Independence Day Weekend at Bethany Beach


It’s almost here, one of our favorite holidays of the year! The Fourth of July at Bethany Beach is one of the best weekends of the entire summer, in our opinion! From parties and parades to early morning Farmer’s Markets, there’s something for everyone. To help you take advantage of the weekend we put together a list of the festivities around town. We hope you enjoy a fun, safe, fireworks-filled weekend with family and friends!
