Bethany Beach is haunted by a ragged-looking military spirit in tattered clothing that roams along a stretch of the shore. Though uncertain, it is believed that the ghost is Eddie “Fast Eddie” Rickenbacker (b. October 8th, 1890), an Air Force/Army hero from World War I who died of pneumonia in Switzerland on July 23rd, 1973.
The Woodland Beach in Kent County, Delaware was home to a boardwalk and several attractions during the early 1900s. Now, only the boardwalk’s pier remains. However, on a well-lit night (whether by flashlight or moonlight), you can see figures walking over the water where the boardwalk once stood. It appears that they are awaiting a ferry that no longer comes to the beach. Now, the Woodland area is filled with several homes, and the beach is open to the public.
There have been several reports made by the people who live near the Dream Beach about being awoken in the middle of the night by a terrible noise ensued by heavy breathing in front of their faces coming from an unseen entity.
