We just got back from an amazing trip to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Since I live in NJ, you always hear about the beach because people love going to the Jersey Shore (which in most places is not like the TV show of the same name). We thought of going to Wildwood or Cape May, but I am so happy that we chose Rehoboth because it turned out to be a great choice... it was cute town with lots of things to do, the beach and boardwalk were beautiful and really clean, and the restaurants (always my favorite part of a vacation) were awesome! I would highly recommed checking it out if you haven't been.
One of my favorite things to do when I am down the shore is to check out old signage. That was actually why I had considered going to Wildwood... they have the most amazing old motels and motel signs. Rehoboth couldn't compete with Wildwood in that department, but I was very fond of these two beauties:
Though the restaurants that I ate at were all great, my favorite part of the trip was snacking on all of the fattening foods that you are not supposed to eat in between meals! Thrasher's French Fries had excellent fries and, should you choose a large, you could enjoy (literally) a bucket of fries. We almost made a daily trip to The Ice Cream Store. Their ice cream was amazing and there were tons of flavors to choose from... if you couldn't decide, you could spin the "Wheel of Indecision" (on right) to help you out. On way home, we stopped at The Fractured Prune and got hot hand-dipped donuts. I cannot stop thinking about these... they were so good. The donuts are made right in front of you, hand dipped in the toppings of your choice, and then delivered to you piping hot. We had a lemon glaze, cinnamon and honey, maple glaze, and of course... sprinkles. I want to go back NOW!
