Is the DE 1-S a beautiful road?

We are thinking of going from Ocean City, MD to the Tanger outlet, DE.

Google Maps suggested the DE 1-S route, is it a nice one?

What would be the best part of the day to travel? Morning, afternoon or sunset? We are going by the end of September.

It seems to be a nice option once it will be by the shore most of the time.

It is although except for the few miles in Fenwick, you are not right on water but have buildings to left and right. Right road is north/south and Sun goes east/west. There are a number of bay side restaurants with great sunset views.

Thank you!

Even if it is not that nice it is apparently the shortest way to go up, so I guess that will be our choice anyway!

The main road from Ocean City to Rehoboth is commonly called Coastal Highway (MD 528 -DE 1). This is the best way from the beach to the outlets. You can take some back roads but all you will be seeing are farms and chicken coops. There is a really cool bridge you will cross about 1/2 the way to Rehoboth. After leaving the outlets you can just follow 1 north. After Dover it becomes a motorway that has tolls. If you not in a hurry you can just get off and follow US 13 all the way to I 95.

The 'really cool bridge' is at the Indian River Inlet it has a nice view of the Atlantic Ocean and beach.

It pretty much is the only way to go unless you want to go wayyyyyy out of way. It is a pretty road in some places and an ok regular small highway in other places. Either way it is an easy route and the way to go.
