Near our Insight Homes communities in Southern Delaware, there are so many fun things to do outdoors! As the weather gets nicer, we can’t help but want to be out on the water and outside every chance we get. Here are our favorite outdoor activities to enjoy!

Paddle Boarding

With tons of waterways to explore, paddleboarding can be a great adventure as well as a great workout! If you’re a beginner, start with a rental and lesson from Delmarva Boat Sport Adventures, just five minutes from Summercrest in Rehoboth!

Kayaking and Canoeing

Of course, you can’t think of being out on the water without thinking about fishing. Whether you just like to catch and release or you’re looking for tonight’s dinner, Southern Delaware has plenty of places to fish.

Sometimes there’s no better way to spend a sunny afternoon than hitting the green. Southern Delaware has many golf courses to choose from, for players of every skill level. See our recent blog post about the best golf resorts in the area!


Thanks to its location connected to many waterways right in the center of the Mid-Atlantic, Delaware is a great place to bird-watch. The forests, fields, freshwater ponds and coastal marshes are home to osprey and a wide variety of other bird species, as well as a popular stop-off for migratory birds on the Atlantic Flyway.

According to Visit Southern Delaware, some of the best birding locations in the area are Abbott’s Mill Nature Center in Milford, Assawoman Wildlife Refuge in Frankford, Cape May-Lewes Ferry, Delaware Seashore State Park in Rehoboth Beach, Trap Pond State Park in Laurel, Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Milton.

Several of our locations are great for bird watching, including The Marina at Pepper’s Creek and Hawthorne!
