So Many Fun Things to Do
While it has a reputation as a magnet for partygoers in the summer months, Dewey Beach is also a popular family resort spot, beloved for its wide, sandy beaches, fun for all ages, great food and watersports.
Dewey Beach lies on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay and is about a mile long and two blocks wide. Despite its small size and low year-round population of about 300, it is not uncommon for 30,000 visitors to descend upon the town during summer weekends.
The town hosts a number of special events, among them, the annual East Coast Skimboarding Championships, in mid-August.
Dewey is less than 2 miles from Rehoboth Beach. In addition to the magnificent shoreline and historic boardwalk, visitors love the variety of things to do in Rehoboth Beach as well.
The charming mile-long boardwalk is one of the city’s best attractions, consistently voted one of America’s best boardwalks in virtually every travelogue that has considered the question. The boardwalk features quaint shops, restaurants, family amusements, art galleries, gazebo concerts, and more. You’ll find yourself going again and again to cover it all.
You’ll find everything from unique treasures at charming boutiques, chotchkes, knick knacks, and T-shirt shops all a short stroll away in downtown Rehoboth Beach. For fashion essentials, venture to Tanger Outlets just 2 miles away, where you can enjoy tax-free savings on all of your purchases.
A bike will get you to most attractions in Rehoboth in minutes. Bikes are allowed on the boardwalk from 5 a.m. – 10 a.m. from May 15th through September 15th and any time through the rest of the year, and bike tours are offered too.
From Baywood Greens to Beartrap Dunes to The Rookery Club, nearby Rehoboth Beach has some of the most intricately designed golf courses on the east coast. Get inspired by the ocean breeze and easily find the perfect golf experience for your game.
Anglers flock to our beaches for the miles of open water and great fishing spots. These include the Fishing Pier at Cape Henlopen State Park, the Indian River Inlet, or surf-fishing from our many state beaches. Charter and head boat fishing is very popular in the area; There are many options for a day out on the water at the Indian River Marina or in Lewes, DE.
Take a break from stress and commune with nature at one of several state parks (Cape Henlopen, Gordon’s Pond, Delaware Seashore) that offer miles of trails, historic sites, and Instagram-worthy views of the inland Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
For history buffs, there are a number of museums covering things like American Art, Aviation, Shipwrecks, Carriages, Nanticote Indian history, and area history, such as the Fort Miles Museum & Historic Area.
