Rehoboth Beach serves as a relaxing alternative to nearby and much more developed Ocean City, Maryland.

Situated on the Atlantic Coastal Plain, Rehoboth Beach’s weather is moderated by the Atlantic Ocean and the Rehoboth Bay.



Rehoboth Beach has a mild subtropical climate consisting of hot, humid summers and mild winters.

Reader’s Digest named the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk as “Best of America”.

This celebration of the quirky, amazing and truly extraordinary was featured in the May 2006 issue.

Additionally, AARP has named Rehoboth Beach as one of five dream towns as “Best Places to Retire”.

The town has several festivals including the Sea Witch Festival, the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival, and the Rehoboth Jazz Festival every year.

The Clear Space Theatre Company, a professional theater company, offers a year-round schedule of musical and dramatic productions in the Rehoboth Theatre of the Arts.

Dogfish Head Brewery’s original brewpub is located on the town’s main strip Rehoboth Avenue. The location has grown in years as a popular destination for American craft beer enthusiasts.


The Jolly Trolley

Grotto Pizza was founded in Rehoboth Beach in 1960 and has grown to 21 locations throughout the state of Delaware along with parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania.

In 2011, the city passed a smoking ban covering parks and playgrounds but sparing the beach and boardwalk.

Delaware Route 1 (Coastal Highway) does not enter Rehoboth Beach, instead of skirting the town to the south and west.

Delaware Route 1A crosses through Rehoboth Beach in an L shape, running from Coastal Highway along Rehoboth Avenue to 2nd Street, then south along 2nd Street, Bayard Avenue, and Silver Lake Drive to another junction with Coastal Highway in Dewey Beach.

The Jolly Trolley is a private shuttle service that provides frequent transport between Rehoboth and neighboring Dewey Beach. The Jolly Trolley also provides services to Bethany Beach.
