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.
