If you have ever visited Florida for Christmas, you may notice its difficult to get caught up in the holiday season when the temperatures rarely fall lower than 70 and the sun is always shining.

But you won’t have to worry about when you take your Christmas vacation in Rehoboth Beach! Offering the lure of the ocean and yet still managing to emit the feeling of Christmas, our beach town doesn’t close down for the winter holidays; our town comes alive!

The following are a few of the things that you will love about winter in Rehoboth.

The tree featured here is always the biggest locally grown tree of the year, and it is quite a sight to see. Make sure you grab a hot chocolate and then explore this beautiful area in the crisp weather of winter.
Visit Local Favorite Restaurants
This may not seem like an activity that is specific to winter, and you would be right. But in the quieter months of December, January, and February, you will be able to walk in and get a table that would require reservations weeks in advance during the summer and spring. During the winter, it feels like these amazing establishments are there solely for your enjoyment. One of the most prominent of these restaurants is the Henlopen City Oyster House.

The state of Delaware has a long history, and with it comes a long list of legends, stretching from the native tribes which lived off the rich waters, to the European settlers who would tame a land unknown to them, to the modern Americans who still sometimes report the strange and unsettling.
The Witch’s Tree
There is a gnarled and timeworn cypress tree near Selbyville, Delaware. It seems innocuous, but locals and tourists alike have claimed that approaching it brings about strange experiences. Spine chills have been reported, as well as strange lights, visible to the naked eye, sometimes accompanied by strange sounds. The real reason behind these phenomena are unknown, but some give credit to a witch that once lived near the lone tree.
Set in the small town of Gumboro, a home is known by the people who live nearby as haunted. Spectral figures move across the yard, as a harmonica is heard nearby in the later hours of night, into the dark hours of the morning. The images of ghostly younger children playing outside are sometimes accompanied by disembodied voices heard around the house. The owners of the place both welcome and guard their presence.
The Addy Sea
If the name seems odd, well, it’s over 110 years old. In fact, it was named for John Addy, the original owner of this bed-and-breakfast, built in the old Victorian style in Bethany. Despite the charming exterior and comfortable accommodations, perhaps the place was doomed to be haunted, since it includes 13 rooms. Three of these rooms are rumored to be haunted, with one’s copper bathtub sometimes violently shaking, and room number 6 sending forth haunting strains of organ music—despite a total lack of musical organs in the room. Some also claim to have heard footsteps on the roof at night—rumored to belong to Kurt Addy, who died from falling off the roof. The place seems nice to visit, but we can’t recommend staying!
Long Cemetery’s Cat Man
In Frankford’s Long Cemetery, there was once a grave keeper who frequently chased troublemakers off the grounds. According to the legend, the grave keeper was a feline-looking man—after his death, a strange spirit, partly humanoid and partly feline, began haunting the cemetery. He continues his work from long ago—scaring away those who would disturb the rest of the fallen.
Rehoboth: Relaxing and Reassuring
Don’t worry, the area around Rehoboth itself is plenty safe from miscreant spirits. Book a stay with us today by calling 302-227-1800!

Adults enjoy themselves too with the bonfires, live music, and live entertainment. The weekend is topped off with 5k race and costumed pet parade. There’s something for everyone!
