washington likes delaware beaches
It should come to no surprise to people from Delaware, who are used to meeting visitors from the nation's capitol, but the Washington Post's coverage of beaches has a lot of people pointing to the sands of the First State. An admittedly unscientific survey asked people from the Washington area which beaches they liked, and why. Delaware showed up well in the results for a number of reasons.

One of them, of course, was that there's no sales tax in the State. Other people pointed to the comparitively undeveloped nature of Delaware's shoreline. Places like Bethany Beach received praise for its small town atmosphere. And, surprisingly, when it comes to food at the beach, Delaware seemed to be an overwhelming favorite place to go to for a meal.
