I was stationed at Dover back in the early 80s. We would hit Rehoboth every day we had off in the summer. Back then maybe 2 blocks were of retail. So we thought we would go and revisit my old stomping grounds. Holy cow. Packed. I mean REALLY packed. Forget trying to get a parking spot. And if you do, make sure you bring a roll of quarters ( there are some machines that make change-only we didnt know that as it wasnt obvious but they are in the center islands). There are blocks and blocks of retail and eateries. The sidewalks are so packed you can barely walk especially in the evening hours. Hungry to sit down for dinner? You might want to get a snack for the 45 min-1 hr wait. They have erected a gazebo where there is some sort of nightly enterainment, which is nice except it creates a logjam to the boardwalk. The beaches are ridiculously packed. We decided to head to one of the state park beaches (Seashores instead) where we had ample parking, had elbow room with shower facilities, bathrooms and a snack bar. We also didnt have to fuss about feeding a meter all day. So..sadly I wont go back to Rehoboth Beach to eat or to beach. I guess it would be ok if you got a place ON the beach to stay but we didnt so it is what it is.
