Boasting a water park, a mini-golf course, batting cages and more, the Jungle Jim's complex has a little something for everyone. Although recent visitors said the water park wasn't as large as expected, most families who ventured the 3 miles inland said the price of admission was worth it. The water park portion of the complex offers slides, a lazy river, a kids splash pool area and more water activities – all with a wildlife theme. The grounds are also home to a cafe that serves pizza, burgers and sandwiches, as well as treats like ice cream and hot pretzels.

You'll find Jungle Jim's about 3 miles west of the beach. Open seasonally, the park welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. to between 6 and 8 p.m. (weather permitting; hours vary by season). You can purchase all-day passes starting at $23 or enjoy reduced admission starting at $18 if you enter after 3 p.m. Ticket prices vary by height. Keep in mind: You'll have to pay extra if you want to try your hand at the bumper boats, mini-golf course or batting cages. For more information, check out Jungle Jim's website.

#1 Beach and Boardwalk

It's what sun worshippers and beach bums come for: the shore. It can get crowded during peak season (May to August), but beachgoers say the sands are clean and the waves are typically calm, making it very family-friendly. The beach is backed by a mile-long boardwalk that's packed with shops, restaurants and bars. While recent visitors noted that the boardwalk isn't as long as others in the region (like those in Ocean City, Maryland, or Atlantic City, New Jersey) the variety of local businesses ensures that visitors will never run out of things to do.

The beach is free to visit and is reachable from numerous access points, but the sands are off-limits between 1 and 5 a.m. each day for safety reasons. Lifeguards patrol the beach inside the city limits from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays (and until 5:30 p.m. on weekends). If you drive, you'll have to pay for parking – either at metered spaces, which cost $2 per hour, or by purchasing a parking permit that ranges from $10 during the week to $15 over the weekend. Extended parking permits are also available. For more information on beach rules and regulations, check out the City of Rehoboth Beach website.
