About Rehoboth Beach
Rehoboth Beach is a small, sandy beach town located on the Atlantic Coast in Sussex County, Delaware. Nicknamed “The Nations Summer Capital" vacationers flock to this charming area from May to September. Rehoboth Beach holds a number of other titles as well, including “Best Place to Retire" (AARP) and “Best Beach Boardwalk in America" (Reader’s Digest). While the hotter summer months are the most popular time to visit, Rehoboth Beach boasts a mild winter, which in turn makes it a prime winter destination, too. Some of Rehoboth Beach’s signature events occur in the wintertime, including the Sea Witch Festival (October), Rehoboth Beach Autumn Jazz Festival (October), and Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival (November). Less crowded than nearby Ocean City, Rehoboth is known for being a quaint family-friendly and gay-friendly vacation destination that inspires visitors to make a tradition out of their annual Rehoboth Beach trip.
Things to do in Rehoboth Beach
For starters, go to the beach! As the name suggests Rehoboth Beach is most famous for its namesake beach, as well as Delaware Seashore State Park and Poodle Beach on Queen Street. The beaches are clean, warm, non-smoking, and are optimal for surfing, kayaking, and skimboarding. Other nearby beaches include Cape Henlopen, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, Lewes and Fenwick Island, which are just a Jolley Trolley ride away! Apart from the beach, Rehoboth features beautiful natural sites such as Junction and Breakwater Trail, Gordon’s Pond, and Silver Lake. Feel the wind in your hair with a boat rental ride along the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal or by the Delaware Breakwater East End Light. Families traveling with children will enjoy a day trip to Jungle Jim’s, Delaware’s largest waterpark, or DelMarVa Board Sport Adventures for paddle boarding and other water activities. The adults in your group will relish an afternoon at Nassau Valley Vineyards, the oldest and largest winery in Delaware and the entire family can attend a Clear Space Theatre Company performance. Take some time to learn about the history of Rehoboth at the Indian River Life-Saving Museum at Delaware Seashore State Park, Rehoboth Beach Museum, or Ryes Holt House, the oldest standing house in Delaware. Highly rated restaurants and brew pubs, including the famous Dogfish Head Brewery, pack Rehoboth Avenue, making it a haven for both craft-beer enthusiasts and foodies. Rehoboth Beach’s tax-free shopping outlets and mix of eclectic boutique shops also help set this charming town apart from its nearby beach counterparts. No trip to Rehoboth Beach would be complete without a trip to the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, which is home to a variety of shops, restaurants, and kid-friendly entertainment options like Funland, an amusement park, and Beach Arcade.
