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.

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.
