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.

Celebrate Independence Day!

Independence Day

Break out the red, white and blue, baby, because it’s here - the ‘big daddy’ of summer holidays - Independence Day! When it comes to this sparkling and illustrious occasion, Rehoboth Beach is no slouch and we guarantee you will have a most memorable experience. Here is the scoop regarding the holiday happenings taking place in town on the BIG night! 

On Friday, July 4 at approximately 9:15 p.m, a spectacular fireworks extravaganza, hosted by Rehoboth Beach Main Street (RBMS), will be launched from the beach. This dazzling display will be visible up and down the boardwalk and shoreline so grab your blanket or beach towel and come down a little early to snatch up a great spot. Catch a live concert with the Funsters, who will perform at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand before and after the fireworks. For easy transportation in and out of town, the Jolly Trolley and DART buses will run from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. 

The Annual Main Street Fireworks Display is funded entirely through donations from Rehoboth Beach visitors, citizens and area businesses. To be a part of this wonderful community event please visit the RBMS website to donate and help make this year’s show the biggest ever! 

The rain date is Saturday, July 5. The decision to reschedule will be made late Friday afternoon and updated information will be posted on the RBMS website.

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday!

Summertime Staples: Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk and Jolly Trolley

Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk

Well, we made it through one of the roughest winters (and spring for that matter) in recent history. The kids are finally out of school and the solstice on Saturday, June 21 marks the meteorological start to summer! Now we can get down to the business of beaching, boardwalking and all-around vacationing. 

Break out your kicks and start your day with an early morning walk on the boards (true early birds can bask in a glorious ocean sunrise). The Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk is one mile long, so go the distance and back and you’ll get a great workout. While the middle of the boardwalk is buzzing with activity, the residential south end is quite serene allowing the beauty of the dunes to quietly stand out. 

The boardwalk never disappoints as far as fun and entertainment are concerned. As the day progresses, the action increases and you will find yourself inundated with options - dining, drinks, shopping, and of course, Funland, where there are rides, games and arcades for kids of all ages. Go ahead, take a chance and win that 6-foot stuffed pink bear. Next winter when it is staring at you from the corner of the playroom, you’ll remember the warm summer night you played Whack-A-Mole for an entire hour to win it! 

Need to get around town? The best mode of transportation is the Jolly Trolley, Rehoboth Beach's original mass transit system. For a nominal fee you can buzz around town or visit neighboring Dewey Beach. The open air shuttle is a fun way to travel and it certainly lives up to the claim “’tis the season to be jolly.” 

Did you know you can get a dose of local Rehoboth Beach history via the Jolly Trolley? Jolly Trolley History Tours are offered throughout the summer. The next tour is Thursday, June 19 and starts at 9:00 a.m. at the Anna Hazzard House at 17 Christian Street. The cost is $10 (cash only). Sit back, relax and learn a little something something about everyone's favorite beach town.
