Rehoboth Beach, Delaware: The Perfect Family Beach Town

We just returned from one of our two favorite places on Earth:  Rehoboth Beach, DE.  (The other is Walt Disney World)  My wife and I have been spending at least a week down there every June since before we had kids - more than 10 years.  It really is the perfect place for a family beach vacation - small enough to walk or bike almost everywhere, nice boardwalk, clean water, great sandy beaches, family friendly atmosphere, a nice little amusement park on the boardwalk, and great food.  Rehoboth has a much nicer family feel than more famous beach towns like Ocean City, MD and Virginia Beach.

During our week we spent lots of time in the ocean and on the beach.  Water temperatures for this last week in June were in the low 70s.  We saw many dolphins swimming off the coast, and even a sting ray.  We biked and walked the mile from our rental house into town and the boardwalk almost every morning and evening to eat, which was good because we got ice-cream every night.  

I was hoping to get a couple of blog posts up while we were on vacation, but due to incredible beach weather and the great time we were having, that didn't happen.  I did take lots of pictures, though, and I'm going to be putting up posts on a few different aspects of Rehoboth Beach and our vacation over the next week or so.
