Gay Rehoboth Beach--The Mid-Atlantic's Key West
Rehoboth Beach has been a popular getaway town for the DC, Philadelphia and Baltimore GLBT communities for over 30 years. It is a summer town, and the population swells to 50,000 during the season. With over 200 GLBT-owned businesses in this small resort town, the gay nightlife scene is understated--but understood. Very few establishments scream "Gay Bar!" because GLBT's are welcomed everywhere. Most of the cruising here happens at the beach, and there is also a boardwalk that offers a variety of food, arcades and bars. There is also an active house party scene in Rehoboth, with many parties open to the public. Look for fliers at Poodle Beach. After the sun sets there are plenty of restaurants and bars for fine dining, meeting people, drinking and entertainment. And don't forget shopping! There are outlet stores just north of town on Highway 1 and Delaware is sales tax free.
