Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
Rehoboth Beach was founded in 1873 as the Rehoboth Beach Camp Meeting Association by the Rev. Robert W. Wood, of the St. Paul’s Methodist Episcopal Church of Wilmington, DE, as a site for the Methodist Camp Meetings in the spirit of similar resorts on the New Jersey shore. The Camp Meeting Association disbanded in 1881, and in 1891, the location was incorporated by the Delaware General Assembly as “Henlopen City”, and shortly after was renamed Rehoboth Beach.
Rehoboth Beach often bills itself as “The Nation’s Summer Capital” due to the fact it is a frequent summer vacation destination for Washington, D.C. residents as well as Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Vacationers are drawn for many reason, including the town’s charm, artistic appeal and nightlife. Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach are famous for their beaches, wooden boardwalks, eclectic shops, amusements, and sporting activities. Dogfish Head Brewery’s original brewpub is located on the town’s main strip, Rehoboth Avenue. The locations have grown in the past few years as a popular destination for American Craft Beer enthusiasts.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total of 1.6 square miles of which 1.2 square miles are land and the remainder are lakes. Rehoboth Beach is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Henlopen Acres to the north, and to the west and south by unincorporated sections of Sussex County. Farther north is Cape Henlopen State Park, and Dewey Beach is to the south.
