Rehoboth Beach — Photo courtesy of baslowRehoboth Beach in Delaware is a diverse beach and boardwalk town which is a top draw for a seaside holiday due to its proximity to Washington D.C. and the rest of the eastern seaboard cities. There are plenty of reasons to visit Rehoboth, such as white sand beaches and a lovely old wooden boardwalk that was named by Reader’s Digest as “Best of America.” There are plenty of shops here to buy souvenirs in (Rehoboth offers tax-free shopping) and if the kids get restless, there is the large Funland amusement park to go play in.
Rehoboth is also popular with the gay and lesbian community, as it has many gay-owned businesses as well as a primarily gay strip of sand called Poodle Beach. There are organized sporting events on the beach each evening and it's lifeguard-patrolled at all times; there are even designated areas for surfing and surf fishing.
The American Association of Retired Persons named Rehoboth as one of the top five places to retire in; along with the seaside life, there is plenty on tap to keep people busy throughout the year. The Autumn Jazz Festival is a big draw, there is an independent film festival and the Sea Witch Halloween Festival is extremely popular and a lot of fun.
With theatre, shops, the long boardwalk and plenty of sand, it’s no wonder people keep flocking back to Rehoboth year after year - it’s got something for everyone.
