Heading off to a beach resort such as Ocean City, Md., or Rehoboth Beach, Del.? There are so many choices that planning a trip can be daunting. Sure, you want to spend time dipping your toes in the ocean, but where do you stay and what do you do off the beach?

Ocean City, Md., created a new trip planner this year to help make the process easier. You can create an itinerary online that includes accommodations as well as activities like concerts and then see an interactive map that shows you the relative locations of everything you’ve selected. When you’ve finished you can print the itinerary and even share it on social media.

Southern Delaware’s beaches offer seasonal fun, with activities ranging from art shows to kayak trips. The area also benefits from the entertainment options offered by venues like Freeman Stage and Clear Space Theatre as well as the fantastic nature adventures at Cape Henlopen and Trap Pond State Parks.
