Dewey Beach 

Right next to Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach is a delightful coastal destination that is perfect for a 4th of July weekend! With a nearby spanning boardwalk, gorgeous beaches, and local shops and eateries, there are plenty of ways to celebrate as a family. Dine at an oceanfront restaurant before heading out to the beach to catch a spot for the fireworks! 


Lewes, DE knows how to celebrate the 4th of July with classic flare! First, the celebrations kick off with second street being shut down to make way for old-fashioned games — a favorite activity for children of all ages. After taking part in the second street games, head to the Lewes-Rehoboth canal to watch the boat parade. The parade will float through the canal and end up at Fisherman’s Wharf with the boats all competing for a prize for the best decorations! You can also have a BBQ at home at your Lewes vacation rental or make a splash in a community pool with a stay in a Lewes rental condo!
