Best Activities Near Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth Beach is an incredibly beautiful beach located in coastal Delaware. From the white sandy beaches to the family fun packed boardwalk, there is so much that Rehoboth Beach has to offer. I want to share with you the top 5 best family activities near Rehoboth Beach that are sure to win over your entire family, whether with more water fun or a relaxing bike ride through the salt marsh from a Rehoboth Beach family photographer!

  1. Funland Rehoboth

If you and your kids are looking for some thrill seeking fun after visiting Rehoboth Beach, visiting Funland is your sure ticket to a great time! With twenty rides to choose from, perfect for beginning riders to several thrill rides for the older crowd (even thrill seeking parents), there is a ride that certainly will call your name. Then, when you are ready for a break from the rides, you can head on over to the Midway games where you can choose from exciting Derby races to hoop shooting. In addition, they have your back parents and deven have a few select games where everyone is a winner. Too, they offer a limited amount of treats and snacks to hold you over while you’re enjoying your time riding throughout the park.

2. Best Activities Near Rehoboth Beach : Jungle Jims

If you didn’t get enough water fun at Rehoboth Beach, be sure to check out Jungle Jim’s Water Park! With several giant water slides, a wave pool, lazy river and kiddie pool – you are sure to get cooled off on a hot summer day. When you are ready for a little time out of the water, you can hop on over to one of the two mini golf courses. These golf courses aren’t your typical course – they are life like with dazzling landscaping, water hazards, special terrains and more. No wonder Jungle Jim’s mini golf courses are the two nicest mini golf courses in the Rehoboth Beach area! And when everyone’s appetite is ready, you’ll be able to walk right over to the River Safari Cafe for cheeseburgers, hot dogs, salads and more.

3. Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk

Once you’ve packed up your beach gear, you and your family can enjoy a family stroll along the mile long boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. This number one popular attraction for families, all year long, is a quaint and charming addition to the beach atmosphere. Lined with many shops, restaurants, businesses and family attractions, this popular family activity is a great way to end the evening and see what unique and charming things Rehoboth Beach has to offer.

4. Best Activities Near Rehoboth Beach : Zelky’s

Located right on the boardwalk, Zelky’s is the best family arcade in Delaware! With three different locations along the boardwalk to choose from, it is hard to miss. They have 10 cent skee-ball, 25 cent crane games and a dazzling selection of arcade prizes. This would be a huge hit with your kids! Not too far from Funland, be sure to check out Zelky’s Donut Rings. A great way to end your evening with a sweet treat.

5. Gordon’s Pond

If you are hoping to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a more relaxing nature filled day, be sure to head to Gordon’s Pond Trail. This 5 mile trail is a great bike ride through the salt marsh of Coastal Delaware. This trail connects in and out of resort towns through Lewes and Rehoboth, if you’d like a shorter bike ride. You’ll be amazed at the 900 acre saltwater lagoon and be enchanted with the most beautiful views in the area.
