Rehoboth Beach Real Estate

Rehoboth Beach is a city on the Atlantic Ocean along the Delaware Beaches in eastern Sussex County, Delaware, United States.

The town often bills itself as “The Nation’s Summer Capital” due to the fact that it is a frequent summer vacation destination for Washington, D.C. residents as well as visitors from Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Vacationers are drawn for many reasons, including the town’s charm and the lack of sales tax in Delaware.

Several restaurants and shops are located along the town’s main street, Rehoboth Avenue. Outside of Rehoboth Beach along Delaware Route 1 are the Tanger Outlets, which operate three locations along the highway with over 130 outlet stores.

The town has several festivals including the Sea Witch Festival, the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival,[25] and the Rehoboth Beach Autumn Jazz Festival every year.

In 2011, the city passed a smoking ban covering parks and playgrounds, but sparing the beach and boardwalk. The smoking ban was extended to the beach, boardwalk, and adjacent public areas.
