activities in rehoboth beach delaware


 
T he largest of Delaware's Atlantic resorts traces its origins to 1873, when the grounds of the Rehoboth Beach "Camp Meeting Association of the M.E. Church" were established. Fishing, swimming, basketball and volleyball, beachcombing and strolling the mile-long boardwalk are just a few of the activities on the beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Off the beach, Rehoboth Beach offers bandstand concerts, a convention center, shops of all kinds, outlet shopping, restaurants, amusements, and an exciting nightlife.

Many Rehoboth Beach events, including the Sea Witch Halloween Festival & Fiddler's Convention in late October, the world famous Punkin Chunkin' contest in early November, and this year, the renewal of the old Fourth of July celebration complete with fireworks, dot the calendar.
