Rehoboth Beach has perfected the art of vacation fun over more than a century.
WE’RE JUST A BLOCK AWAY FROM
So Many Fun Things to Do
Rehoboth Beach was dubbed the Nation’s Summer Capital around 1925, when a paved highway was completed that linked it with the nation’s capital, bringing legislators and government employees to visit and vacation. Much has changed since then, as Rehoboth Beach has grown into an all-season vacation destination, but the warm ambience and friendly charm that made Rehoboth Beach the place to summer continues unchanged.
In addition to the magnificent shoreline and historic boardwalk, visitors love the variety of things to do in Rehoboth Beach. Here are just a few:
The charming mile-long boardwalk is one of the city’s best attractions, consistently voted one of America’s best boardwalks in virtually every travelogue that has considered the question. Slated to reopen in May 2021, the boardwalk features quaint shops, restaurants, family amusements, art galleries, gazebo concerts and more. You’ll find yourself going again and again to cover it all.
You’ll find everything from unique treasures at charming boutiques to the fashion essentials at the Tanger Outlet Malls, just 4 miles away. Plus, you’ll enjoy tax-free savings on all of your purchases.
Restaurants do it big here. From casual family meals to upscale dining, there’s no shortage of places to dine. But the big must-visit is the boardwalk’s Ice Cream Store, featuring atypical flavors of ice cream like “Bacon de Leche” and “Better Than Sex.”
A bike will get you to most attractions in Rehoboth in minutes. Bikes are allowed on the boardwalk from 5 a.m. – 10 a.m. from May 15th through September 15th and any time through the rest of the year, and bike tours are offered too.
From Baywood Greens to Beartrap Dunes to The Rookery Club, Rehoboth Beach has some of the most intricately designed golf courses on the east coast. Get inspired by the ocean breeze and easily find the perfect golf experience for your game.
Anglers flock to Rehoboth Beach for its miles of open water and great fishing spots. These include the Fishing Pier at Cape Henlopen State Park, the Indian River Inlet, or surf-fishing from our many state beaches. Charter and head boat fishing is very popular in the area; There are many options for a day out on the water at the Indian River Marina or in Lewes, DE.
A family owned and operated business since 1962, Funland is located on the boardwalk. Featuring 19 rides, 14 midway games, a redemption center, Skeeball, and an arcade, it offers fun for the whole family.
Take a break from stress and commune with nature at one of several state parks (Cape Henlopen, Gordon’s Pond, Delaware Seashore) that offer miles of trails, historic sites, and Instagram-worthy views of the inland Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
