“wow, so clean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

way better than ocean city, MD. Not as crowded and way cleaner. After my trip to Dewey, I prefer it hands down to OC!

“A little slice of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is the best beach town within a few hour drive of Washington by far. A very clean beach and town, with lots fun in the sun. Wonderful restaurants and some of the best bars in the area. A great family vacation spot. Enjoy

“Family Friendly Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Dewey Beach is loaded with families and folks just enjoying the beach. After 5pm, folks head out with their dogs and the fisherman surf casting set up. It is especially nice in the early mornings. A great part of America.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The beach is nice, not overcrowded like some of the other local beaches. The town has some nice places to eat and drink. There's a trolley that will take you to Rehoboth and back from 10am-2am.

“Great beachtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My family and I vacationed in Dewey for one week in August 2013. We rented a house on the bayside and had a fantastic time. The beaches are very quiet and super clean. The main street has quite a few restaurants and shops. The only downside is parking. There isn't much and it will cost $$$. So pack your quarters! But good news....almost everything is within walking distance. The bonfire on Wednesday nights is great. They also offer movies on Mondays, but we missed it. And Rehoboth is a very short drive away. Overall Dewey is a great beach town!
