Dewey Beach, Delaware

"A Way of Life"

Dewey Beach lies on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay, and is about one mile long and two blocks wide. Despite its small size and low year-round population of about 300, it is not uncommon for 30,000 to descend upon the town during summer weekends. Numerous bars and restaurants line the town's main street.  On weekends, Dewey Beach transforms into one of the best social scenes on the east Coast, attracting a dedicated following from Delaware, Baltimore and the DC metro area.

The town hosts the Dewey Beach Music Conference during the last weekend of September. This event began in 2002 and has been a huge draw for unsigned bands from all over the country.  Another popular Dewey Beach event, which occurs every Columbus Day weekend in October, is Greyhounds Reach The Beach, where thousands of rescued greyhounds and their owners congregate.   The town is also the location of the annual East Coast Skimboarding Championships, in mid-August.  Dewey Beach was one of four beaches nationwide to be awarded SUPERSTAR BEACH STATUS by the Natural Resources Defense Council.
