Rehoboth Recommendations

Our favorite summer destination since we were kids. There’s something for everyone in the family. Our Shaw family favorites include:


Browseabout Books, Rehoboth Ave:

Find your new beach read! Browseabout has a huge selection as well as a gift shop

Bella Luna, Rehoboth Ave:

Our absolute favorite spot for unique jewelry, gifts and home decor items.

Hula Sue, Rehoboth Ave – Village by the Sea:


Supremely cute boutique, great tops dresses and accessories but often a bit pricey so spend wisely!

The Shops at the Cultured Pearl, Rehoboth Ave at Lake Ave.

Need a coffee fix or to get a little work (or blogging) done on the Starbucks wifi? This is the perfect spot. Check out Rehoboth Beach Running Co. inside and if you like sushi the Cultured Pearl is for you!

Funland, the Boardwalk between Delaware & Brooklyn Aves:

Skee Ball. The Haunted Mansion. Tea Cups. Bumper Cars. All the fun of rides and games for children and adults! Just don’t monopolize the skee ball lane….

Ryan’s Gems and Junk + Ryan’s mini golf:


Need a beach chair? Kadima paddles? Sunscreen? Hermit crab? Bizarre item you never knew you needed? Ryan’s has it. Mini golf upstairs is always a delight until your mother kicks your butt.

Beach Food

Dolle’s & Ibachs are the old beach standbys for toffee and fudge. Kohr Brothers frozen custard is our boardwalk staple. If you’re in the mood to go for dinner we often head to Claw’s to get our crab fix. Fin’s has all your seafood favorites and if you’d rather a burger walk a little far down the Avenue to Dogfishhead and enjoy a local beer with your dinner! If you need a quick grocery run stop by Lingo’s market on 1st and Baltimore.
