Charming area not too commercialized

Great area around the boardwalk, not too big, not too small. Residential area near the boardwalk was also very "kept up" and nice. The whole experience was very nice.

The boardwalk are at Bethany is very nice. There is ample parking. The shops are classy & the entire area is clean & well-kept. There is a nice variety of restaurant offerings. The outdoor theater hosts a range of free entertainment. The beach provides beautiful views & a comfortable breeze. Great place to walk, shop, snack, dine, & relax.

Bethany Beach Broad-walk is in a very suitable place with many options near the breach itself. It gives a sense of nostalgic feeling and the approach to the Sand and the Sea is very aptly made. A place one must visit while going to Rehoboth.

We had walked from our condo- to the arcade and check out the scene. The arcade is fun but the smell is horrible. They have a lot fun pinball machines. It's more shopping than anything else. I like they had a small grocery store that had Nut/ Soy milks, and gluten free bread and other food staples. Their coffee shop... More

We love Bethany Beach and visit the boardwalk area whenever we can in all seasons. We check for the sand level, greet the day, bike alongside the ocean and stop for a treat. People greet strangers and say hi. It is a beautiful, charming and perfect place.

I am not usually the beach type but it was beautiful. It was clean and i felt safe there and i did in the surrounding area also. The boardwalk was enjoyable. It is a bit of a tourist trap but not so much in a bad or tacky way. The gift shops are rather expensive but they do have some... More
