Rehoboth Beach Museum, Rehoboth Beach Historical Society…both call home the Old Ice House, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Skimming the Surface, Exhibits, Beach Ball Fundraising Event, Watermelon Festival



The Rehoboth Beach Museum was opened to the public in 2007.  I think that for most of us that love Rehoboth Beach and promote it, the Museum gives us a starting point in order to show our friends and families that visit, what a gem this town has become.  A visit to the Museum will show you Rehoboth then; you are already experiencing what it is now.  So, why not dive into the local history of our town and see why so many call Rehoboth Beach “The Nation’s Summer Capital”.


Both, the Rehoboth Beach Museum and the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society call home the Old Ice House, which is near the canal.  John A. Lingo built the first wooden ice house at that location in 1912.  At the time, ice was harvested from Silver Lake, in Rehoboth Beach.  While visiting the Rehoboth Beach Museum you will be able to see the Lingo’s Family Bible on display as you come in.


The location for the Museum is 511 Rehoboth Avenue, right by the roundabout, and next to the Rehoboth Beach Chamber of Commerce Visitors’ Center.  The tel. is 302-227-7310 and the website is


The Rehoboth Beach Museum has been busy and these are a few of the upcoming events:


Saturday, August 6th – It is The 6th Annual Rehoboth Museum Beach Ball from 7:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. at Kings Creek Country Club in Rehoboth.  There will be great food, silent and live auctions, as well as music by Sol Knopf. 

This is a fundraising event to benefit the Rehoboth Beach Museum.  The theme for this year’s bash is Surf’s Up!  The attire is Surfer Chic.  For more info., please call 302-227-7310.  You can purchase tickets online by visiting


Skimming the Surface Exhibit

Skimming the Surface Exhibit


Wednesday, August 10th – Surf Talk at 6:00 p.m. – A lively panel discussion about surfing off the Delaware Coast in the 1960s and 1970s. 

Longtime local surfers Gary Revel and Neil Stevenson will be joined by Eastern Surfer shop owner George Pittman and others who made the Delaware surf scene a lively one.  The informal discussion will be moderated by Terry Plowman, publisher of Delaware Beach Life magazine.


Light refreshments will be served.  Please call 302-227-7310 to reserve a space.  Admission will be $3.  Free parking available.


Continuing with the “surfing” theme is the Museum’s newest exhibit “Skimming the Surface: Surfing, Skimboarding and Floating Off the Delaware Coast”.  The exhibit is a celebration of the surfing community that was along the Delaware coast during the 1960s and 1970s.  Some of these surfers made their mark on the regional surf scene.


I stopped to check it out.  You will see surfboards and surfing related items from those years; boards that were used for fun and competition in regional contests by local surfers. 




Skimboards from the 1940s through the 1980s help tell the story of the development of skimboarding, particularly in Dewey Beach.  Photos, surfing accessories, a vintage inflatable raft, among other items, provide a peek into the past.  For more information, please check the website above mentioned.


Besides the Skimming the Surface exhibit, the Museum has a Funland exhibit.  If you grew up in Rehoboth Beach, have vacationed here with kids, or have had your kids grow up here, then, I am sure you took them to Funland.  Lots of rides, food and games, right on the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk. 



Part of the original train is at the exhibit, beautifully preserved.

Information on the Old Ice House is also available.  Did you know that before household refrigerators were common, people would store their watermelons at the ice house for 25 cents?  They would carve their initials for identification. 

The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society celebrates this tradition with the Annual Watermelon Festival, which will take place on Saturday, August 13th in Grove Park from 3 – 6 p.m.  Admission is $3 for ages 13 and older, $2 for children 5 to 12.  Children 4 and younger are free.  Admission to the festival also includes admission to the Rehoboth Beach Museum.


There will music from 3-4 p.m., 4-5 p.m. watermelon eating contests by age and from 5-6 p.m. watermelon seed spitting contests by age.  Hula Hooping and Paddle Ball, as well.


The Rehoboth Museum is a very manageable museum.  I know you want to be on the beach but I assure you, it will be worth visiting.

“Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.”  stella adler


Rehoboth Beach offers its visitors plenty.  It has a beautiful beach, a boardwalk, shops, restaurants; fine dining and junk food, as well.  In the summer, this coastal town is a destination; arts and entertainment being at the head of it all.

I decided to write this post just on the arts and entertainment.  This is in addition to all the venues that offer live music.


Since 1963 Rehoboth Beach has been offering FREE entertainment as part of the Summer Concert Series.  These concerts are held at the bandstand in the Rehoboth Boardwalk.  They start at 8:00 p.m. unless otherwise mentioned. 

There is a full schedule with descriptions on its website;


Friday, 6/17 – Kicking off the Summer Concert Season and a new one to the Bandstand is Deja Groove Party Band.  This is a dance band.  You can check their own website at  It is a high energy performance, a diverse musical repertoire that will get you on your feet.  This band will be performing the best music of the 60’s through the 90’s and right up to the chart topping hits of today.

A new exhibit just opened:  Skimming the Surface:  Surfing, Skimboarding, and Floating off the Delaware Coast. 

The following postcard is of the interior of Surf Shop East, Rehoboth Beach, from the 1960’s.  It is on loan to the Rehoboth Beach Museum from Skip Savage, who owned the shop and who is also in the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame.


On display you will find vintage surfboards, skimboards and bathing suits.  Surfing slang, board shaping and information about ancient Hawaiian surfing traditions will be featured.

The exhibit will continue until the first week of March, 2012.  Gallery hours are:  Mondays to Fridays 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Festival Film Reviews – Film Critics Wanted!!  Always thought you wanted to be a film critic?  Well, then this might be your opportunity.  Be a part of the film selection process for the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival, which will be celebrating its 14th year.

Each session will include the screening of a short and a documentary or a feature, time permitting.  Reviewers are asked to complete a rating form and may also join in the post film discussion.

A new twist on classical music to the beach.  Opus Nine, an ensemble of twenty-somethings from New York, will bring their impeccable musicianship and youthful vigor to Rehoboth Beach for two evening concerts.

Opus Nine was started in early 2009 by Alysia Lee and Jarvis Benson.  They wanted to start an ensemble that mirrored their lives and represented their generation – to “embrace their differences and work together harmoniously”.

With degrees from such prestigious schools as Julliard and the Peabody Conservatory, members of Opus Nine have performed all across the country, including recitals at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.


This Theatre Company is ready to offer a new year full of shows for the whole family.  These productions will take place during the 2011-2012 season. It will be the 7th season of performing arts at the beach.


So, get your calendar ready.  Visit the above mentioned website so that you can have further information on what’s on the schedule.  Here is a little teaser.

It will kick off the season with “100 Years of Broadway IV from September 23rd to October 9th.  Then, Clear Space Theatre will take part in Rehoboth Beach’s Annual Sea Witch Festival by creating their own Haunted Theatre.  That will be from October 21st until October 30th. Scrooge will follow from November 25th until December 11th.  On December 31st “Showstoppers” which will have members of the acting company take the stage to perform big Broadway tunes, followed by dancing, live music and a champagne toast at midnight.  On January 27 – 29, 2012 a new version of “An American Songbook” will start the new year.  Then, immediately after that “Blithe Spirit” will open on February 2nd until February 19th.  This classic comedy by Noel Coward follows a British novelist whose second marriage is disrupted by the ghost of this first wife.

Spring will have a roster full of musicals.  “Little Shop of Horrors”, March 15th until April 1st.  Ted Keegan will return for a new concert series April 27 – 29.  A production of “My Fair Lady” will run from May 10 – 27.

The company will wrap up performances with their summer repertory season, which begins June 19th and runs through September 2nd.  Three shows will run in rotation all summer long.  The productions of “100 Years of Broadway IV” and “My Fair Lady” will be welcomed back in addition to the new production “Words & Music: The 1950’s”, a celebration of the sounds of the era.


I remember when I moved to the Delaware Beaches in 1981.  Not much was going on and people would ask “What are you going to do there year-round?”….How times have changed.  Those same people have either bought properties here, have moved here, or can’t wait to visit time and time again….have a good one.

Sandoway House, Nature Center, Delray Beach, Florida, Summer Programs, Exhibits, Village by the Sea, Palm Beach County


I have not been in Delray Beach for 2 months.  The Second Season in this Village by the Sea is one of my favorites. It’s a quieter pace, you can show up at a restaurant without a reservation, less honking of horns, and the grocery store isles are more manageable, as well.  There are other reasons why I love Delray.  I have met very nice people; their residents and shopkeepers are wonderful.  You know, those little details that stay in your mind and want to make you go back to this town again and again

The residents look forward to this time of the year.  The town all to themselves.

This Second Season brings to Delray plenty of visitors.  And since it is that time of the year where school children will be home a lot, I thought I would pass on what the Sandoway House Nature Center can offer this summer.  You will need it; it’s a long summer, believe me.  I remember well.

The Sandoway House Nature Center is located at 142 South Ocean Blvd.  This is just a block and a half south of Atlantic Avenue on the west side of A1A.  You cannot miss it.


In 2002, this home was listed on the National Historic Places and the marker in front of the house shows this designation.


On February 15th I wrote a post on this beautiful place.  You can just go on the left hand of this website and click under the month of February, 2011 and scroll down to the 15th. 

The website is and the tel. is 561-274-7263.

As you come in some of the usual suspects will be there; they always are.  The cranky Blue & Gold Macaw being one of them.  He checks all visitors.  He knows he is beautiful.


Exhibits and educational programs are on going.  So here is what you will find.

General Admission is $4.


As of May 13th – Tooth for Thought.  I remember when I had my own shark’s tooth.  I wore it on a leather cord.  That was the style them.

At the Nature Center you will find that this will be an interactive program where guests will make a Shark Tooth Necklace while learning about the ocean’s top predators.  $3 plus general admission.


Camps – Ocean View Summer Camp 2011

June 6th until June 10th

June 13th until June 17th

June 20th until June 24th

During each week the campers will spend time interacting with Nature Center exhibits and participating in a variety of science related activities.  Each day is from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

After-care is offered from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. at not additional charge.

For more detailed info. please call them at 561-274-7263.


Tuesdays – Starting June 15th is Turtle Talk Tuesdays.  Speedy, the Florida’s endangered Gopher Tortoise, Gigi, a Florida Box Turtle, a red-bellied pond turtle and a few more.  Learn about their habitats.  These turtles call Sandoway Nature Center, home.


Admission is $4 for ages 3 and up; free for members.  It also includes admission to all other exhibits.


Wednesdays – Starting June 16th at 2:00 p.m. – Being that the Sandoway Nature Center is a historic home adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, it has beautiful gardens, showcasing native plants.  Walk through the native butterfly garden.  The leisure walk includes identification and information on dozens of native Florida plants. 



Learn what types of plants butterflies love and are attracted to.  Admission is only $4. It includes all the other exhibits, as well, including Florida’s largest private shell collection. 



Thursdays – Starting June 17th.  Inside and Outside Shells.  The Sandoway Nature Center houses one of the largest exhibits in Florida.  Learn from their resident conchologist. Conchology is the scientific or amateur study of mollusk shells.



Kids will be able to touch several living mollusks, including the Horse Conch, which is Florida’s State Shell.  I really did not know that.  And, you will also be able to dissect a large squid.  $4 admission.

The Horshe Conch is found on Florida’s shores regularly.  The snail is the second largest mollusk, with one shell, in the world.  It can get to up to 2 feet in size.


It is an agressive carnivor eating……you will need to check this out at the Nature Center.


Starting July 1st – Take a bite out of summer.  The “Shark Months” exhibit will call Sandoway Nature Center, its home.  80 different varieties of shark and ray jaws.  A replica of a Great White Shark Jaw will be there for photos, a touch table, a free fossil dig for kids, Hawaiian Shark Tooth weapons and plenty more.  Admission is $4 per guest.  Please call 561-274-7263 for more info.


Tuesdays through Saturdays  at 10:30 a.m. and on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. is Shark Feeding at the Sandoway.  I have attended and it is very interesting.  Learn about what Atlantic Ocean Reef Fish and Nurse Sharks eat.


Besides all the exhibits and programs, one of them is a Group Education Program that can be tailored to your needs.  The K-12 programs are developed to meet Florida Sunshine State Standards.  Call to schedule your group adventure.  Perfect for school and special interest groups of all ages.  The learning experience will be adapted to your group.


Now you have some information to, at least, get those kids out and about.

Have a great day!!
