This was our first trip to rehoboth & it was a nice getaway. The boardwalk is nice & clean although it has a little bit of the Jersey Shore feel, but that's what many families want. The first two days we went straight out to the beach across from Dolles & the crowd was a little rough. The second day... More

Our family's tradition of visiting this beach dates back to 1958. It started with our parents taking us and we have taken our kids and had planned to take their kids. However we found the boardwalk no longer has the magic it once carried in times past. Most of the shops we enjoyed are long gone. Sitting on the boardwalk... More

Come visit Rehoboth Beach and compare to the New Jersey beaches. You will fall in love. If you are looking for the big rides and the expensive games, you won't find them here. You will find a quaint town with specialty shops, affordable food, games that you can still play for $1.00 and a small selection of amusements for the... More

My family had a place just minutes outside of Rehoboth for about 30 or so years, so needless to say, I've practically grown up there. Up until about 5 or 10 years ago, this was the best place to go for a relaxing family getaway. It was predominately friendly, middle-class families, couples, and gays. The boardwalk would get crowded especially... More

I have been to beaches all over the world because I am a beach lover! I was pleasantly surprised when I spent the day at Rehoboth beach. What a beautiful, clean and spacious beach. It is on the Atlantic Ocean so you have to watch your children and yourself because it can be pretty rough but saying that, you can... More

Our first time to Rohobeth and really enjoyed it. Crowded, as we expected, for Memorial Day weekend but teen and pre-teen enjoyed the sand, sun and people watching. A little dirty but thats on the visitors as there's several trash cans available. Could also rent chairs and umbrellas but we didn't so don't know the cost. Will be back.

Rehoboth Beach is a great place for fun in the sun. Boardwalk has all you could wish for including food, entertainment and rides for the kids. Local restaurants are excellent. Wonderful shopping. There are two or three very fine hotels if you really look (ie. Bellmoor, Avenue). The downside: 1) very crowded beach and 2) raunchy, noisy nightlife with loud... More
