Located in the second smallest state, not known for its' tourist attractions Rehoboth Beach bills itself as the "Nation's Summer Capitol". Those not from Delaware understand this when they visit and realize the amount of Washington D.C. movers and shakers who pass through this little prize. As well as D.C., license plates common here besides Delaware are Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and even New York and a few places farther out on occasion.
A town of less than 1500 easily passes over 25,000 during the summer season, but never enough to be too big or too much for a relaxing getaway. The location pretty central on the east coast, the quaintness of the town, the long nice light powdery strip of sand, the many shops and boutiques and great eateries draw families, singles, and even a modern Gay crowd to its shore. There is also an old historical boardwalk with all the requisite beach junk/treasure from fries to salt water taffy. Rehoboth is busy enough to have a few dance spots but small enough not to lose its charm.
Besides the usual hotel motel chains, many rent rooms in converted homes, B&B's, and some stay at pricier hotels such as the Bellmoor, and The Boardwalk Plaza. From arts and crafts to musical events from Jazz to Rock and DJ, as well as a water park for the kids this is a true beach destination that doesn't oversell like some of the larger more generic destinations nearby such as Ocean City, Maryland. If you want it small, classy and cool, the Diamond state offers you its' gem.
