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

Monty 2.Web

As 2021 begins, we are all hopeful and excited for a return to normalcy. In the past year, our beloved community has encountered unique challenges and persevered.  Our local businesses have found new and innovative ways to keep our residents & visitors safe and active.  Recently, many have discovered that Coastal Delaware is a unique paradise for anyone seeking solitude and an escape from the hustle and bustle of City life.  We have strength in our small size and dedication to supporting local entrepreneurship. 

I encourage residents and visitors alike to enjoy an adventure with family and friends in “The Nation’s Summer Capital.”  Our many walking and biking trails, such as the Junction & Breakwater Trail, showcase miles of incredible views, offer top-tier bird watching opportunities, and merge our beach towns into an easily accessible network.  Moreover, our local State Parks highlight Southern Delaware’s beautiful and pristine natural scenery.  Finally, our alluring beaches, often considered our community’s primary attractions, boast some of the most unspoiled water and sand along the East Coast!
  
Each of our neighborhoods offer their own magic and charm, and our community provides countless amenities and opportunities for guests.  Visitors can choose from enjoying a sunset on the Rehoboth Bay, a stroll along Rehoboth Beach’s scenic Boardwalk or Avenue, enjoy an evening movie on Dewey Beach, soak up the sun on our beautiful coastline, experience outdoor dining and fantastic cuisine at a unique restaurant, tour a premier local brewery, relax for a day at the spa, or sign up for a yoga class.  Our Resort Area offers something for everyone! 
 
I am honored to be the Chairwoman of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce for 2021.  As a born-and-raised local, my favorite elements of our area include our many shops, restaurants, and fitness opportunities.  I adore our closely knit community, and I am so proud that we have been able to band together to move forward into 2021.  By working as a team, we will continue to grow even stronger.  My hope is that this guide will help you immerse yourself into the culture and life of our one-of-a-kind region.  Cheers to a healthy, safe, and flourishing 2021!  Enjoy staying small.

 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.
