We call the endless walking around the town "hitting the boards". You HAVE to walk the boardwalk, it is NOT that long! Shop, eat, enjoy the ocean, (so close!), people watch.
Fondest memory: The must-do general custom of our family...HIT THE BEACH!!! That's all day, of course. Get hungry, go up to the boardwalk and grab some yummy junk food, (a chili dog, a piece of pizza, or...our favorite, a sausage and pepper sandwich). Follow with ice cream. Shop your way back to blanket. Take a nap. Take a swim. Pack it up, and head for the hotel. Shower, dress for dinner. Go to dinner, (this will require that you hurry up and wait...) shop till you drop. Have another icecream, or perhaps a nice funnel cake. Hit the sack, get up and start over...
Shopping, sunning, swimming, biking, great food everywhere. Check out the towns on
See you at the beach!
Fondest memory: On the beach all day, swimming and eating. Walks around town and boardwalk. Go to hotel, shower, rest, dress. Walk to great restaurants, dancing and music. Moonlit stroll on beach. Sit and people-watch with a nice frozen yogurt from TCBY. Buy some clothes and T-shirts for everyone back home, no sales tax here.
Favorite thing: Not a bad beach, clean close to boardwalk, easy to go get food and drinks. Lots of shopping and people watching. Always has alot of people on the beach so get there early and set up or (stake out your spot) with your beach blanket and umbrella.
Favorite thing: You can rent beach umbrellas and chairs for the day from local venders that are set up on the beach. As you can see many people do this! Be careful not to leave your stuff unattended, there are theives!
If you are staying in town, (you are a lucky dog) you best grab your spot early. The beaches near the hotels fill up fast.
Fondest memory: You can pack a lunch to save $$, but boardwalk grazing is excellent in Rehoboth.
Favorite thing: You'll see a big sign for the Convention Center as you drive or walk down Rehoboth Avenue. This is the place to stop if you want a walking map or a parking permit. There are also occasional concerts and other social events held here. Inquire within for information about current local events, including festivals, concerts and exhibitions in town.
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.
We loved to play the games at night after dinner, or on a rainy day.
Fondest memory: Collect tickets for cool stuff. Say goodbye to your money.
