Full of legend and lore, Dewey Beach has always been a popular spot with people from Philadelphia , Wilmington , Baltimore and D.C. but its status seems to grow every year as a regional and even national phenomenon making it the little town with the big reputation. Maybe that's because Dewey is a place of tradition, pageantry, lightheartedness and even a little organized chaos. In other words, there is no place else in all the beach world quite like Dewey Beach- it's fun, friendly and there's always something special and Dewey-unique happening.
Example 1: There's no place else to sit and have a great breakfast, feast at a Bloody Mary Smorgasbord and then enjoy a Running of the Bull.
Example 2: Quick! Think of another place you know that features a relaxing weekend retreat for rescued Greyhound dogs and their owners that also features a slew of music festivals like Popfest, the Dewey Beach Music Conference and the Elvis Festival. Still thinking, aren't you?
Example 3: Did you know that Dewey Beach is home to both the Dewey Devil and the East Coast Skim Boarding Championships?
The examples could go on endlessly (and why shouldn't they, the fun lasts all year long) but you've probably gotten the point by now so, just in case you're looking to visit Dewey soon know too that it has plenty of hotels, luxury condos and tasty restaurants all within walking distance of its folly. As if all this isn't enough, Dewey's prime location, sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay, make it an excellent place for water sports and recreation: boat and Jet Ski rentals, parasailing, a marina complete with launch and docking facilities, you name it and chances are Dewey has it.
