Come summer, it's time to pack your bags and head for Rehoboth Beach.

Located in the southern part of Delaware in Sussex County, Rehoboth Beach is one of the main attractions of this small state.

Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth's origins as a beach resort date back to the 19th Century when the "Rehoboth Beach Camp Meeting Association of the Methodist Episcopal Church" was established here in January 1873 for summer religious gatherings.

With the extension of the railroad to Rehoboth in the late 1870s, Rehoboth Beach attracted more visitors. Soon, the seaside attractions eclipsed the original religious aspects of the town.

From such humble beginnings has grown Rehoboth Beach into one of the most popular beach resorts on the East Coast of USA.

There is a nice mile-long boardwalk lined by restaurants, ice cream stores, hotels, Pizza outlets and more.

There are two other beaches close by as well.

Lewes Beach is a few miles north of Rehoboth while Dewey is just a little distance to the south.

Like Rehoboth, Dewey and Lewes beaches also offer fine dining and entertainment options.

As with most tourist attractions, Delaware's three beaches can become very crowded over the weekends. Our advice is to head there during the week, if you can.
