Non USA people often go to Florida for sun and sand but Rehoboth Beach has a special small town feel that I've never found in the main resorts of Florida. We fly into DC to stay with family then drove down to Rehoboth Beach. Its a low level beach front resort with a good range of quirky stores, clean beach,... More

Great place for beach day... Life guards are off duty at 5pm - way too early, especially that ocean is rough... Boardwalk is OK but nothing out of ordinary... Pricey though... Rented a house for a week and enjoyed beach, as well as evening walks to the boardwalk. Took a day trip to Ocean City (scooter rentals are less expensive)...

Well groomed, from public beach to the nation beach. Always very clean. Our favorite time is after five when beach clears out and the sun is warm and the waves are high. Accomidations are close by.

I'm here for my birthday for 5 days. I've been coming for my birthday for the past 4 years and I'm always excited about it, just like I'm still a little kid!

Always spent weekends and summers in the hamptons, ny or long beach island, nj. Came to rehoboth, de for the first time and absolutely fell in love.

Over the past 20 years, Rehoboth has grown into not only a quaint little beach town nestled on the shore of the some of the most pristine, gorgeous Mid-Atlantic beaches, but it has become a trendy, beachy cornucopia of eclectic restaurants, stylish shops, locals pubs, boardwalk attractions, and one of the the best places to just sit and people watch...

I've been coming here for a long time. Without a parking pass, it is difficult to get to the beach with all your umbrellas but once you get there, the water's fine! Nice neighborhoods, good restaurants, lots of biking. Couldn't ask for more.

It is a really great beach. We ended up parking at a park and ride. For $7, you park in a lot off Shuttle Rd and get brought in an air conditioned shuttle bus right to the beach. And that includes anyone in your vehicle! Way better than spending $13 on a permit and driving in circles trying to find... More

My first experience with an Atlantic beach and it was fine. It was just fine. There were lots of pleasant distractions along the boardwalk and everyone had fun. Felt very safe.
