Family Fun in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware!

Family Fun in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware!

When you think of a beach vacation, chances are the shores of Florida, North and South Carolina come to mind. If you think about it really hard you might even include Ocean City, Maryland.  There is a little beach town in Delaware that deserves your consideration when you start planning your next beach getaway.


Rehoboth Beach is the perfect example of a throw back beach location. With a boardwalk filled with every kind of treat you can imagine and tree lined streets creating a canopy of leaves you are not going to leave disappointed.

If your family is anything like mine by about day 3 people are growing tired of the sand that they are finding everywhere. When this happens we need to do something different than just building sandcastles. That’s where Jungle Jim’s comes in, with a lazy river and slides to keep everyone busy!

Paddle-boarding is one sport that I haven’t attempted, due to my very clumsy nature but it is extremely intriguing to me!

If you time your visit correctly October brings with it the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival. It is a 4 day event that brings in national acts as well as locally known musicians. You can check out the website here if you would like more information.

One of my friends and I were talking about her trip to Rehoboth and she kept talking about how she loved that she was able to shop ‘tax free’ while she was in town. Basically, this means when you are shopping at the local outlet mall, you won’t have to worry about paying taxes on the goodies that you find.

There is an abundance of fun to be had when you visit Rehoboth. Have you been before?
