      The area has been overbuilt.

      Route 54 and 26 are horrendous to travel, and that area has some of the worst drivers I have ever encountered. Those areas used to be beautiful but now because of overexpansion, it is sad to look at. Fenwick Proper is nice enough, but once again overexpansion has even hurt that. In the Early Summer, drunks stay at the hotels (Maybe these people originated from nearby Ocean City). Some of the parking lots in nearby hotels get drunks passed out on the ground. At least the Sands got torn down and the drug addicts that stayed there had to go stay somewhere else, I fear these individuals are staying at nearby hotels who sell to anybody. The Beaches are nice in the area and that really is the only good thing about the area. The housing will cost you money. There is better value at other areas. Shopping is non-existent, you have to go to Rehoboth Beach.
