Vince DiFonzo 2022 WEB

As the 2023 & 2024 Chairman of the Board for the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center, I would like to welcome you to our charming and vibrant beachside resorts.  This area has so much to offer to residents and vacationers alike.  Rehoboth Beach offers beautiful, white sandy beaches, an iconic family-friendly boardwalk, excellent tax-free shopping, and one-of-a-kind dining experiences.  Dewey Beach also has great dining, beautiful beaches, electric live music venues and spectacular sunsets over the Rehoboth Bay. The fabled dining scene throughout our area, known as “the Culinary Coast™,” ranges from freshly caught seafood, farm to table experiences, and famous boardwalk treats. 

Our goal at the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center is to make our community the best place to run a business, visit for vacation, and raise a family.  Whether it is through networking opportunities, informational programs, or our signature events such as the Sea Witch® Festival and Movies & Bonfires on the Beach, our Chamber is here to support you.

Rehoboth Beach has been recognized as one of the most desirable vacation destinations on the east coast and one of the top ten small towns to visit in the Mid-Atlantic by Recreation News.  In 2022, Fodor’s Travel Guide awarded Rehoboth Beach as having one of the Best Boardwalks in America and the Sea Witch® Festival was included in the HGTV’s “21 Great Fall Festivals” feature.  As most people know, Rehoboth Beach has gained some national attention as being President Biden’s choice for his vacation home.  It is common to see President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden bicycling the Junction and Breakwater Trail or enjoying one of the local restaurants.

Dubbed as the Nation’s Summer Capital, the Rehoboth Beach & Dewey Beach area is a top choice for vacationers and vacation home buyers, alike.  For visitors, there are several independent and national hotels that are great lodging options.  The activities are endless, including, but not limited to tax-free shopping, live music venues, fitness opportunities, local spas, art galleries, nationally recognized craft breweries, and water parks.

The Staff and Board of Directors of the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center, hope that you will not only enjoy our beachside communities during the warm summer months, but throughout the year.  We have become a year-round resort, please consider visiting in October for our popular Sea Witch® Festival, in November for tax-free Black Friday shopping, and in December for the tree lighting ceremonies, extensive holiday décor and the joy of celebrating the holidays in our beautiful beach communities. 

Looking forward to a successful and enjoyable 2024!

 Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach - Resort Area

When planning your next vacation, why not travel to the resort area of Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach, Delaware. Located on the Atlantic Coast only two hours from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, MD, or Philadelphia, PA, you can enjoy a beach resort that offers tranquility and hospitality.

The resort area provides a variety of accommodations from cozy bed and breakfasts to many fine hotels. Other options include condominiums, apartments, cottages, homes and retreat houses. Many local realtors are available to help you find the perfect accommodation for your stay. Resort eateries and restaurants offer a wide array of specialties from the catch of the day to French cuisine. Area shopping ranges from factory outlets to unique and artistic specialty shops.

It would be difficult to find another location that could match the resort area's variety and charm.

One of downtown Rehoboth's greatest assets is a mile-long boardwalk which allows for bike riding, strolling or jogging. Other activities and special events on the "boards" include miniature golf, arcades, a small amusement park, bandstand musical entertainment and numerous festivals. Here you can sit and watch the sunrise, enjoy our many migrating dolphins and our latest visitors, pelicans.

Dewey Beach to the south is a natural sandbar community that boasts an ocean on one side of the street and a bay on the other. This area is popular for water sports such as skimboarding, windsurfing, and catamaran sailing. Sunsets over the bay provide a romantic atmosphere and enhance the nightlife. Located adjacent to Dewey Beach is the Delaware Seashore State Park. Here you will find a long stretch of natural beach that offers several areas for four-wheel vehicle access and surf fishing. A popular activity is treasure hunting on the beach with metal detectors.

The resort offers beautiful white sandy beaches and natural dunes that abound with vegetation and wildlife. The surrounding beach parks offer visitors a chance to feel alone with the sand and surf. Cape Henlopen State Park offers open shoreline which is excellent for crabbing, surf fishing, swimming or walking. This beach is the home of the highest sand dune between Cape Hatteras and Cape Cod. This "great dune" rises over 80 feet above the shoreline. The park also houses the famous "walking dunes" and colonies of shorebirds. If you like to observe from above, a refurbished World War II observation tower is open to the public and is a featured stop on nature walks. In late fall Gordon's Pond offers bird lovers an opportunity to observe the many wildlife species such as osprey, piping plover, and occasionally an American bald eagle. In late spring, a little known activity includes picking a local delicacy, beach plums, used for making jelly.

The Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach small town atmosphere is a showcase for many activities held in the spring and fall of each year.
