On & Around Love Creek
Love Creek is a major tributary that flows into Rehoboth Bay from the northwest. Many people know it because it crosses Route 24 a few miles southwest of Coastal Highway. With all the traffic, it’s not easy to get a good look at it from the bridge, but if you can sneak a peek, it’s a good vantage point. Looking downstream, there’s a marina, with boat slips and boat storage and you can see the creek widening out as it flows toward Rehoboth Bay.
Looking upstream, the creek narrows, the banks are fringed with salt marsh, the shoreline is wooded and it looks like a paddler’s paradise.
