I love Rehoboth Beach and the boardwalk! I only live ten miles away. My only complaint is the heavy traffic I must endure to get to the beach but once I'm at the beach, it's all worth it. Parking in season is $2.00 an hour....More

Chair rentals are $6 a day and umbrellas are $12 they will set them up for you. There are plenty of public bathrooms, lifeguards and places to rinse sand off so overall a good beach experience.

It’s a sandy beach with a boardwalk . You can swim, play boardwalk games, eat junk food and have lots of fun.

Technically no. There are public bathrooms but it is posted that you are not supposed to change in them. I think people often break the rules, though. There definitely aren't lockers. The State parks both at Cape Henlopen... More
