Introduction to the Episode
Welcome to the fourth episode of Locals Know Best! I’m your host, Cindy. I’m a full-time RVer and lover of all things travel-related. Years of adventuring on the road have taught me one fundamental lesson; locals ALWAYS know best! Every episode of this podcast will dive into one local’s perfect day of outdoor adventure in their town!
In this episode, I’m going to be talking with born and raised local, Micah Idler, about how to make the most of an outdoorsy trip in Delaware. And more specifically, we’ll be exploring a few of Delaware’s east coast towns, including Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, and Dewey Beach.
Join Micah and me as we explore what else there is to do, beyond the beaches in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, and Dewey Beach, Delaware!

I think the best option is really getting a group of friends or your family out and just sharing a house together and just creating a bond through activities, great food, whether indoors or out.Micah Idler
I think it’s more about quality in Delaware. Even if it does get busy, which it does, I feel like it’s still a local kind of vibe to it. And I think that Delaware has done a good job of kind of preserving that.Micah Idler
I feel like there’s so much I still didn’t talk about. But that’s the thing is that I just love Delaware and the beaches so much that it’s always home, even if I don’t live there at the moment. So I highly recommend people checking it out and that they can actually experience it for themselves.Micah Idler
