enjoy relaxing on the beach, swimming in the Atlantic Ocean or strolling along the 1mile boardwalk
You can definitely walk for free, but there is an arcade and lots of shops that will get your kids attention. The beach is right there and there are water spigots to rinse sand off, but for real beach access go north to the State Park (entrance fee $8). Very uncrowded, but you can still rent a beach umbrella. Only portapotties in the parking lot though.
Make sure to bring lots of sunscreen, a cooler full of food, and towels! You'll want to plan to stay all day. Most of the parking is metered, so bring a card to pay with. There are tons of shops and eateries along the boardwalk. You'll definitely want to check out some of the ice cream places. The beach is very well kept, although it can be busy at times.
I am no expert on beaches, but I just loved the feel of this beach. It reminded me of beaches in California. The boardwalk offered many shops and food establishments to visit. There is no charge to go into the beach area the only charge is to park, which is fairly cheap. It is also nice in that the parking meters allow you to use your credit card to pay. This is great for people who do not want to carry lots of change to the beach. It is definitely geared toward a young crowd, but families also seem to fit in well. The beach itself is a bit stony so I suggest some water footwear.
I enjoy everything about relaxing in Rehoboth. Start your day off early with a bike ride. Don't. Have a bike? No worries rent one right on the boardwalk. After that ride relax by the ocean. Take in the sun while you eat the famous beach fries just keep an eye on the seagulls they love fries too.
My family visited Rehoboth Beach several years ago. We made it a day trip from Maryland (DC-metro area). It was a great opportunity to spend the day on the beach, do a little shopping at some cute shops and have dinner on the boardwalk. I'm sure we'll do it again as our youngest gets a little older.
