What is there to do in Rehoboth Beach?

1) The beach is the big draw. Itís a lovely, wide, and clean respite from the honky-tonk of
the Jersey shore. Our boardwalk is not as loud or as big as what youíll find in, say,
Wildwood, Of course we have pizza joints and souvenir shops because whatís a day at the
beach without a snack and a T shirt?  What I like about our beach is that it isnít all built up
with large hotels taking up the prime rays. Many local street run right up to the boardwalk,
and there are some homes set back, and a few large hotels at one end, but mostly itís small
scale and homey.

2) Rehoboth Beach has a great variety of restaurants for a town our size. Baltimore Ave is
becoming our Restaurant Row. Of course, seafood is popular, but thereís the usual
American dining classics, Italian, Caribbean and French options. If you like beach-side
dining, Victoriaís  at the Plaza Hotel is a reasonably-priced restaurant with outdoor seating
and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

3) Tax-free shopping is another big draw. The Tangers Outlets are the biggest along Rt 1.
They are three separate clusters of shops called Tanger Midway, Tanger Seaside, and
Tanger Bayside. Youíll find Ann Taylor, Tommy Hilfilger, Le Gourmet Chef, London Fog,
Mikasa, Music For A Song, The Fragrance Outlet, Old Navy, Wilsonís Leather Outlet,
and a hundred other shops. Thereís s smaller outlet mall called QVC Outlet at the
lighthouse Plaza on Rt 1 for all you TV shopping fans.

4) Every autumn, thereís the Delaware celebration of Jazz founded by Syndeyís Blues &
Jazz Restaurant at 25 Christian St. Many Rehoboth restaurants have great music all year
round. Thatís what makes strolling around town a great evening activity Ė you get to sample
lots of bands.

5) Last and certainly not least, people watching on the beach and the boardwalk is a
perennial favorite, especially if youíre single. Itís always fun to see pretty girls and buff guys
in their swimsuits and to hone your pick-up lines. Summer can get kind of rowdy on the
weekends, but crowds are mostly well-behaved.
