As a person born and raised in Delaware, I’d like to think I’m an expert on Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. I mean, I DID work at Funland and Grotto Pizza for 4 summers!
Rehoboth is still one of my favorite places to visit, and there’s so much to do in the downtown area. Not to mention its proximity to the outlets, Lewes, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, and the occasional day trip to Ocean City, MD.
But as a start, here’s a quick list of my favorite things to do at the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk (and very close vicinity!).

For an article about the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk, this obviously has to be the first “to do” listed, amirite?
A stroll down the mile-long boardwalk is the most essential “Rehoboth activity” you could find!
It’s a clean boardwalk, with two public bathroom areas (one near the lifeguard stands when you turn left on the boardwalk, and the other near Funland).
You’ll find all sorts of shops, restaurants, bike rental shops, and the like peppered all up and down the boardwalk. It’s a fun way to people watch and get your steps in!
Whether you have kids or you’re a kid at heart, you’ve gotta pay a visit to Funland.
This family-owned amusement park is the perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening.
You can find all sorts of carnival games for kids and adults, a fun bumper cars ride, the Sea Dragon (my fave), and a spooky haunted house!
If your energy starts to wane, you’re in luck because there are tons of great little coffee shops in Rehoboth Beach near the boardwalk!
Some of my favorites are:
The Coffee Mill – you can find upwards of 50 different flavored beans to take home, in addition to fresh coffee drinks make to order!
Cafe a Go-Go – with a new location just a block off the boardwalk, you can easily grab a coffee and snack. If you get one thing here, let it be the Cortadito coffee. I dream about it! And for non coffee drinkers, try the Azteca hot chocolate!
The whole downtown Rehoboth Beach boardwalk area is jam packed with great shopping. What I love most about it is that the stores are mostly all owned by locals, so you won’t find tons of chain stores. You can hit the outlets for that.
But you’ll find great shopping along the boardwalk, up and down both sides of Rehoboth Avenue, and in nooks and alleyways.
You can pick up some great Rehoboth and Dewey logo gear at Sunsations or one of the other gift shops. You can find cute beachy decorations and books at Browseabout Bookstore (my favorite!).
You can’t pass up checking out all of the cute shops at the beach!
If you aren’t already hyped enough from your coffee, check out the myriad of ice cream options at the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.
If you’re looking for variety, The Ice Cream Store on the corner of the boardwalk and Rehoboth Ave has hundreds of flavors to enjoy!
Kohrs Brothers serves up creamy soft serve and custard.
Royal Treat is the place to go for the friendliest service and best sundaes.
And check out Rita’s if you’re in the mood for water ice!
