An event you look forward to all year round, your family vacation is a wonderful time to relax, soak up some sun and make incredible memories with your children. When searching for your perfect vacation spot, one of the most important things to consider is what attractions and activities are available for your family to partake in. If you are looking for a beautiful beach, delicious restaurants, family-friendly attractions and more, Rehoboth Beach is the place to visit! Not sure what attractions to visit first? The Avenue has a few suggestions your kids are sure to love:
After you unpack your bags and slather on some sunscreen, the first place to visit in Rehoboth Beach is Funland! Located right on the boardwalk, there are nineteen rides, sixteen midway games and an incredible arcade area for your whole family to enjoy. Open since 1962, the park’s original five rides are still running and are the perfect way to pass on memories from your childhood vacations to your kids. With arms full of tickets and stuffed animal prizes, your whole family will leave Funland smiling!
Jungle Jim’s Water Park
A great escape during those hot summer days on the ocean, Jungle Jim’s provides hours of entertainment for the whole family. Float along the lazy river while your children ride the waves, rush down water slides and paddle around in bumper boats – there is even a kiddie pool for the youngsters!
And the fun isn’t over once you’ve cooled off in the water. Jungle Jim’s also offers batting cages and mini-golf. The perfect game for a bit of family competition, your whole group will love these sports. With six hitting stations and two 18 hole mini-golf courses, you can enjoy hours of family fun here.
Midway Speedway Park
Another awesome attraction with activities for children of all ages, Midway Speedway Park has races, water slides, mini-golf and more. Open year-round, the go-kart tracks are sure to be a hit with everyone in your family. From the kiddie tracks for your youngest racers to the Sprint Karts your teens will love, you can race the day away with ten different styles of racing on five fun tracks.
Once you’ve had your fill of race car fun, walk on water and fly through the air with park attractions like Water Walkerz and Gravity Storm. For some explosive excitement, we recommend playing a round of mini-golf below the Fire Mountain volcano. Your kids are sure to sleep well after an action-packed day at the Midway Speedway!
