Sailboat on the horizon after a night of storms, Rehoboth, DE.
Located three hours east of Washington, Rehoboth, DE, is a seaside town that is not only home to year-round folks, but is a tourist trap for folks escaping the heat and oppressive humidity of cities up and down the eastern seaboard. The town was originally started as a camp meeting resort for Christians.
Unlike the beaches on the west coast, these beaches are really flat, densely populated in the summer, and overly developed with boardwalks and retail outlet malls. Still, when you need a beach fix, you can't beat Rehoboth.
