Every summer, I spend a day or two shopping with my daughter in the city of Rehobeth Beach, Delaware. I like the outlets, but I love shopping on Rehobeth Avenue. You may click on this link for more Rehobeth Beach shopping information.
Tickled Pink, the Lilly Pulitzer store, is our favorite. We also shop in Quiet Storm to buy shorts or a bathing suit for my son. My daughter usually buys a dress or two. At Carlton’s, we can find a Father’s Day gift for my husband. They sell traditional clothing like Vineyard Vines, Tommy Bahama, Patagonia and The North Face.

The sales people are knowledgeable and helpful.
Parking near Rehobeth Avenue has alway been a nightmare. Parking meters are in effect from the Friday before Memorial Day through the second Sunday after Labor Day. They must be fed from 10:00 a.m. to midnight. The charge is $1.50 per hour. They offer 3 hour parking. This link offers more detailed information about Rehobeth.
In the past, I have cut my shopping and dining time short because I was nervous about my meter expiring. The parking meter dictators watch the meters like vultures, and if you are a minute over, they are happy to write a $30.00 ticket.
The meters now accept credit cards. Previously, you had to beg the store keepers for change to feed the meters and chances are, they would not give it to you.
But this year, I did something different. I paid $8.00 for a daily parking permit. I was able to park in a residential area for the day. We shopped, relaxed and dined in Rehobeth Beach. It was better than worrying about feeding the meter. I will buy a parking pass on all future trips!
