Internet cafe in Rehoboth Beach
When on holiday, it can be a problem to check your e-mail. Especially in western countries it is taken for granted that you have internet at home and don't need to go to public places for that.
But on holiday?
In Rehoboth Beach, there aren't too many possibilities, but you can go to Dewey Beach (which is kind of linked with Rehoboth Beach). There is a place right of the main road called Ruddertowne. It's like a mini-mini mall and there is a cafe and bookshop called "Books and Coffee". It's a cute little store where there are sofas and you can have coffee and look at books. They have two computers there where you can go online. You buy a coupon at the till, 5$ for half an hour, and you can sit down and check your e-mail.
Thrashers Boardwalk Fries
We are not sure why, but this is a local tradition, with vinegar, and the line can be really long, sometimes up to 1/2 hour wait for french fries. These are fried in peanut oil, which is still GREASY, so a small will do.
Fun, Boardwalk, Commercial
"What's an East Coast Beach?"
Yes, there is a difference between the "beach experience" of the Northeasteners and say, California (or overseas!). I was down on East Coast beaches, but here I was - hot and needed to get to the fresh air.
The boardwalk-type is that eastern type, the very crowded, feeling that you are at the beach with everyone in Delaware and Pennsylvania combined .... But it was worth it after those negative ions kicked in!
Pretty good swimming. Super commercial. Good salt-water taffy.
"Where to Stay and Eat"
I am NOT recommending our hotel! It was far away from the beach - not that nice, it did have a small pool. Waiting to find a good deal.
Also cannot really recommend any restaurants. We went to an overpriced Japanese restaurant and an overpriced who-knows-what pseudo gourmet restaurant. Well, that meal was ruined when my husband walked out without a word - later, he claimed he disliked the bathroom, and the prices - so left me and my son there. Amazingly, he caught up with us, or vice-versa later. His idea was to eat pizza. Not my thing. So the challenge here, as you see, is high prices for hotels and sit-down food.
Flew into Baltimore via St. Louis and met up with some friends for a rave in New York later that weekend. Went to the beach, which was too cold, drove up to Philadelphia to get the tickets (at 611 records, met Josh Wink), up the New Jersey turnpike and on to the Catskill mountains in the southern part of New York, where the party was. Saw DJ Icey and a bunch of other cool kids perform then crashed out in a hotel/resort room and flew out of Baltimore for St. Louis then Oklahoma City.
