Attractions in Rehoboth Beach

Experience a little culture on your gaycation.

Gallery 50

Gallery 50 is all about repping emerging and mid-career regional artists and showing mad love for the up-and-comers. Each exhibition, they shine the spotlight on one artist, but you can also peep works by other represented artists. And get this — they even host book and poetry readings, book signings, and film screenings.

Rehoboth Beach Historical Society & Museum

The Rehoboth Beach Museum in Delaware is a real gem, showcasing the town’s fascinating history through artifacts, exhibits, and educational initiatives. Visitors can dive into the community’s development and unique heritage, all on a voluntary donation basis.


This one is for the dads — not to be confused with daddies or zaddies — traveling with little ones. Funland on Rehoboth Beach’s boardwalk is the place to be! It’s a family-owned amusement park with a mix of classic rides and games that’s suitable for kids of all ages. Plus, it’s famous for its old-fashioned carousel and arcade.

Rehoboth Art League

The Rehoboth Art League is like a treasure trove for art lovers! You’ll find a mix of art galleries with permanent collections and ever-changing exhibits. It’s nestled on a historic 3.5+ acre campus in Henlopen Acres, DE, just a mile from downtown Rehoboth Avenue. There are multiple buildings, including the iconic Peter Marsh Homestead from 1743. Don’t miss the historic formal garden and fun events like the Cottage Tour of Art and Outdoor Fine Art and Fine Craft Show.

Delaware Seashore State Park

Delaware Seashore State Park is a big deal along the southern Delaware coastline. The Indian River Inlet is the heart of the action, connecting the Indian River and Rehoboth Bays with the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a beach on either side of the inlet, ready to welcome anglers and beachgoers for some fun in the sun. Plus, the Indian River Life-Saving Station, built in 1876, has gone from saving ships to serving looks as a coastal event space and educational center. The barrier beach and inland bays make it a prime spot for birds and terrapins, while over seven miles of trails are waiting for hikers, bikers, and birders to come and explore!

Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk

Rehobothians have a complicated relationship with their Boardwalk, but as a visitor, let me tell you, the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk is where all the fun and relaxation collide! Picture this: you play a few arcade games, indulge in a mouthwatering slice of Grotto Pizza, dive into a bucket of vinegar-topped fried spuds at Thrasher’s French Fries (carb heaven, trust me), or treat yourself to some frozen custard from Kohr Bros. And then, my friend, you can soak in the dreamy views and take a leisurely stroll to walk off those delicious calories. Seriously, it’s hands down one of the prettiest boardwalks in the whole USA! Oh, and don’t forget to end your day with a free concert at the Rehoboth Beach bandstand – they always have awesome live performances during the peak season. Now, that’s what I call a perfect day at the beach!

Zwaanendael Museum

The museum is located in nearby Lewes, Delaware. It pays homage to the early Dutch settlers who established the Zwaanendael Colony in the 17th century. The museum’s architecture is a nod to the City Hall in Hoorn, Netherlands. Visitors can delve into exhibits highlighting Delaware’s colonial history, with a special focus on Dutch influence. Artifacts, documents, and displays offer insight into the cultural and historical aspects of the region, making it a must-visit for those intrigued by early American and Dutch colonial history. The museum is named after the ship “Zwaanendael,” which brought the Dutch settlers to the area in 1631.

Poodle Beach

If you’re one of those gays, this is the place to be during the day. Just south of the Boardwalk, crowded as all hell, and just what you want. To find Poodle Beach, here’s what you gotta do. Head to the boardwalk, and when you see that majestic ocean in front of you, make a right turn. Keep walkin’ till you reach the end of the boardwalk, which conveniently goes by the name Queen Street. And trust me, you won’t miss it. Just look for a crowd of speedo-wearing guys and a party of colorful umbrellas. Follow the pop music, and BAM! You’ve arrived at your sandy destination.

North Shores (Gordon’s Pond) Beach

Located about a mile north of the boardwalk, lesbians will feel more at home at this beach. Refugees from the Poodle Beach scene (mainly the bear crowd) can be found here too. But be warned, you’ll need a car to get to it.

Nanticoke Indian Museum

Locted in nearby Millsboro, Delaware is a real gem! It’s all about preserving and promoting the history and traditions of the Nanticoke Indian Tribe. You can explore their rich heritage, check out artifacts, crafts, and artworks, and learn all about their cultural practices and contributions to the region. The museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the Native American history of the Delmarva Peninsula!
