We traveled to Rehoboth Beach only to visit Dogfish Head Brewery in near-by Milton, and eat the their Brewpub. We stayed at a hotel about a mile from the beach, and drove there twice to check it out, once around noon and once in the evening on a Friday. Traffic coming in on Rt. 1 was bad enough that we instantly vowed never to come back in the summer, ever. But we found parking on Rehoboth Ave.easily both times. Standard beach stores and fare lined both sides, with the occasional really good restaurant mixed in, and you don't always find this in all beach towns (we especially liked the Pig and Fish.) The 'Boardwalk' was very different than boardwalks we are used to in New England, that tend to stick out over the water with the stores built right on it. This boardwalk was parallel to the water, firmly attached to the ground, with the stores also on dry land, and only on one side. Good points: Beer Ice Cream, ample bathrooms, very clean, good restaurants. Not so good points: very basic beach town, usual t-shirt and trinket shops, stores that close very early in October or are closed completely, even on the off-season more people than we liked including screaming teenagers, and I feel bad for the locals who have to deal with traffic and tourists just to go to their library, that is located smack dab in the middle of the action
