Whimsical Rehoboth Beach is an old-fashioned beach resort perfect for a getaway a dèux. Win a prize for your honey in one of the sweetly corny arcade games along the boardwalk. The wide, sandy beach invites evening strolls.

On Sundays, tuck into diver scallops and champagne in the romantic breezeway.

Eden, Rehoboth Beach

Dine in private in one of the curtained booths; try the foie gras and duck confit, or the renowned paella, expertly paired with a terrific wine list.

Boardwalk Plaza Hotel

Some cozy rooms at the Victorian inn have wrought-iron balconettes overlooking the ocean and romantic ruffles decking the comfy beds. Leave your windows open, and let the sound of the surf lull you to sleep.
