Wanted to clear up a few things I see in the reviews....while almost all positve, believe some folks are missing a lot of Rehoboth has to offer. - Boardwalk is very clean. Always recommend going for an early morning walk when less crowded. In the off-season, it's great as many of the food outlets and stores remain open. - A... More

We really enjoyed visiting here! It was so neat strolling along the boardwalk and playing the arcade games, eating junk food and reminiscing about the past.

Love this Boardwalk--overall. Friendly atmosphere: families, couples, friends, solo walkers--all welcome! What I don't get, and want Rehoboth Beach to take action on, is simple: this summer there were at least 2 Boardwalk businesses selling powerful LASER lights as "toys." These things are deservedly ILLEGAL in many tourist areas (Ocean City, MD., just down the shore, for one) and they... More

This boardwalk has a nice family feel. The beach is lovely and has plenty of space. If the dolphins don't make an appearance you can always enjoy the little black-headed gulls. There are so many restaurants and bars and various amusements. And plenty of shops. There's even a nice bookstore and a small museum for rainy days. The crowd coming... More

While we are not great beach goers Rehoboth was exceptionally clean and felt very safe. There was a lot to do for the teen and preteen kids to do. The parents were able to relax and find a quite spot as well. Walking on the boardwalk in yhe morning was great as well. Would recommend to any family with kids.

Extremely crowded with inconsiderate visitors as well as an over abundance of arcades and poor food choice holes in the wall.

Although I live in Florida, I LOVE Rehoboth Beach and visit it every time I go to Delaware!!! The boardwalk seemed so much longer when I was a child but I know that it is all in perspective.... just a nice place to stroll, snack, shop for touristy stuff..... Can't wait to go back..... and in the off-season, I like... More

I am not much for splashing in the ocean, but I did enjoy the boardwalk. I went into all the shops, we ate at Grotto's pizza, the food was very good. There is a pretzel place there that sells yummy cinnamon sugar pretzel bites, that my grand kids enjoyed. At Grotto's pizza my son and I bought these huge insulated... More

Clean boardwalk with good variety of options. Parking is tough but the trolley is a great option back to Dewey Beach for $3 one way. Games, food, stores...it's all here. We met and spoke to a bunch of friendly people along the way. Fun vibe.

Rehoboth has worked diligently on its dune restoration project so the boardwalk is an interesting mix of kitsch and nature. The right number of public facilities for the length plus lots of easy ways to get off the boardwalk make this one my favorite of the Atlantic beaches.
