Bethany is probably closest, about a 20 minute drive, Dewey, and Rehoboth are about an hour away . All are in Delaware. Assateague Island is close by with a beach that you share with wild ponies. I like Bethany the best out of those four.

Fenwick Island is immediately after Ocean City when you cross into Delaware from Coastal Highway. Personally I think it still seems a lot like Ocean City, but there are some nice shops and there is no sales tax over the line.

There is a wreak diving museum above Sea Shell City that is free and quite interesting.
