Wow, it really has been a busy Summer! We've gone from London, to Italy, to Ohio, to the Outerbanks, to the Jersey Shore, and now to Rehoboth Beach!
For as long as I can remember, my parents tried to plan a family vacation every summer! These trips are some of my greatest (and most exciting) childhood memories. So, when they told me that we were all going down to Rehoboth, Delaware (one of our favorite spots to go when I was a baby), I was beyond excited!
It was Jack's first big Perri Vacation!
Our week in Rehoboth was a very traditional beach vacation. We went to the beach everyday (obviously!). We spent some time at the main beach in Rehobeth, near the boardwalk, and we also went to Cape Henlopen State Park beach. At Cape Henlopen the waves are milder and safer for younger kids like Jack, plus it was a bit less-crowded than the main beach! We also walked the boardwalk nearly every night, ate seafood and ice cream everyday and shopped! The shops in Rehobeth are so cute. There are so many little side streets and alley ways with the locally-owned shops. We also took advantage of the no sales tax at the outlets near our hotel.
It's been a long time since my family all traveled together...or stayed in such close quarters, an 8-hour car ride and a single hotel room. The trip wasn't without some tension as we got used to 24-hour a day interaction. But overall, we had a great time. We reminisced about past trips and got to enjoy Jack as he experienced all these new things. It also showed how much I have changed as a traveler since being on my own in Italy and England. I have a different way of experiencing some things while traveling compared to my parents. To each their own, but it was really interesting to see the differences.
Have you been back to your childhood vacation spot? What did you think? I'd love to know in the comments!
