I love this little beach town. I always feel safe waking around day or night. There are bike rentals, beach equipment rentals, and lots to do. We rented a house for the week and loved every minute of it.

Wonderful beach to have a relaxing day on the beach even with two 13 year olds! Plenty for them to do, then go to the boardwalk and play in the arcade, then back in the water.

Every morning the machines are out cleaning the sand. A nice clean beach. We like it since from the boardwalk the walk to the water isn't so far. You can rent chairs and umbrellas right on the beach.

way too crowded by the boardwalk. Go to Dewey or bethany for more friendly beaches. Parking is a pain in Downtown Reboth, you need to get change, the meters don't accept credit cards.

Rehoboth maintains its small resort town charm, bringing couples, groups and families back year after year. Plenty of excellent restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining, great shops, ice cream, and of course plenty of bars and t-shirts too.

I have visited Rehoboth Beach many times, & always enjoyed it. Between the great beach, excellent restaurants & close by outlets, it's the place to be. Always something going on. Favorite hotel is Boardwalk Plaza, favorite restaurant is Victoria's.

We loved visiting Rehoboth! It's not quite as commercialized as some beaches, but I can see it moving that way
