Rehoboth Beach Museum Walking Tours and Boardwalk Strolls

From May 16, 2019 9:00 am until October 10, 2019 11:00 am

At Rehoboth Beach Bandstand


The popular Rehoboth Beach Museum Walking Tours begin on Thursday, May 16 starting at 9:00 a.m. from the Rehoboth Avenue bandstand. In addition, the first of a series of Evening Strolls along the Boardwalk will begin on Thursday, May 30 at 5:30 pm.

The morning Walking Tours will be held every other Thursday morning throughout the summer, except in July when there will be only one tour on July 18, and then picking up again on Thursday August 8. The tour is a 2-hour gentle stroll around downtown. It costs $10.00 payable on the day of the tour to the tour guide. Look for the pink umbrella held by tour guide Jean Brolund or the black umbrella held by tour guide Gerry Beaulieu. Reservations are required and may be obtained by calling the Rehoboth Beach Museum at (302) 227-7310. You may leave your name and telephone number on the answering machine if no one is available to take your call.

The popular evening stroll, began last year, will be on May 30 at 5:30 pm. An evening stroll along the Boardwalk was a tradition for many years. After a long day of surf and sand, families would often take a walk on the boardwalk after dinner, sometimes stopping for ice cream for dessert. Recreate that tradition with the tour leaders.

The morning Walking Tours provide general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach while touching on several of the storms that have shaped the coastline and the beachfront in town. The tour guide will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. Topics covered are the Native people of the area, the Methodist Camp Meetings, Hotels, Railroad Service, and Horn’s Pavilion.

Other topics on the tour may include shipwrecks, naming ships such as the Falmouth, the Merrimac, the Severn, and the SS Thomas Tracy, the railroad, the Belhaven Hotel, restaurants such as the Robert Lee and Snyder’s, and of course, Funland.

Tour goers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or fill up a water bottle at the historic Women’s Christian Temperance Union Fountain on the boardwalk, one of the landmarks mentioned on the tour. There are restrooms available at the bandstand area.

Anyone interested in forming their own group for a private walking tour can call the Museum at (302) 227-7310 to make arrangements.

Check the website for exact dates and times, as well as other programs of interest.
