Delaware Beaches Court Visitors After Sandy

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - Beach resorts in Delaware are looking for a rebound after the damage caused by Superstorm Sandy and as the economy improves.
    
Carol Everhart of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce tells The News Journal they saw a 20 percent increase in requests for information between January and April.
    
Based on early bookings, Delaware Tourism Office Director Linda Parkowski says resorts are hoping for a 25 percent increase in travel to Delaware this summer.
    
But Jack Lingo Realty in Rehoboth Beach, which often caters to Washington-area travelers, says it has not seen any uptick in rentals for beach houses this summer.
