The South end of the Boardwalk empties you into a residential area that eventually ends at Silver Lake. A nice place for a short stroll on the path around the lake before returning to downtown Rehoboth or crossing over the nearby bridge that crosses the lake leading into the town of Dewey Beach.

We stopped to take pictures at Silver Lake. It was drizzling so we did not stay long. The lake is very pretty and a nice place to take a walk if you like to exercise every day.

The lake is only a block or two off the southern end of the boardwalk. Very nice homes surround the private lake, with most having pretty gazebos on the water.

We love to walk and ride our bikes around Silver Lake. It seems to be cooler with all the trees and shade surrounding it. I enjoy seeing the swans and the beautiful docks that people have built. There are some magnificent houses all around the lake! If you like to walk or bike ride, you will enjoy the cool and... More

Silver Lake is a beautiful natural feature, just south of Rehoboth. It is a natural freshwater lake- the Nanticoke summered here before Henry Hudson- and still is home to herons and cranes.

Nice place for a stroll and picnic. Also in the winter if you happen to be there it's excellent for ice skating.
