Destination? Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Christmas In Rehoboth Beach, Happy Holidays, Tax Free Shopping, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


So many visitors come to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, year round.  Rehoboth was incorporated in 1873 to create a Christian seaside resort.  The railroad was extended in 1878 to Rehoboth Beach, therefore, bringing more visitors and businesses to this seaside town.  In 1879 the town was renamed “The Rehoboth Beach Association”.  The population has grown over the years.  Plenty of summer visitors and part time residents increase the population significantly .

During Christmas I love grabbing something to eat in town with a friend….come to think of it I just did that with my friend, Jody.  Stopping at Dogfish Head on Rehoboth Avenue for one of my favorite salads….their pub salad topped with grilled salmon and a delicious dressing is not to be missed.  It looks good and it tasted even better.


If you decided to visit Rehoboth Beach during the Holidays you will find the town looking more beautiful than ever.  Tiny lights cover the trees in town.  The Boardwalk is a mile long.  It was quiet when Jody and I were walking, no one around.

Delmarva Connections, “Brewmore Baltimore”, Documentary, Friday, March 6, 2015, Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Lewes Historical Society, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


What temperature to serve beer?  It has to do with one’s preference….mine?  I love it ice cold….with a side of steamed crabs!!


The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Lewes Historical Society are co-presenting Delmarva Connections.  This is a 3-part film series that explore connections to the region around us.  The final event of the 2015 series takes place on Friday, March 6th at 7:00 p.m. with a screening of the film, “Brewmore Baltimore” at The INN at Canal Square, 122 West Market Street in Lewes, Delaware.


For those comming to the Delaware Beaches for a week-end of fun and relaxation, March is a wonderful month at the beach.  So, I am giving you plenty of time to make plans because this documentary is worth seeing if you are a beer aficionado.


This informative domentary chronicles the story of one of the most vibrant and popular industries in the U.S…..BEER!!  With nealy one billion in annual sales, the U.S. beer market is growing rapidly.  At its peak, in the early 1900s, the brewing industry in Baltimore distributed products by over 40 distinct breweries, and National Brewing Company was a producing over 1 million barrels per year.  Although the industry declined, it made a resurgence in the mid-1980s and microbreweries started opening in neighborhoods throughout the city.  “Brewing Baltimore” takes us on a journey through Baltimore’s past and present as historian Maureen O’Prey guides us through the city’s rich brewing history.  We learn about the old stalwarts of the trade and are introduced to Baltimore’s newes set of modern day brewers.  A review on says “When the film ends, it feels much like the introduction to something much larger.  It’s like it’s setting up some grand adventure that is just beginning.”  When you open the website above mentioned, put Brewmore Baltimore on the Search.

A post film discussion will be led by filmmaker Nicholas Kovacic and Baltimore historian Maureen O’Prey.  Admission for this event is $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under.  Tickets can be purchased online at, or by calling the Rehoboth Beach Film Society at 302-645-9095, ext. 1.


RBFS’ mission:  To promote cinematic arts and to provide educational and cultural enrichment for our community.    The Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival will be November 11-15, 2015….mark your calendars!!

Have a good one!!

Note:  My photos are from The Boulder Beer Company in Boulder, Colorado, and Dogfish Head in Milton, Delaware….both tours are excellent!!!
