Let Us Guide You Through Rehoboth Beach
Looking for a cost-effective way to get around town? Scooters are the answer! The city classifies scooters as “two-wheeled, with a step-through chassis, and powered by a motor.” Mopeds are included. Any vehicle with an MC tag issued by the DMV is deemed a motorcycle and not eligible for scooter permits.
From May 15 to September 15, all scooters must have a permit to park on city streets and parking lots every weekday, all day, unless paying at a parking meter. Permits are $40 for the season and are sold at the Rehoboth Beach Parking Department. Make sure your permit is affixed to the front of the scooter. The rear wheel should be placed against the curb wherever possible when you park. Permits can be obtained by guests and locals alike!

Where to Scoot
Escape to the best-kept secret in town, Deauville Beach! This secluded beach serves as a nice reprieve from the bustling boardwalk scene. You can also pack up a tasty lunch from our beautiful Victoria’s Restaurant and enjoy a picnic at Lake Gerar Park. Speed over to Funland and indulge in a day filled with nostalgic amusement games. You can go anywhere on your scooter, so feel free to ask our knowledgeable staff for recommendations!
When you visit this summer, make sure you pay attention to the city’s designated scooter parking. They’re usually clearly labeled “Scooter Only,” but you can find more information online. If ever in doubt, ask a local (or consult this handy Rehoboth Beach scooter guide)! And please, wear a helmet for safer travels.
