Year-Round Beach Town
Rehoboth Beach is a great place with a great location. This Mid-Atlantic coastal town is just a two hour drive from Baltimore, Philadelphia or Washington, D.C. With a combination of old-fashioned charm and contemporary amenities, downtown Rehoboth Beach has it all. Along with our boardwalk, beach and ocean views, Rehoboth Beach is the Restaurant Capital of Delaware, a signature town for spas and relaxing vacations, a marvel of upscale (tax-free) boutiques and an amazing place for family fun or romantic getaways. Oh, and we have taffy, t-shirts and beach memories, too.
This section covers everything you need to know about visiting, shopping and dining in downtown Rehoboth Beach! Did you know that there is no off-season? Rehoboth is a year 'round beach town with events all through the calendar not just the busy summer season. Help support downtown and make your mark with an engraved brick paver! Enjoy your virtual visit and then come see us in person. There's a great vacation waiting for you in Downtown Rehoboth Beach. Years ago, beach resorts bustled in the summer and shuttered their doors for the rest of the year. Things have certainly changed!
Summer sizzles at the beach, arcades and ice cream parlors. Rehoboth has bandstand concerts, a Farmer’s Market, miniature golf, amusement park rides for the kids, beach volleyball, cotton candy, pretzels, t-shirts and flip-flops, outdoor dining under the stars, a fantastic boardwalk and beach - and of course, July 4th Fireworks over the ocean. Rehoboth Beach is the Nation’s Summer Capital – our hotels, B&Bs and rentals await the gang for a hot summer/cool time!
Fall is packed with special events and glorious weather. Come for the Jazz Fest, Sea Witch Halloween Festival, Sidewalk sales, Pet Costume Parade, Greyhound Weekend, Independent Film Festival, outdoor dining, walks on the beach, 10-k races, and all the tax-free boutique shopping you can pack in as we head toward the holidays. Fall is fantastic in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.
