A Message from the CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce

Monty 2.Web

As the 2019 & 2020 Chairman of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce and on behalf of the Chamber, I am excited to welcome you, your family, and your friends to our wonderful and charming beachside resort. Our beautiful boardwalk, white sand beaches, excellent shopping, and some of the best dining in the region await you. You will also find plenty of magnificent independent and national hotels that offer outstanding options for lodging...we hope that you will visit and fall in love with the area just as so many of us that call this home have done.

The Rehoboth Beach & Dewey Beach area offers so much for so many, and we are confident that you will find it the ideal vacation spot for yourself and your family members of all ages. Our beaches are consistently ranked among the top in the country. There are numerous entertainment options to enjoy such as water parks, amusements, live music venues, water activities on the Rehoboth Bay, tax-free shopping, art galleries, museums, spectacular bike trails, world renown craft breweries to tour, historical points of interest and local events. Rehoboth Beach is known as the Nation’s Summer Capital, with many from the Nation’s Capital finding this a wonderful place to spend their summers. Dewey Beach is a small town surrounded on one side by the Atlantic Ocean, and two blocks to the West by the Rehoboth Bay. Dewey is famous for its nightlife, live music, and growing family-town atmosphere. The beach, bay, and town are loaded with fun events for all ages. The entire resort area is bicycle friendly with phenomenal new bike trails. Don’t forget about our beaches at the State Parks, which are open to everyone with some offering the ability for drive-on surf fishing or family beach time.

Each of our beach communities along the coast are varied and delightful in their own way. It’s a very friendly area and I’d advise you to speak with the locals, from local restaurant employees, to those working in our numerous retails shops for suggestions on their favorite spots. It’s always best to learn what “not to miss” from someone who lives here, either year-round or for the summer season. This area has grown into a year-round resort thanks to countless activities not only during the warm summer months, but throughout the shoulder seasons. The Sea Witch Festival® in October always fills our area, in addition to chocolate festivals, sidewalk sales, sand castle contests, Fourth of July fireworks on the beach, and even a military recognition weekend with Beach Goes Red, White & Blue! The holidays are always bright with our area filled with lights, tree lighting ceremonies, and all the tax-free shopping you can handle.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and ask you to please tell your friends and family of the beautiful, charming, and vibrant beach area you visited where there truly is something for everyone of all ages. Please enjoy reading our 2019 Visitors Guide which we’ve put together for your convenience. You will find this Guide full of fabulous ideas and event listings on how to spend your time. I hope you leave here excited to make a return trip as you establish some new traditions of visiting the Rehoboth Beach & Dewey Beach area with your family and friends for years to come. It’s truly a very special place to us all, thank you for visiting!

 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.
