Five Great Things to Do in Rehoboth Beach
1. Browse the Boardwalk
The East Coast is famous for its awesome beachside boardwalks, and Rehoboth Beach is no exception. It's a classic and classy boardwalk, with a feel like it was transported out of an older, simpler time. There are plenty of curio shops and family-run eateries, not to mention the beautiful water close by. Be sure to check out the historic bandstand, with its cool early-60s vibe.
A trip to Rehoboth Beach just isn't complete with a visit to Funland, its world-famous amusement park. Continually operated since 1962, Funland has 19 rides, carnival-style games, a full arcade, shopping, and much more. You could easily spend a day here, before retiring to the beach for a quiet - or romantic - evening.
3. Gordon's Pond
Want to get away from the bustle of tourists? Gordon's Pond is a free nature preserve, with both biking and hiking trails. The best part is the elevated walkway over the pond itself, where you can glimpse all manner of water life as well as plenty of native birds.
4. Tanger Outlets
On the other hand, are you looking to get your shop on? Tanger Outlets are only a couple miles from the beach and features more than 100 outlet shops as well as plenty of food options. Oh, and did we mention that Delaware doesn't charge sales tax?
5. Jungle Jim's
If you prefer your water fun to be a bit more controlled - and chlorinated - then you need to visit Jungle Jim's. It's the largest waterpark in Delaware, with dozens of exciting attractions, as well as a full minigolf course. This is the perfect place to take the family to cool off.
