Usually Rehoboth Beach is a lively place to be during the warmer months. Every year, people line up for Kohr Bros famous frozen custard, Thrasher Fries, and Dolle’s Salt Water Taffy. Vacationers stop by Louie’s Pizza, Grotto Pizza, and Nicola Pizza for their favorite slice of pizza. Everyone heads to Purple Parrot for their Schnitzel and famous $3 Bloody Marys & Mimosas. The Candy Kitchen is brimming with kids looking for their favorite treats. And you can’t forget about all the rides and games at Funland! But things aren't going to be quite the same this year.
Rehoboth Beach officials recently announced that the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk and beach will close for the foreseeable future. All events at Rehoboth Beach have been canceled up until July 5th. This includes Rehoboth Beach Fourth of July celebrations.
Rehoboth officials have also removed benches citywide and closed Rehoboth playgrounds. As of now, solo exercise is allowed, but team sports are prohibited. Police are patrolling the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk to enforce city restrictions.
City officials have not yet announced when the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk and beach will open. Mayor Paul Kuhns said in a statement, “The health and safety of the community is our top priority and at the forefront of all decisions made during this unprecedented and rapidly evolving situation.” This is a time unlike any other. We are looking forward to the day when the Rehoboth Beach community can safely come together to enjoy our favorite summer activities.
