“Real Beach Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We've been here several times and this time in particular, I was reminded that this place has retained the feel of a beach resort from my youth. Sure there are chain stores and restaurants, but it still has the old fudge and saltwater taffy places, the shops with tacky t-shirts and flips, and the commercial district is not too commercial. This is the kind of quaint place I want to bring my kids. That said, traffic in the summer on Rt 1 is horrific, when there are sand fleas or biting flies, there is no relief and the waits for restaurants in the summer can be long. Still it's a great place.

“Warm, clean, beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Beach is beautiful and boardwalk is ideal. Rehoboth ave intersects with the boardwalk so you are close to everything

“Love Rehoboth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I've been coming to Rehoboth Beach on a regular basis for many years. I just love the smell of the air, the sounds of the seaguls, and the general atomosphere.

“A nice ocean village feel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very nice board walk area with excellent seating options. There are plenty of shopping opportunities in this town. I very much enjoyed shopping the local owned shops on Rehoboth Ave, very nice people there.

“A clean, classy and fun area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The beach is always clean! There are showers at every entrance to the beach for an easy rinse off after a fun filled day in the sun. Lifeguards are there to keep you safe. They post when currents are rough as well as water temperature. There are lots of great, local restaurants that surround Rehoboth Avenue to eat in.
