Rehoboth in April?

Thinking of taking a trip with our toddler to Rehoboth in April. I know Funland (?) is not open until May, but are the shops and restaurants open in April? Any off-season things to do there? Thanks!

Any more many shops are open year round.

Nearly all the shops and restaurants will be open, especially if you go on a weekend. Check out the program listings at Cape Henlopen and Delaware State Seashore Parks...they offer some fun and interesting activities year-round. Cycling around town this time of year is a good option since there is less traffic. Bike to Go on the Avenue has trail maps for on and off road bike tours in the area, and if your toddler is too young to pedal, they have booster seats and bike trailers for kids to enjoy the ride. Gordon’s pond has an especially good trail.

Everything along Coastal Hwy. is open for business as usual.

As for downtown Rehoboth Beach, it's a different story. Just returned home after staying 3 nts. in downtown Rehoboth Beach. The majority of shops were most definitely closed, with only a random small handful being open. Some of the downtown restaurants stay open year long, while others are closed. Sammie's was open only during breakfast hours, only to discover come the afternoon we found it closed. Cool &/or cloudy days, both the streets & boardwalk were eerily empty of anyone, almost like that of a deserted ghost town. It felt awfully creepy looking. Yesterday (Wednesday) being less colder with clearing & sunshine, a few (but not that many) people seen walking along the boardwalk.

Here are some ideas for toddlers:

There is a small petting zoo at Holly Lake Campsite on Route 24 headed towards Millsboro. It is on the campground, so I would call ahead to request pricing for non-campers.

There is also a small farm style petting zoo on Highway One near Milton as you are headed south. It used to be Dawn's Country Market, but I noticed it changed names. I think it is called Indian Point now, but not sure. it is open to the public.

There is an place called Shell We Bounce. It has relocated, so I'm not sure how much has changed since it now is a trampoline park too, but it used to have inflatable play for the little guys.

There are several playgrounds and tot-lots around town. There is one by the Henlopen Hotel, one by Grove Park and one on Stockly Street just to name a few. Ours liked the one on Stockley Street the best so far.

There is a Build-A-Bear in the Tanger outlets IF that interests you as well.

Stop at the Nature Center in the CHSP to view the fish in the fish tanks. Walk around the Point to collect sea shells.

Also, check the calendar at the Rehoboth Library, Lewes Libray and at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth, All offer Toddler Time story times and events. Sometimes the Chick-Fil-A in Rehoboth does too!!
