This quaint, 1-square-mile city is a popular getaway for those stationed along the Mid-Atlantic coast. Home to about 1,500 permanent residents, Rehoboth Beach swells in the peak summer season to a population of more than 25,000. The town was originally settled as a religious camp in the 1870s, with the boardwalk taking shape around 1879. Then came a railroad and paved highway, and beginning in the 1920s, the area became a retreat for the elite of Washington, D.C., earning it the nickname the "Nation's Summer Capital."
