Visit a water park
Spend a day floating in a wave pool and speeding down waterslides. Or set out on a pirate-themed adventure cruise, and sing sea chanteys as you search for the hidden booty. And don’t forget—a wide variety of attractions are just a short drive away in Ocean City.
Get up close and personal with nature and wildlife
Delaware Beaches and surrounding cities have numerous nature parks and wildlife refuges. Bird watching, hiking or just exploring the area is a great way to learn something while spending time together.
Play a round of mini-golf or race on a go-kart track
For those who like a challenge, maneuver through 18 holes of mini-golf, or spend the day picking up speed on the go-kart track. Then treat the whole family to everyone’s favorite flavor at one of the local ice cream shops.
Throw it back
Get in touch with your creative side by playing dress-up and having old fashioned photos taken. Become a family of cowboys, 1920s mobsters or saloon guys and gals. Afterward you’ll have a priceless souvenir that the family will enjoy looking at for years to come.
Explore some of the area’s most popular art galleries for that one-of-a-kind experience that combines learning with cultural fun. Visit the numerous museums to learn a little and enjoy a lot.
Even kids will enjoy a history lesson at the exciting museums, historic homes and tours in historic Lewes—known as “the first town in the first state.” Located a few miles north of Rehoboth Beach, Lewes is almost 400 years old and contains plenty of history.
The town’s proud heritage has been carefully preserved by the Lewes Historical Society, making the town a great place for a leisurely walking tour. The historic district features charming shops, bed and breakfasts and other accommodations. After exploring, take the family out for seafood at one of the area’s restaurants.
