Home » 5) Reasons Rehoboth Beach is Millennials Next Beach Vacation

Welcome to Rehoboth Beach, The Nation's Summer Capital for Millennials!


Every generation has its own set of preferences and lifestyle commonalities. The set of needs among millennials specifically aligns with the values the town of Rehoboth Beach upholds, making it the perfect destination for a hard-working, tech-savvy, pet-loving millennial to spend their free time at the beach. We want to affirm what Delaware’s beach has to offer to a younger audience and how their needs will be met and exceed expectations.  

1. Pet-Friendly Hotel Accommodations

Rehoboth Beach is a great place for spending time with our beloved animals. Luckily, the Canalside Inn makes visiting easier by being one of the only pet-friendly hotel and inns of Rehoboth Beach. This accommodation attracts many animal lovers to stay with us, including millennials, the generation of pet parents.

According to YPulse’s recent survey, 76% of 20–38-year old’s have a pet, with over half reporting they have dogs. They are the largest living generation to have pets in their homes, proving Rehoboth to be the perfect location to bring your dog for a getaway. Our company’s mission of welcoming both people and pets is a driving force behind why we appeal to the upcoming generation.

Not only do we provide dog treats, dog towels, stain-resistant sheets, outdoor leashes, waste cans on-premise, we also offer a dog-walking package, and a pet-friendly outdoor shower for convenience, but we have other opportunities for pet-owners to spend time with their furry friends. Our Howlween Dog PhotoshootDoggie Ball and Gala, and Yappy Hour are to name a few. Guests can further treat their furry friends to Salty Paws ice cream, a nice cold drink on the deck at Big Chill Surf Cantina, or a game of fetch at any of Rehoboth’s State Parks.  Check out all the pet-friendly activities you can do with your furry friend here.

2. Local Activities that will allow you to make the best of your vacation

Millennials have a hunger for time efficiency and convenience. Lucky for them, the town of Rehoboth is one mile long and three blocks wide, making traveling easy and efficient. Many of the surrounding hotels are walking distance to the boardwalk, including the Canalside Inn.

Aside from being about a fifteen-minute walk from the beach, the Canalside Inn stands out in its modern-day approach to operating.  They have contactless check-in and check-out which caters to those individuals who are always on the go and have no time to waste. Much of your stay is self-service, even enabling guests to send text messages if they need assistance in any way.

The convenience goes beyond just our technology adept protocol, but through the free parking available, high-speed Wi-Fi, Amazon Fire Stick in-room, refrigerator, and microwave in-room, and a business center space with a printer and scanner. Our inn along with the easy navigability of Rehoboth appeals to the preferences of a tech-savvy millennial.

Millennials are known for their work ethic and desire for professional growth.  Our Custom Corporate is designed for those exact people. It re-energizes a group of individuals through workshops, guided meditations, outdoor excursions, “white space-time,” and roundtable collaboration. The outcome is to transform into a stronger leader and more successful team player after reflection and self-exploration. 

4. Social Opportunity for the Outdoor Enthusiast


According to a report from the Outdoor Foundation, millennials are the generation that spends the most time outdoors. Rehoboth offers beach-goers plenty of fresh air not only through the beaches, but through local hiking trails, golfing courses, paddle boarding, fishing, and exercise classes. Hop on a bus for the Delmarva Discovery Tour, test your balance with surfing lessons, and ride your bike through the beautiful Junction and Breakwater Trail. 

Beyond their pleasure in nature, millennials are also notable for being the most social, making them the perfect candidates for Canalside Inn’s Craft Beer and Breweries Retreat. It offers a great way to enjoy Rehoboth in the off-season being alongside locally made beer, live music, and great company! Immerse yourself in the liveliness that is Rehoboth by booking tickets here. 

5. Romantic Retreats  


Rehoboth offers a luxurious destination spot for romantic rendezvous. The Canalside Inn offers an opportunity for a romantic getaway that includes couple’s massages, champagne, roses, chocolates, games, workshops, and nature-oriented activities. The purpose is to provide a space for couples to strengthen their relationship and reignite their devotion towards one another.

According to a MidAmerica Nazarene University survey, more millennials have attended marriage counseling and couples therapy than any other generation, making our Couples Retreat an especially enticing rendezvous to that age group. With their open-mindedness and value in connectedness, this retreat would provide the restorative experience they have been searching for.
