Dewey Beach

Dewey can be a lonely place in winter, but come summer, it is the undisputed party capital of Delaware, a place known for live modern music at iconic places like The Bottle & Cork and The Rusty Rudder. Newish restaurants like Ivy, as well as the established Two Seas, elevate the dining scene in Dewey, which was once riddled with run-of-the-mill places for hoagies and steaks, chicken and fried seafood. If you’re buying, home styles range from the cottages of Rehoboth By The Sea to the north, to the modern houses of neighboring Indian Beach to the south (neither part of Dewey proper), with everything in between—townhouses, condos, old summer houses, etc. Buyer beware: Your neighbors could be a gang of group house renters who are in summertime party mode every weekend.
