Nation's Summer Capital

The population of the city of Rehoboth Beach expands by 25,000 every summer.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Mon): see the interesting displays at Lightship Overfalls, then relax and rejuvenate at Dimitra Yoga, and then savor the flavors at Eating Rehoboth. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take a leisurely stroll along Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, then add some adventure to your tour with Coastal Kayak, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Cape Henlopen State Park.

Plan my trip to Rehoboth Beach with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

New York City to Rehoboth Beach is an approximately 4-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from New York City in August since evenings lows in Rehoboth Beach dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) early enough to drive to Washington DC.
