Make the first day of 2016 one to remember during your stay at The Avenue! After enjoying an evening of food, music and friendship, start your first morning of the New Year splashing in the ocean or hiking the beautiful and scenic Cape Henlopen State Park.
After a night full of New Year’s Eve celebrations, jump into the ocean and take part in the fourth annual Dewey Dunk! Head down to Dewey Beach, located just a few minutes away from The Avenue to take part in this New Year’s celebration. The party starts with a bonfire at 11:30 a.m. and the jump into the ocean will take place at noon. For $25, you will receive a commemorative t-shirt and a wristband for New Year’s Day discounts around town.
First Day Hike at Cape Henlopen State Park
Pack a picnic lunch and spend some time at Cape Henlopen State Park as 2016 begins. Join park staff as they participate for the first time in the National First Day Hike, an initiative started by the National Association of State Park Directors to get families to celebrate each New Year in a healthy and unique way. The Cape Henlopen State Park hike will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 1, 2016 and will take participants to the park’s sandy northeast tip. Children ages 7 and up are invited to attend. This outdoor event is free, but pre-registration is recommended. For more information, call 302-645-6852.
As you make your New Year’s Day plans, be sure to book your stay with The Avenue for an enjoyable New Year in Rehoboth Beach. We look forward to celebrating the beginning of 2016 with you!
