My family had a place just minutes outside of Rehoboth for about 30 or so years, so needless to say, I've practically grown up there. Up until about 5 or 10 years ago, this was the best place to go for a relaxing family getaway. It was predominately friendly, middle-class families, couples, and gays. The boardwalk would get crowded especially... More

It is on the Atlantic Ocean so you have to watch your children and yourself because it can be pretty rough but saying that, you can... More

Our first time to Rohobeth and really enjoyed it. Crowded, as we expected, for Memorial Day weekend but teen and pre-teen enjoyed the sand, sun and people watching. A little dirty but thats on the visitors as there's several trash cans available. Could also rent chairs and umbrellas but we didn't so don't know the cost. Will be back.

Rehoboth Beach is a great place for fun in the sun. Boardwalk has all you could wish for including food, entertainment and rides for the kids. Local restaurants are excellent. Wonderful shopping. There are two or three very fine hotels if you really look (ie. Bellmoor, Avenue). The downside: 1) very crowded beach and 2) raunchy, noisy nightlife with loud... More

Even after the hurricane and storms over the last few years, the Beach looks terrific and ready for business. I'm not much of a beach-goer, but thoroughly enjoyed walked and picking up seashells and dipping my toes into the cold ocean! Was really happy to see it more as a family beach with young children with parents and grandparents! The... More

Really nice beach, great place to go after a lot of shopping! Relaxing! It was winter so I can't say anything about the water...

This place seems to be much slower then ocean city, and in our opinion that is a good thing. There are more homes the hotel so that cuts the number of people here. It's cleaner then ocean city. The crowd is older. Would much rather come here then oc, but then again we are older.

One of the cleanest beaches I've ever been to. It's a nice size beach and easy to get to. I've been here several times and its never been overly crowded. I never see trash on the beach. The views are amazing. Very relaxing and peaceful. There are parking lots with free parking that are easy to access.

The beach is nice, but the boardwalk is really what makes this beach special. It has lots of souvenir stores, ice cream shops, and restaurants. We had a good time - got henna tattoos, salt water toffee, deep fried Oreos, dinner, and watched the ocean. Great for relaxing or for having fun. Definitely worth a visit.
