Events This Weekend in Delaware and Maryland

February 8, 2024

It may still be February but a beautiful weekend is on tap for the Delaware and Maryland beaches. With it comes a perfect opportunity to get outside and enjoy the region before things start picking up in earnest in the coming weeks and months.

We invite you all to enjoy the calm before the storm, so to speak, before the high season kicks off for 2024. Visit your favorite restaurant, go for a relaxing stroll on the boardwalk, and take advantage of the meter-free parking while you still can.

In addition, we have several great things to tell you about in our latest "Weekender Blog," brought to you each week by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Compass RE.

Take a look and be sure to enjoy this special time of year at the Delaware and Maryland beaches. Have a great weekend everyone!
