We’re well into summer and it’s the time of year when we all love to be outside. And this summer seems especially hot!!!  Am I right?

Delaware has SO many fun things to do outdoors across the entire state.  From hiking trails, beautiful beaches, outdoor dining options, boardwalks and these awesome 4 Delaware water parks you should slide into this summer.

Whether you’re a Rehoboth Beach guy or a Lewes girl, there are a few options close by for everyone.

Seriously, what’s better than floating down a lazy river, maybe with a cold, fruity cocktail in hand,  on a weekend away?  Soaking up the sun while the little ones play in a splash pad really can’t be beat.   The crew over at Only In Your State put together a list of the places where we can do just that.

So get outside and enjoy yourselves this summer!  Spend some quality time with the family, with fun in the sun for everybody, at these 4 Delaware water parks you should slide into this summer!

Don’t forget the sunscreen!
