Rehoboth Beach, Delawhere?
A gem of a gay resort! Despite four seasons of weather, Rehoboth is always hot!

Along the Atlantic in oft overlooked Delaware (Delawhere???), sits gay-gracious Rehoboth Beach - a year round gay resort and beach town.This “Nation’s Summer Capital,” long known by U.S. Senators as a seaside escape from sweltering D.C., is strengthening its claim as “The Nation’s Gay Getaway”.

Over 75 eateries and gourmet restaurants (many gay-owned), upscale hotels, Victorian and beach-chic B&B’s, rental cottages and condos.

Exceptional gay-owned and gay-friendly shops lure LGBT visitors from metro Washington, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and beyond.

Requisite hot dogs, salt water taffy and funnel cakes to satisfy seaside junk-food cravings, too.

Sip java along very gay Baltimore Avenue, before heading off for a day of sun and fun on one of Rehoboth’s gorgeous beachs—Gordons Pond (mostly women, or the outrageous Poodle Beach (mostly men). You can hold a book but you’ll never actually read—too much eye candy.

In summer and fall, sunbathers of all ages, body types,and personalities generously co-mingle; products of the gayby boom and leashed pooches welcome, too. Later, there are tea dances, celebrity DJs, and eclectic gay restaurants.

Don’t miss the legendary house and dance parties of Memorial Day and July 4th weekends or the end of the summer Labor Day extravaganza that includes the awesome Sundance celebration and the outrageous Drag Volleyball.

Summer cedes to fall’s Independent Film and Jazz festivals, Halloween parties, wild holiday shopping (no sales tax!) and a New Year’s gala!

Winter offers restaurant discounts and deals, theater, art, concerts and events.

Spring brings a chocolate fest, restaurant week, Women’s Weekend, and art openings at more than a dozen galleries.

From arcades and dolphin watching to dazzling epicurean delights and a colossal gay sensibility, Rehoboth is a sparkling gay getaway.

Spend some quality time here and you will never say “Delawhere???” again.
