Dewey Seashore, positioned between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay, gives seashore sports activities and actions as well as great eating places, majestic sunsets, live music, dancing, and nightlife that are world famous for adults of all ages. Dewey Seashore lies on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay and is about one mile long and two blocks vast. Regardless of its small measurement and low 12 months-round inhabitants of about 300, it’s not uncommon for 30,000 to descend upon the town during summer time weekends. Numerous bars and eating places line Coastal Highway ( Delaware Route 1 ), the city’s important avenue.
Family fun in Dewey Seashore consists of skimboarding, bonfires, film nights on the seashore, and the exciting amusements on the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. Families can access the boardwalk and downtown Rehoboth without moving their car by walking or driving the Jolly Trolley, which just a few blocks away.
In 1868, “Rehoboth City” first appeared on a map of Lewes Rehoboth Hundred in Beer’s Atlas of Delaware. It is believed that the name was modified to Dewey Seashore following the 1898 Battle of Manilla (Spanish-American Battle) when Admiral George Dewey became a national hero. Dewey Beach was integrated in 1981.
The Rehoboth Seaside Life-Saving Station (RBLSS), situated on the finish of Dagsworthy Street, was commissioned in 1878. It became the Rehoboth Beach Coast Guard Station (RBCGS) in 1915. In 1921 residents objected to the closing of the station, and it was recommissioned in 1926. The station was decommissioned in 1937 and deserted in 1946. The original construction was moved to Lewes and became a residence. A reproduction of the station was inbuilt 1988 which stands immediately.
Dewey Seashore lies on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay and is about one mile long and two blocks large. Despite its small size and low year-round population of about 300, it is not unusual for 30,000 to descend upon the city during summer weekends. Quite a few bars and restaurants line Coastal Freeway ( Delaware Route 1 ), the city’s predominant road.
