“Best Little Beach Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

I love this place. It is a sleepy little beach town with just enough to do to keep it interesting but yet not over populated and insane like other resort towns.

“clean and wonderful beach !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

So much to do in the area, but not like other overly developed areas like the "Jersey Shore". So much to do and the area is so clean and beautiful.

“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

The boardwalk is quaint, unlike the Ocean City boardwalk. It is smaller and more family oriented. My kids love the rides and the fries! You can watch the sunset or rise, walk the boards, play games, shop, and get a bite to eat.

“Who doesn't like the Boardwalk?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Nice atmosphere, safe and comfortable. Not too many people in the winter, so there were a few dog walkers, joggers and couples enjoying the scenic views.

“Nice mix of people.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

The boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach is exactly one mile long. The wider commercial section is at the north end centered on Rehoboth Ave. There is a band stand with free live music many nights in season and lots of typical boardwalk entertainment like a small amusement park, arcades, junk food and shops galore. This part can be crowded especially on weekend nights with a mix of locals and tourists, families, couples, singles, you name it. On weekend and holiday nights there can be too many teenagers hanging out for some people’s tastes but overall it is safe and reasonably civilized, save one or two jerks when it's really crowded. There are enough police on the boardwalk to maintain order at all times. Rehoboth Beach is a very gay friendly town so you will see quite a few gay couples, occupationally holding hands. If this bothers you, better skip Rehoboth.
The south end of the boardwalk fronts private homes and is a quiet, beautiful and charming walk anytime but is a particularly welcome break from the throngs when downtown is crowed.
