Small-Town Family Vacation in Rehoboth Beach

Overview

Quote:
I recently visited Rehoboth Beach for my summer vacation with the recommendation of my family, who had gone the year before. I absolutely loved the town of Rehoboth, filled with nice shops, cafés, and eateries. The location of the hotel was a bonus, located right in the center of the town, 2 blocks from the beach and near good eateries. I recommend the town for a good place to stroll with the kids and go to the beach. Also, try finding a hotel around the center of town; it is really great to be able to walk everywhere. The town’s relatively small size and charm is why I loved my stay there. Enjoy!Quick Tips: Note 1: Nicola’s Pizza! Make sure you try Nicola's Pizza, not Grotto's Pizza (which i...Read More

Avenue Inn

Hotel

Quote:
Although the Avenue Inn promises "luxury accommodations in the heart of the nation's summer capital," my 3-night stay did not seem luxurious or quite magnificent. I didn't find the hotel staff very helpful or friendly, but enjoyed the location of the hotel. The hotel is located right in the center of the town, nearly 2 blocks from the beach, and is surrounded by shops and great restaurants. I would recommend finding another hotel around the same area (Wilmington Avenue) for the great location what will make your vacation really worthwhile. The Avenue Inn was great for the kids with its swimming pool (which is relatively small in size) and cookies after 8pm, but I won't be returning to the Avenue I...Read More

Nicola Pizza

Restaurant

Quote:
After going to Grotto's Pizza one night, I was really happy about having Nicola's Pizza. I was really impressed by their fast service and really good food. The pizza can't compare to Grotto's, and it was fast. It was great, so make sure you stop there and then compare it to Grotto's. Also, it has low-fat food and Nicobolis, very delicious.

Grotto Pizza

Restaurant

Quote:
After arriving in Rehoboth, I saw numerous Grotto Pizza restaurants, which eventually led me go in and try their food. I saw on their menu "Voted Best in Delaware," which led me to really be expecting some good food. After getting my pizza, I wasn't that impressed.

Sure, they're better than my pizzeria around the block. I would order their pizza only for their good location, right on the boardwalk, but I would definitely go to Nicola's pizza instead.

Adriatico

Restaurant

Quote:
I really enjoyed eating at Adriatico, as the Italian food is delicious and the service is very good. The restaurant is fancy, but not too fancy. It has an outdoor eating area, which the kids love. Make sure you take advantage of the buy-one-entrée, get-one-free offer. It will save you some money on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Make sure you eat there if you get a chance!
