Rehoboth Beach is located at 125km south of Wilmington. Delaware Seashore State Park is just south of Rehoboth Beach, occupying a narrow peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay. It has beachfront on both bodies of water. Rehoboth Beach was originally a site for Methodist camp meetings. The name Rehoboth is biblical in origin and means “room enough.” Nowadays, there’s probably still room enough, but things get a bit crowded during summer, when large numbers of vacationers descend on the town. Many of them are politicians and government workers from Washington, D.C., so Rehoboth is referred to as “the nation’s summer capital.”
