Help us list the many things that make Bethany Beach and its surrounding towns (Fenwick Island, Ocean View, Millville, etc.) a great place to be – from “A” to “Z”!

We would love to have as many entries as possible for each letter, so feel free to add to our list by leaving a reply in our comments section (click on the top right link to add comments).

is for Yesterday’s Fun. This throwback toy store in Ocean View, Del. allows visitors to take a trip back in time and bring home some vintage pieces of their youth, from a variety of eras. Toys from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today make up this truly fun stop along route 26.

Although a strong selection of action figures, games and dolls populate Yesterday’s Fun, the most awe-inspiring part of the store may be its video game room, which has every vintage game system and countless game titles available to play and, of course, take home for yourself!

Yesterday’s Fun is open during the offseason on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm. Get more information by visiting the Yesterday’s Fun store Web site.

This Saturday, Nov. 10, Tidepool Toys & Games, on the boardwalk in Bethany Beach, will join more than 500 stores across the country to celebrate the third annual Neighborhood Toy Store Day.

Tidepool will offer a full day of events, including a free magic show by Dickens Parlour Theatre at 11 a.m, PlasmaCar races at noon, and a Fastrak game tournament at 1 p.m. There will also be craft demonstrations and prize drawings throughout the day.

The event will also act as the beginning of the store’s Toys for Tots drive. For every $10 spent, customers will be given $2 back to purchase a toy to donate to Toys For Tots.

Also, Tidepool will help build donations to the Get Well Gabby Foundation, which was founded in the memory of a young cancer victim, Gabby Vogel, to fight for a cure for Childhood Brain Cancer. To help build proceeds for this cause, Tidepool will have a free fingernail painting booth by nail polish company, Piggy Paint.
