Very crowded boardwalk starting at dusk and continuing through the night. If I was a parent with children in a stroller I would rather try pushing it up a mountain rather than trying to navigate the crowds. And being part of the crowd, I would prefer the strollers to stop slowing down and blocking the flow of people. I had... More

The boardwalk was fun. My wife and I played skee ball, ate ice cream and fried clams (separately), found a photobooth, and stocked up on saltwater taffy. If you go, try to find parking farther back from the beach (e.g. by Dogfish head), you'll have a much easier time with traffic when it comes time to leave.

This boardwalk is very clean, and the shops are fairly inexpensive. I would recommend this boardwalk over the Jersey Shore boardwalks any day of the week!

I think you can sometimes find a "dicey" kind of crowd hanging around beach boardwalks, but this was not the case for Rehoboth. There are some really cute shops and restaurants as well as your typical souvenir and sundry shops. We hung out there at night as well as in the day, and it really is a safe, upscale boardwalk....

The Rehoboth boardwalk has managed to stay clean and nice. It has the classic beach shops along it, with some favorite snacking places (like Fisher's popcorn & Thrasher's fries). It's always fun to walk up and down, watch people, and do the things you're supposed to do at the beach. While we didn't actually do anything at the amusement "park,"... More

We visited the Rehoboth beach boardwalk during a crowded weekend and was pleased to see that the vendors handled the situation with ease. This is a family friendly boardwalk without obscene materials. Just good old fashioned fun. Parking is pay by meter that will last for 2hr Increments.

The boardwalk itself is very family oriented. Be prepared to shell out dollars for each and every store multiply that by the number of your kids:) there are some souvenirs stores with good pricing, but mostly there are different games and food. There is also a big amusement park in the middle of it. Fun place to walk by on... More

We absolutely love this place! Moving here in a few years to be close to the ocean! The Boardwalk is clean and the shops are AMAZING! My favorite place to vacation.... Once we move it will feel like a permanent vacation! 💖

Rehoboth's boardwalk is small, but makes up with a vibrant family crowd, gorgeous beach and some fun attractions. The whole area has a much more wholesome feeling than Ocean City. Even when it's extremely busy this boardwalk does not feel rowdy, just crowded and vibrant. Beware of the limited, rather expensive parking, and prepare to walk many blocks down Rehoboth... More

Stopped in here for a few hours while in the area, on a recommendation from family. Really nice beach, but learned the hard way that dogs are not allowed on the boardwalk, even if they are small ones (we have a 12-pound Shih Tzu) that you can carry in your arms. Quickly asked to leave by the local five-O. But,... More
