Delaware Seashore State Park Gets New Umbrellas and Beach Club

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - A new bar and event venue is now open at the Delaware Seashore State Park.

Gov. John Carney was among the state leaders at Big Chill Beach Club in Rehoboth Beach Tuesday morning to celebrate a number of partnerships that spot represents.

There are now beach umbrellas available for rent that bare the Visit Delaware logo and website. Delaware's tourism director, Linda Parkowski, says this is just one more way to attract tourists to a state that's seen an increase in visitors every year since 2008.

As for complaints that the new beach club will get in the way of the scenery, Parkowski says the opposite will be true.

"In fact, I think it's going to give you a really good view and a much better view than what you might have right at sea level," she said. "Now you'll be able to be up, be able to see the entire beach, watch the inlet, look at that gorgeous bridge."

Big Chill is one of the largest public/private partnerships and capital investments in state parks history.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.

    Parents and staff at the Lullaby Learning Center say illegal speeding on the Route Nine shoulder is putting their children at risk.

    "We are seeing people pull into the shoulder and just book it up the road at 55 and upwards," explains owner Sheri Gebbia. "This is precious, precious cargo that people just aren't looking out for."
