you can park at the marina at no charge, it's just a longer walk. How do they justify an $86 fine for parking? What's an out-of-state pass cost if they'll even sell them to you? And yes, you do have to give the South Bethany police credit for being as obvious as they are about speed traps. Every time I head that way, and it's not often, they're ALWAYs in the same spot on the median strip. It's quite an effective deterrent to violations. Maybe they could use a fake car like the Maryland State Police did one time on Rt. 50 in Berlin- but then that car was stolen by some ner-do-well. Must now be a dorm decoration for some college surfer.

    I was wondering what happened to that car. It really was stolen?

    MD state police

    I never understood how they could get away with putting up a decoy speed trap car. Good thing it did get stolen. MD state police were always greedy f---ers on rt. 50, ballsy too they just step out into the road with their hand up to pull you over. Speed limit on that road could be at least 65 in most spots.

    Are you f*cking kidding me??!! AC is a f*cking DUMP compared to Bethany and I surf South Jersey. you obviously havent been to BB that much to know who goes there. The rednecks are in south OCMD but I'd take rednecks over AC guidos any day.
