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 specialities 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.
