Two Delaware Beaches Nominated For Best In America Award

USA Today and 10Best have launched their Reader’s Choice Awards and two Delaware beaches are up for huge awards.

USA Today is currently taking reader’s votes on the Best Beach in the Northeast.

You can vote once per day until polls close on Monday, May 22 at noon ET. The winning beaches, as determined by your vote, will be announced on Friday, June 2.

Bethany Beach is up for the Best Beach in the Northeast.

USA Today says “With soft sand, gentle waves and a sizable shallow area, this quiet and family-friendly beach is ideal for swimming and safe for small kids. There’s also a beach patrol that provides lifeguards and first aid. Children and adults alike will enjoy the boardwalk lined with shops, restaurants and ice cream stands.”

Delaware beaches seem to be getting TONS of awards lately.

Just last week 3 Delaware beaches made the America’s Favorite 100 Secret Beaches List.

Slaughter Beach was ranked 82nd on America’s Favorite 100 Secret Beaches List, Pickering Beach made the list at number 97, and Broadkill Beach closed out the list of Favorite 100 Secret Beaches List coming in at number 100.

Family Destination Guides surveyed 3,000 families in the United States to determine the hidden beaches they most want to visit in summer 2023.

Rehoboth is also in the running for the Best Beach in the Northeast.

The getaway of choice for many in Washington, D.C., Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, aka the “Nation’s Summer Capital,” features a beautiful, wide sandy beach that stretches for miles with plenty of space for swimming, sunbathing and water sports. Rehoboth Beach is also known for its vibrant boardwalk, a mile-long stretch of eclectic shops, restaurants and attractions including amusement rides and arcades. (USA Today)

We all love their beaches and we all can agree they should get all the love and recognition.

Pennsylvania Has 3 Of The Top 10 Rollercoasters In America

Pennsylvania Has 3 Of The Top 10 Rollercoasters In America

If you are a thrill seeker you won’t have to drive far as PA has 3 of the best coasters in the United States.

USA Today and 10Best have revealed the best roller coasters in the country and people in the tri-state are spoiled.

Readers ranked their favorite coasters in a new poll and some classic amusements parks have made the list.

The top coaster in America is pretty accessible as well since it is in Orlando and there is a billion flights a day to Florida.

“Guests looking for thrills at SeaWorld Orlando will find them aboard one of the park’s roller coasters, Mako. Orlando’s tallest and fastest coaster gets its name from one of the world’s fastest sharks – appropriate for a thrill ride reaching speeds of 73 miles per hour” per USA Today.

On top of Pennsylvania grabbing 3 of the top 10 spots on the list, New Jersey also got in on the action.

Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey and is massive. Its 456 feet high and goes an amazing 128mph.

Pennsylvania Has 3 Of The Top 10 Rollercoasters In America and here they are and where they rank:


  • 8. Phantom's Revenge - Kennywood

    According to Kennywood’s Wikipedia “Phantom’s Revenge is a steel hypercoaster located at Kennywood amusement park in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, United States. It originally opened as Steel Phantom in 1991, featuring the fastest speed and longest drop of any roller coaster in the world. Its second drop is longer than its first, which is a unique characteristic among roller coasters.”

  • 6. Skyrush- Hersheypark

    Skyrush at Hersheypark is AWESOME. I have ridden two of the top 10 coasters in American and Skyrush is confirmed thrilling. Skyrush climbs 200 feet into the air before flying downhill at 75 mph.

  • 2. Phoenix- Knoebels

    I am SO excited that Phoenix made the list and at #2! I love Knoebels and I’m glad the amusement park is getting its flowers. Phoenix is a wooden classic coaster and reaches speeds of up to 45mph. Knoebels is worth a day trip or even a camping trip. If you go make sure you try the blue birch beer.
