Water shimmers in the sunshine as travelers drive Delaware’s Scenic Coastal Highway (SR 1), with bird-filled salt marshes on one side of the road and the pounding Atlantic surf on the other. Resort hotels, vacation homes and quiet coastal towns alternate with state parks that preserve sweeping tracts of undeveloped, white-sand beaches.
