Things To Do

Plenty to Experience in “The Nation’s Summer Capital”

Located a little over two hours from Washington, D.C., the Lewes and Rehoboth Beach area lives up to its name as "The Nation’s Summer Capital." In addition to the historic maritime charm of downtown Lewes and the beautiful, wide beaches of Rehoboth and Dewey Beach, you’ll find fantastic restaurants, family fun parks, a boardwalk, championship golf and tax-free shopping at one of the largest outlet destinations on the East Coast (the Tanger Outlets Rehoboth Beach are just a half-mile from the hotel).

To help you start planning your Rehoboth Beach adventure, we’ve asked our hotel staff to put together a list of their favorite nearby attractions and things to do:
