A coastal town on the shores of Delaware, Dewey Beach likes to brag in its motto that the city “is a way of life.” Not only are the beaches pristine to the eye, Delaware, and Dewey Beach in particular, are often on the tops of water quality rankings in the United States.
Dewey Beach has a seaside family fun center/amusement park called Funland and the name speaks for itself. Jungle Jim’s is another popular park but instead features aquatic attractions like slides and a lazy river. Rehoboth Bay is also a popular destination for sport fishermen and leisurely boat trips.
Visit sometime between May and September for the optimal beach weather.

The town really begins to come to life after the sun sets, as the waterfront is home to several Bayfront night clubs, such as North Beach, Nalu Surf Bar and arguably the most well know, Rusty Rudder.
