Fun Things To Do With Your Kids in Lewes & Rehoboth Beach
It’s finally summer and that means you get to spend more time with the kids. Making shared memories and filling the days with fun activities is hugely important, not only to keep them happy but also for their development!
But it isn’t always easy when you’re trying to entertain them day after day with new and exciting things to do… unless you’re planning on visiting the Sussex County area that is! There are plenty of fun things to do with your kids in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach.
Here’s our quick guide to help you this summer, ranging from sunny day activities to educational items.
Cape Henlopen State Park
Getting the kids involved and excited about nature is easy with such stunning surroundings. The Cape Henlopen State Park is formed by an array of dunes and beaches, with a fishing pier, bathhouse, disc golf course, and playground. That means there is plenty to see and do, including spotting local wildlife along the trails.
Pirates of Lewes Expeditions
Fun for all the family, what better way to get into the spirit of the region than with a ride along the canal to fight off pirates? A funny and engaging crew puts on a great show to make this an unforgettable, interactive adventure for kids of all ages, with jokes, water cannons, and treasure maps to navigate.
Jungle Jim’s Waterpark
Need somewhere fun to cool off? There’s nowhere better than Jungle Jim’s waterpark and sports facilities. Let the kids splash around on a variety of slides or relax as you drift along the lazy river. There are pools for kids of all ages, as well as batting cages, mini golf, and a cafe for refreshments.
It wouldn’t be a trip to the beach without the Funland Rehoboth family arcade. First opened in 1962, there are classic fairground rides as well as modern rides, giving you options for kids of all ages. Try your hand at some of the games and grab refreshments at the Seaside Snacks store.
Midway Speed Park
For a full day of fun and action, Midway Speed Park can’t be beaten. From go-karts and 18-hole mini golf to bumper boats and White Water Mountain, it’s a fantastic way to treat the kids and let them burn off some energy. You’ll find this park at 18645 Coastal Highway between Lewes and Rehoboth Beach.
Discover more about the roots of the area as the first town in the first state. With interesting exhibits and artworks, you’re only a short walk from the museum when you stay with us at The Beacon Inn. Friendly and informative, it’s definitely worth the trip for the more curious minds.
Seaside Nature Center
If you want to learn more about the aquatic life in the area, take a trip to the Seaside Nature Center at Cape Henlopen. It offers educational and recreational ways to learn more about the local marine life, with a two-level touch tank and different events throughout the year to bring you closer to the action.
Finally, what family vacation or day trip would be complete without some time spent relaxing on the beach? Lewes Beach is a clean, safe beach for all the family and is only a short walk from us — which makes us the perfect place to reserve a room if you’re looking to keep the kids entertained.
