Dewey Beach Vacation Rentals

Despite being the state's youngest town, Dewey Beach has become one of the brightest gems along Delaware's "Gold Coast." The town is just over one mile long and less than three blocks wide, but it boasts an impressive amount of shoreline; one on side, the Atlantic Ocean beckons swimmers, while on the other, the Rehoboth Bay's quiet beaches attract sunbathers and bird watchers. Just to the north of Dewey Beach vacation homes lies the vibrant resort town of Rehoboth Beach and to the south sits the Delaware Seashore State Park.

Although year-round residents of Dewey Beach vacation properties number only 350, the population of the town swells to tens of thousand in the warm summer months. As a result, there are a wealth of activities and attractions geared toward the vacation-goers that populate Dewey Beach vacation rentals. These include:

  • Dewey Beach Popfest
  • HighTide Jamfest
  • Dewey Beach Chickfest
  • Elvisfest
  • Dewey Beach Music Conference
  • Greyhound Reach the Beach Weekend
  • Jazz Festival
  • East Coast Skimboarding Championships
  • Americana MusicFest
  • New Year's Eve Celebration

But perhaps the most anticipated event is the Rusty Rudder Annual Country Chili Cook-Off, which pits Dewey Beach's home chefs against area professionals. From the entertainment to the food, this competition is a must-see for visitors and owners of Dewey Beach vacation homes alike!

Dewey Beach is well known for its dynamic music scene featuring local and even national acts that range from the Goo Goo Dolls and the Dave Matthews Band to Matchbox Twenty and 3 Doors Down. Weekends bring music fans to beach bars and clubs that line the Coastal Highway (Route 1) like the Bottle & Cork, the Starboard, the Rusty Rudder, and the Lighthouse. The town also hosts the aforementioned Dewey Beach Music Conference each September. Attendees and owners of Dewey Beach vacation properties appreciate the accessibility of the Conference's performance venues, all of which are within easy walking distance.

When the renters and owners of Dewey Beach vacation homes aren't busy enjoying the town's musical offerings, they are often participating in one of the many races that fill the community's calendar of events. These include:

  • Dewey Beach Liquors 5K
  • Annual Rusty Rudder 5K
  • Annual Classic Catering 4 Mile Run/5K Walk
  • Annual Jimmy's Grille 5K
  • Annual Northbeach 5K
  • Grog Shop 5K
  • Annual Venus on the Half Shell 5K
  • Annual JD Shuckers 5K
  • Annual Highway One 10K/5K
  • Annual Gary P. Lister/Bottle & Cork Ten Miler/5K
  • Annual Dewey Beach Relay Marathon

The town's proximity to such major cities as Wilmington, DE, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, MD, and Philadelphia, PA only add to the popularity of Dewey Beach vacation rental homes. In addition, unlike many nearby resorts that are crowded with high-rise developments, the town still offers plenty of the types of houses and beachfront cottages that make ideal Dewey Beach vacation rentals. And although many come to Dewey Beach to party, the town also draws families with its sandy beaches offering plenty of seaside activities. In short, Dewey Beach is a "way of life" for both the young and the young-at-heart, which is why Dewey vacation homes are in constant demand.
