Rehoboth Beach, DE
A lively neighbor to the south, Rehoboth Beach is a fabulous oceanfront retreat, and a delight for young and old. Rehoboth which means "room for all," features gorgeous stretches of beach, gourmet restaurants, a lively music/bar scene, upscale specialty shops, lots of kitschy boardwalk shops and a boardwalk amusement park (Funland) and the Rehoboth Art League.

Rehoboth/Dewey Chamber of Commerce
Rehoboth Beach Bandstand Schedule - Right next to the boardwalk on Rehoboth Avenue. A perfect ending to a day at the beach with your kids. Grab a soft serve ice cream or some Thrasher's Fries and settle in for some rollicking good live music. (Bring your jacket -sometimes it's a bit breezy in the evening).
Mosaic Rehoboth - a small band of Rehoboth Beach gallery owners got together to form this collective. They host "Second Saturdays" with receptions at each gallery from 6 to 9 pm on the second Saturday of each month.
Continuing south, Dewey Beach is known for its friendly beaches and "laid back" lifestyle. Bay sports and a bustling nightlife are a big draw to this small coastal hot spot. Traveling further south, you'll find "The Quiet Resorts" of Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island. These tranquil seaside towns are best described by the relaxing family atmosphere, which is enjoyed by year 'round residents and visitors alike.
