September 26, 2021 Elouise Mccaul

Enjoy an old-fashioned beach vacation, complete with a boardwalk, at one of Delaware's most popular resort towns. Long a traditional summer getaway for families, Rehoboth Beach is now also a favorite of gay and lesbian travelers. Serious golfers will want to test their skills at the Kings Creek Country Club, while Old Landing Golf Course offers great views of the local scenery. Along with enjoying the famous beach and strolling the boardwalk, there's also a nearby amusement park called Funland to check out.

The Joni Mitchell song “Big Yellow Taxi” has a line that goes: “They took all the trees, they put them in a tree museum They charged the people a dollar and a half just to see them.” Anyone who has been coming to Rehoboth since the before-time (pre-outlets) must be as horrified as I am about the rampant development and destruction of natural resources that has occurred here. What used to be a peaceful little town on the ocean is forever a booming mini-metropolis surrounded by the blight of commercialism and developers’ greed. Mercifully, an oasis remains. Henlopen Acres, a heavily deed-restricted community, is home to a property that has stood nearly unchanged since the mid-1700’s. We are fortunate that the Corkran family in 1938 left behind the legacy of the Rehoboth Art League. The ancient home and barn, while maintaining their historic integrity, have been repurposed into gallery and studio space, respectively. Just down the hill is a more recently constructed gallery that blends organically into the bucolic pine forest. All around, it is a refreshingly stark contrast to the madness only minutes away. Open year round, visitors can gaze at a continually changing exhibit of local artwork, much of it well-curated, and of high quality. Nearly every piece is for sale, and at surprisingly reasonable prices. There are also special events here like the RAL Outdoor show in August, and the Cottage Tour, one of the town’s best happenings. Visitors should take a break from the beach, boardwalk, and shops, and come visit the tranquil surroundings of the Rehoboth Art League. It will remind you why this area has been a getaway from hectic life for over 300 years.

Have been here several times now, and had another great experience. Lisa especially worked on my left back and shoulder/scapula, at my request, really helped work out the knots. Deep pressure right where I needed it. Also offered some good advice on stretches and tools I could use to keep that area looser. Very reasonable price too for a 1 hour massage - between the expertise and quality and cost, it is an excellent value for a deep tissue massage. Some spa places have an automatic 18-20% gratuity, which bothers me (no matter how good the service); One Spirit is a place that makes me happy to tip generously, and eager to return.

Indian River Life-Saving Station Museum at Delaware Seashore State Park

The Indian River Life-Saving Station Museum is a historic site located within Delaware Seashore State Park. Self-guided tours of the museum are offered year round and provide visitors with the opportunity to learn about the history of the United States Life-Saving Service, precursor to the current day U.S. Coast Guard.Not only is the Indian River Life-Saving Station open for tours, it also acts as the "hub" for all educational and recreational programs held within Delaware Seashore State Park. Programs cover a wide range of topics and activities from local maritime history to guided kayak tours.

My wife and I visited the Life Saving Station Museum at Indian River recently. The fee is nominal to get in and is worth it to help keep this historic site available to the public. We learned a lot about what these surfmen did and how they saved those people shipwrecked off the coast. We learned their techniques and the equipment they used. A tour of the building gave us a first hand view on what their lives were like. Great place.

The Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk is a great place to walk, bike, skate, or sit and people watch. It’s right on the ocean, with great views of the Atlantic Ocean. The boardwalk is loaded with dining, shopping, and more. I highly recommend a stroll.

Funland

Funland is a family amusement center located on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. A family owned and operated business since 1962, Funland provides family fun at reasonable prices for those who visit us each summer. The park offers great entertainment for the whole family, featuring 19 rides, 14 midway games, a redemption center, Skeeball, and an arcade. Our season begins Mother's Day Weekend and runs through Labor Day. In the early part of our season (May into June), our closing time varies; we reserve the right to close early due to factors such as weather and lack of crowds! Normally in season, July 4th - Labor Day, we close around 11 PM.

We were very happy that Funland opened the park in time for our trip to Rehobeth. Funland is limiting the amount of customers by requiring you to purchase wristbands prior to arriving at the park. Every ride has a hand sanitizer station and all of the ride operators did a great job making sure every rider sanitized their hands and were wearing facemask before they were allowed onto the individual ride. The lines at Funland are greatly reduced being that the park is restricting the amount of customers through the wristband program. We still had to wait to ride some of the rides but the wait times were drastically improved from normal operating conditions. The only ride that was not available that we normally ride was the SIM ride. I imagine that there would be no good way to enforce social distancing on that ride. Over all I give the owners and staff of Funland very high marks. Funland took the current health concerns very seriously and was able to provide a good time at the park. Thank you Funland for keeping our family tradition alive in these difficult times.
