The Bethany-Fenwick area, also known as the Quiet Resorts, located between the Atlantic Ocean and the inland bays in southeastern Sussex County, offers two different tales of the same area. During the tourist season the area bustles with visitors along the miles of beaches and in the many markets and parks. But during the off-season, the Quiet Resorts earns its title. Its year-round residents enjoy a slower pace of life, with tranquil open spaces, beautiful historic sites, and charming hospitality.
While the majority of the area’s commerce comes from the tourism industry, residents also enjoy a well-balanced economy and thriving, independent industries. Drawn by its low property tax rate, new residents are finding the towns in the Bethany-Fenwick area to have a perfect combination of small-town charm with all of the desired amenities. Rich in history and committed to the future, Bethany-Fenwick is a great place to visit and also to call home.
