Rehoboth self-guided walking tour offered free Nov. 18-27

November 17, 2022

Rehoboth Beach Main Street is offering free access to the Rehoboth Then and Now self-guided walking tour from Friday, Nov. 18 through Sunday, Nov. 27. 

Main Street has partnered with Built Story to launch a new app-based, self-guided tour. App users will enjoy audio recorded by American journalist and NPR radio personality Liane Hansen and local actor David Warick. The audio is accompanied by narrative text, illustrative photography and walking directions for each stop – all available on participants’ phones.

The tour guides visitors to 15 stops throughout the downtown commercial area. Tour-takers will learn about the city’s beginnings as a 19th century religious summer camp, how fires and storms shaped the community, the transformative impact of the railroad, and the illustrious citizens who made Rehoboth what it is today.

Once accessed, a tour can be taken, paused, stopped and retaken for 30 days.

To enjoy Rehoboth Then and Now, download the free Built Story app, available for both iOS and Android, and search Rehoboth Beach. Each tour normally costs $10, but is free during the 10-day special.
