Small Business Loan – Hotel Dewey in Dewey Beach, Delaware

Dewey Beach is a seafaring town known as 'a magnet for party goers', an upbeat town, drawing an abundance of people from Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Wilmington with its nightlife and party reputation. It is hard to believe upon entering this quaint beach community, that it is only one mile long and three blocks wide. Located just west of Rehoboth Beach, one needs only to park their car because everything is within walking distance. The town was incorporated in 1981, but there is interesting history pertaining to the area that occurred before this date. Appearing in the Baltimore Sun Newspaper in 1940, a man named John Coady discovered a strange-looking fish in the waters of Rehoboth Bay. He brought it to Capitan John Waples and upon noticing that this fish had a particularly large stomach, Capitan Waples cut the fish open and discovered that inside, was an entire three-pound whiffler duck in which the fish had swallowed. In 1962, Dewey had a three-day Nor 'Easter. For sixty hours the coast was hit with heavy gale winds, high tides, and icy, cold rain. The Atlantic ocean breached the dunes and overran the town with extensive flooding. The waves reached as high as twenty feet, crashing against the homes and businesses of this seaside town. Successfully, the town rebuilt itself and stands strong to this day!

Dewey quiets down considerably in the autumn and winter seasons and offers an entirely different kind of alluring beauty. Grey skies, cool breezes, and vacant beaches.
