Summer may be coming to a close – but its not over yet. For those of you who haven’t made it to the beach, your summer may not be complete without that final trip to Rehoboth Beach. 

Before school comes back into session, and before the days become a bit cooler, the last few sun-soaked weeks are begging to be put to good use. 

A few extra days in the nations summer capital, can really top off the season. Bring the kids or hang with friends, this small beach town has fun-filled activities for all. 

Take a group bike ride down the local streets and parks. Hit up the fresh seafood restaurants after a long day at the beach. End your night dancing in the moonlight at the Boardwalk Bandstand. The summer days and summer nights in Rehoboth Beach are endless. 

Don’t let this gorgeous season pass to quickly. Whether you plan your beach vacation, or get in the car today, rest assured that your summer will end in a memorable way.

Labor Day Doesn’t Mean Summer is Over Yet

Labor Day

Yeah, sure, Labor Day typically marks the “official” end to the summer season, but locals know that September is the BEST month at the beach. Just because the kiddos are back to school, it doesn’t mean you can’t plan a weekend visit to Rehoboth Beach. Crowds are smaller and weather is perfect for outdoor activities - just remember to pack your jacket for slightly cooler evenings. 

Parking permits are no longer required after Labor Day weekend and parking meters come down mid-month, so parking in town is a breeze. All your favorite shops and restaurants are still open and the Jolly Trolley continues to run on weekends so you can easily buzz around town or visit neighboring Dewey Beach to check out the music festivals held throughout the month. 

Additionally, the beach remains guarded until the third weekend of September, so you can be assured that you and your family can "beach" safely. 

In the meantime, for those of you that are lucky enough to be on vacation this last week of August, be sure to drop by The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand on Thursday, August 28 at dusk (8:15 – 8:30 pm) to watch Frozen, the final movie of the 2014 Cinema By the Surf summer outdoor film series. The event is free and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
