Delaware's Dewey Beach is a spectacular sandbar community - on one side is Rehoboth bay, and on the other side there are the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Dewey Beach itself is a small town of less than 400 people, but it has become a popular tourist destination for anyone interested in water sports and beach vacations, and is the perfect spot for a relaxing family getaway.If you get tired of Dewey Beach, which is pretty much impossible, Cape May is only 30 miles down the road and Brandywine Zoo and the historic Kalmar Nyckel Shipyard are right around the corner.

We had a great time on the Eating Rehoboth tour to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We had been to some of the restaurants before but it was fun meeting the chefs and getting some background on the food and the establishments. The food was delicious! Highly recommend! #iaterehoboth

We were looking for a new playground to try and saw this on google maps. We will be back! It's large, well maintained, a great variety of things to do, and right on the bay so you can hear the waves crashing. We had no idea this existed but now might become our favorite place!

I walk this trail morning, noon and late evenings in summer, fall, winter and spring and never tire of the endless visual delights the scenery, birds, plant and other animal life offers, In summer, I find the best time to walk is close to dusk, ie, after sunset but before pitch dark. Most others, including those speed bikers, are gone and the marsh and forest is quiet and inviting with soft light and silence.
Winter is always less trafficked and less populated and offers surprises of its own making like gorgeously "severe clear" vistas across grasses beaten down by frost and senescence,
April simply put is my favorite season when birds are migrating and noisy, green sprigs are poking up through the muck and people have not yet populated the trails with conveyances such as bicycles, baby carriages and other self powered vehicles. Listening to all the sounds of spring awakening from a deep winter chill is in itself enough reason to walk here at anytime in April. Plus, days are warmer, longer and hold the promise of yet another torridly busy beach season.
Summer, except after sunset and before dark, is the time I least walk the Gordon's Pond Trail as I am swimming at Lewes Beach on my back watching the sunset! Oh la la an experience not to be missed!
Another delightful trail to walk if you are on the Cape Henlopen side of Gordon's Pond, is the Ft Myles Trail from the Nature Center (shorter) or Fishing Pier (longer). Again, best time in Summer is just after sunset but you must walk at a good clip. Otherwise, start 30 min prior to sunset and stroll instead of "force march" your walk.
Happy walking Gordon's Pond Trail. It's a love affair without end!

Our recent vacation in Rehoboth DE, included several rides on this trail. We rode to Lewes on the trail. The trail is a pleasant flat trail thru farm country, Marsh land, residential and paved roadside paths. We often rode the trail past Lewes , & rode back to Rehoboth via the Cape Henlopen Park Bike paths and Gordons Pond Trail. This loop is about 16 miles. There is some parking at the Tanger Outlets, that are near a short path that connects to the trail. I would not recommend parking anywhere else... as merchants and residential are parking is watched closely.
Simply said... this is a great trail. If you like Rails to trails.. this is a good one.

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.
I have visited Funland a few times now and just love it. I am impressed with the history, and I love how the park is contained inside mostly but you feel like you are outside. (I have been to several other seaside parks that also do this, but Funland was the first). My favorite thing there is the haunted house, totally unique and scary but fun. I can see why the line gets so long! People know a good thing! During my visits, the haunted house doesn't open until 5 pm, if you are visiting please check the website to verify operating hours. We used tickets since we were only doing a few things, again verify on the website for your individual needs. If I remember correctly, tickets don't expire. Traffic can be tough and parking can seem impossible, we went with friends who knew the area so I can't really help with any information there. Prepare to park and walk, and be sure to heed all parking signs if you want to avoid being ticketed or towed! This is a delightful small park, you don't need all day or night unless they are super busy or you want to ride over and over, or grab some dinner, etc. We always have a good time.

My husband and I went to the Bay Center this past weekend to see Gallagher perform for Comedy at the Beach. The last time I was in the Bay Center, prior to this weekend, was for my senior prom. So, I really couldn't imagine the Bay Center being set up with a stage & seats (like a concert hall or performing arts theater). However, I was pleasantly surprised. The venue ended up being really good for an intimate comedy routine. The seating was arranged really well. I can't imagine there being a bad seat in the house with the set up. Also, with it being a smaller center, even the farthest seats from the stage--aren't bad! Besides, if you sit in the back, you have a beautiful view of the bay through the huge floor to ceiling windows inside the Bay Center.
We ended up buying tickets at the venue, the morning of the event. Since the premium seats were sold out on the Internet, we planned on getting standard seats (IF they were still available at the venue). Since they were in the midst of setting up, they discovered that they would be able to add another small side view section of premium seats. We ended up with premium seats even though we waited until the day of the event to buy tickets! WOW. Premium seats at this event meant being right up front when Gallagher sent food flying by way of his Sledge-O-Matic. Plastic tarps & ponchos were provided to the 1st couple of rows to help keep you dry/clean. Plus we were given nice printed color programs at the event. These came in handy. The show did not start until 8:30pm, however the doors opened at 7pm. Seats were 1st come 1st serve by section (with the exception of a few reserved seats). We arrived shortly after 7pm, were quickly admitted and were in our seats in no time. There was an open cash bar & Kickin' Chicken was selling food items. We skipped the food and drinks, so I cannot comment on price or quality. Even though we did not dine here prior to the show, we were glad we had arrived early. Gallagher was seen walking around the stage area before the show. He took photos and signed autographs (FREE program came in handy here) all the way up until show time. So since we go there early, we got a photo with Gallagher and an autograph. Not sure IF you would get this at a large venue, so I was glad we saw this show at the Bay Center!
Overall, we had a great experience at the Bay Center. The show ended up being really fun. We enjoyed the act and the Bay Center made the event hassle-free. Parking was fairly easy since it was off-season. During the busy beach season, parking can be more difficult in this town. So, that is one thing to consider. But, I would definitely attend another event at the Bay Center!

A sandy public beach that offers various organized sports activities every evening during the summer plus special designated areas for surfing and surf fishing.
there was a crowd walking, shopping, dining and taking pictures of the beach. In summer it is almost impossible to even walk main street in Rehoboth, never mind find a parking space. Use the shuttle. Great shops, restaurants, bars and even historic inns and hotels. We spent two days there and didn't scratch the surface. No wonder people rent for weeks at a time. Magnificent. Can't wait to return!

You can't see it until you're almost there, but it's at the end of the road! Nice open gazebo to sit in and a bench outside too. Just beautiful view of the bay. Saw a few dead Horseshoe crabs on the beach. Quiet and peaceful.

Stretching more than one mile along Rehoboth Beach, this famous boardwalk is lined with shops, restaurants and other amusements.
This is a great Boardwalk which can be very crowded in the summer. In the off season it's a lovely place to take a stroll. It's about a mile in length and if you walk the entire
Boards it gives you the opportunity to see what a cute and unique town Rehoboth is.
