Rehoboth is very welcoming and family friendly! The area is laid back and unpretentious. There is a variety of food and services available throughout the town at reasonable prices! The weather is calm and cool most of the year. You can experience the most beautiful sunsets. There is a fun little bar for locals and business travelers alike The Pond is a fun little bar offering delicious Tacos and fun games encouraging their patrons to interact. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about their town.
I love the beach. Once you get sand in your shows it's hard to move. People are friendly and we have a wide diversity of people that live here. Years ago not much happened around here after labor day but now there are so many off season activities all the time. The down side to that is that there is more traffic around here in the off season. I love living near the beach, even if there is traffic I can choose to either fight the traffic or not. Because I live here I can either go out & enjoy where I live now or later.
