Allure of the Shore Behind close doors in Rehobeth and Lewes
The sand and the sea breezes beckon…in one whirlwind of a day, we will gain access to unique private enclaves, sample seaside fare, and have an insiders’ guided tour by a distinguished resident of the first town in the first state. You may have gone to the shore a hundred times, Hon, but Diversions’ day by the sea will be the trip you will always remember!
We will awaken you to the splendors- hidden and outright- of the towns of Rehoboth and Lewes. Our day begins and ends with private entrées to magnificent homes that reflect different lifestyles. We’ll start with a full breakfast aboard our coach as we head to our first stop, The Rehoboth Art League, located on 3 ½ acres in one of the most beautiful sections of Rehoboth Beach. It was originally a summer camp for artists known as the Rehoboth Art Colony, where students came to paint with artists like Howard Pyle, one of America’s best-loved illustrators.
From here, we will be welcomed into several of the most distinctive homes in the area. The homes on this year’s Cottage Tour have very different landscapes, interior and architectural designs, ranging from historically significant to contemporary. They have quite an evolving history and many homeowners showcase memories and collections in creative ways.
A waterfront lunch will be served at Gilligan’s, a charming restaurant in Lewes, known for its award-winning crabcakes, down-home excellence, and local flavor. Time will be left for browsing through the town center and into the quaint and unique shops of Lewes, founded in the 1600’s and home to many historic buildings from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
We will then travel on to a beautifully appointed private residence arranged through our local connections. Savor champagne and strawberries as we appreciate the interior design and maybe even pick up some ideas for our own homes. Departing for Baltimore at 4:30 PM we’ll enjoy delicious snacks followed by a wonderful movie. You’ll come back feeling like you’ve been on a delightful vacation refreshed by tastes, talents and unique exposures by the sea. Don’t gamble with this trip – make “shore” you’re on it! Wednesday, July 11 @ $219.00 (4 available) Depart Baltimore at 6:45 am and return at 7:00 pm.
