Boardwalkin' in Rehoboth Beach

A travel journal to Rehoboth Beach by CalvinMitch

Quote: Rehoboth bills itself as 'the Nation's Summer Capital,' due to the influx of people from DC and it's environs. A very popular destination for residents of Delaware.

Boardwalkin' in Rehoboth Beach

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
The Beach itself is the main draw. A nice boardwalk borders the beach and plenty of local color and cuisine make this an idyllic small beach town.

Quick Tips:

Traffic can be horrid on Fridays and Sunday on your way to and from the beach. Unfortunately, there is no good alternative route...

Best Way To Get Around:

Traffic in the summer is awful. The resorts burst at their seams. There are tons of parking meters around - but spaces are at a premium. It is a small beach town and easily walkable.

Grotto Pizza

Restaurant

Quote:
A traditional Delaware beach pizza place, Grotto has been around for ages. Recently, the chain has grown and now features locations throughout Delaware and into PA.

Grotto makes it's own dough and it's 'special' sauce. It is kind of a 'Margherita' style of pizza. The pizza is the reason you go to Grotto, but they also offer some pasta dishes, salads (the Chicken Caesar is great! but pricey at $6.95), as well as sandwiches and burgers.

Restaurant | "Pizza By Elizabeths"

Quote:
True gourmet pizza. A simply wonderful brick-oven fired pizza that is customizeable to the n-th degree! Choose the crust (honey-wheat, white), the toppings (a plethora to choose from), the cheese or select one off the menu. The menu pizzas are all named for famous Elizabeths (Mongomery, Taylor, etc.) The wild greens salad is delicious and the service was great. Be prepared to part with some dough of your own, however, as it is decididly not inexpensive. With my wife and child, the bill was over $60!!

Also a location in Greenville, just outside of Wilmington.

Nicola Pizza

Restaurant

Quote:
A Rehoboth tradition. Founded in 1971 and still run by the Caggiano family, Nicola specializes in Pizza (duh) and Nick-o-boli - a kind of stromboli that has ground beef, pizza sauce cheese wrapped in a dough and baked. Sorta like a cross between a pizza and a steak sandwich. Loved the pizza and loved the atmosphere. My young son loved the train that runs around the top of the restaurant. Be prepared for long lines in the summertime.

Candy Kitchen Shoppes

Attraction | "Candy Kitchen"

Quote:
A chain of candy stores spread across Ocean City, MD and the Delaware beaches. Candy Kitchen has lots of homemade goodies. My favorites include the chocolate covered strawberries, pretzels and Oreos!!

They also carry those infernal Beanie Babies and a limited number of gift items. Several locations on the Boardwalk itself as well as on Rehoboth Ave.

Funland

Attraction

Quote:
An amusement park has been in this location since the late 30's. Funland has been own and run by the same family since 1962. Primarily a kiddie amusement park, it is crammed into a lot on the boardwalk in Rehoboth. From the outside, it looks like a small warehouse. The tickets run 25 cents a piece and you will need 5 at most for one ride. Several rides only require one ticket! (kiddie rides - boats, fire engines) Also has games of chance. My favorite game was one that guaranteed a winner each time. My son thinks he has amazing skill at the game, but he has no idea how he keeps winning. Sure the rides are old (I remember riding some when I was a kid!) and it's kinda corny, but it seems ...Read More

Rehoboth Beach

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
One of the more popular beaches in the region, Rehoboth pulls 'em in, in the summer. The population swells and the beaches are crowded. Stake your claim early, and you won't be relegated to the back of the beach! A well-kept public beach, with lifeguards on duty for most of the day. Unlike some beaches in the Mid-Atlantic region, Rehoboth does not require any kind of 'beach tags' and does not charge a fee to use the beach. Parking is in metered spaces - which are VERY difficult to find in close proximity to the beach. Activities include volleyball, basketball, and a designated area for kite-flying. The water does not really warm up until July-ish, but stays balmy into October. ...Read More

Tanger Outlets

Attraction | "Rehoboth Outlets"

Quote:
A couple of years ago, Rehoboth decided that bringing in outlets would bring people to the beach in the off-season months. The outlets have proven to be even more successful than they thought.

Over 140 stores, including all the big names. Banana Republic, J Crew, the Gap, Jones NY, Ralph Lauren, Nike, Oshkosh, Reebok and lots more.

The outlets are quite busy in the summer during lousy beach days and pretty steadily busy all year round.
