It's Labor Day Weekend here in the coastal region, and that means one final blowout before the official end of the Summer of 2017.

We've had some great events and happenings this summer while the beach areas, as always, have welcomed literally millions of visitors to both coastal Delaware and coastal Maryland over the last few months.

If you live in the area year-round, there's still plenty to look forward to as we now shift our focus to the Fall Festival Season. So get ready for a whole lot of family-friendly fun during September and October.

And if you only visit during the summer season, or live here for just a portion of the year, we hope you'll visit us during the offseason. And, of course, we all look forward to a fantastic summer season in

Greetings again everyone and welcome to our final online "Home of the Week" feature prior to the 2017 Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

It's been a great summer here in the coastal region, but man where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the arrival of summer, and now it's nearly over.

But the good news is that Coastal Delaware is now a year-round destination, complete with "extended seasons" in both the spring and the fall, so there's always plenty to see and do in the area.

It wasn't all that long ago that the coastal region was pretty much a summertime playground, but all that has certainly changed in the last few decades. While some businesses on the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk still close up shop during the offseason,

Local Realtor Dominick Scott spends a good deal of his time these days promoting, showing and, hopefully at the end of the day, selling luxury homes at the Delaware beaches. 

But in reality, Scott’s been involved in the luxury home market for decades, even though he didn’t obtain his Delaware real estate license until just a few short months ago.

It’s just that the properties he used to showcase weren’t located at the beach, or even on solid ground for that matter.

Instead, the “luxury homes” Scott used to sell travelled all over the world, often soaring above the clouds on the way to exotic destinations like Italy, China, the United Arab Emirates and many more. And now he’s gone from selling luxury homes in the sky to selling luxury homes at the

Well it's hard to believe, but we're only a few days away from the traditional end-of-summer Labor Day Weekend. The season sure went by quickly, as it always does, but we think you'll agree that it's been a fantastic few months here in coastal Delaware.

And while the passing of the traditional summer season can be a sad moment, marked by the always entertaining Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral next weekend, it also means the start of a couple of new seasons that we think you'll enjoy. And those are...

  • The so-called "Locals Summer," which generally lasts for all of September and into early October

  • The 2017 Southern Delaware Fall Festival Season, which will last into early November

So while the Memorial Day to Labor Day summer season

Mark and Lisa Cammy moved to the Delaware beaches a couple of years ago from central New Jersey, calling it “really the best decision we could have made for ourselves.”

For the most part, they’ve never looked back, settling into their new lives, making new friends and inserting themselves into the fabric of the greater coastal Delaware community.

They love living in the coastal region, but they also realized soon after arriving that something wasn't quite right. And it's no mystery what was missing - it was The Max Challenge.

A life changing fitness and nutritional program that thousands of Americans have taken part in, The Max Challenge was not available in Delaware at the time. The Cammys greatly missed it, not only the physical aspects of the
