The East Coast places LGBT people often think of when looking to vacation are Provincetown, MA, or Cherry Grove and the Pines on Fire Island, NY. All 100% gay immersion and very expensive. If instead you’re hunting for a beautiful resort with a diverse population that is very gay friendly the place to go is Rehoboth Beach, DE which is also more affordable.
Rehoboth was “founded in 1873 as the Rehoboth Beach Camp Meeting Association by the Rev. Robert W. Todd, of St. Paul’s Methodist Episcopal Church of Wilmington, Delaware, as a site for Methodist camp meetings in the spirit of similar resorts on the New Jersey shore, such as Ocean Grove. The Camp Meeting Association disbanded in 1881, and in 1891, the location was incorporated by the Delaware General Assembly as “Henlopen City”, shortly after which it was renamed Rehoboth Beach.”
