Kayaks, paddleboards, and bikes are available to rent. There is a spa as well. If you go to you tube and search for the Peninsula, Millsboro you can view the resort.
The Peninsula has been named BEST RESORT in Delaware for its world-class amenities and for its distinctive and luxurious design. The first thing you see as you enter the gated Peninsula grounds is a beautiful fountain followed by a tree lined, elegant main "esplanade"-which leads thorough the resort…a combination of beautiful homes, natural settings, nature paths, etc. For the holidays, the evening view is spectacular with lighted trees for each community. In the spring, colorful tulips and spring flowers greet you. As you enjoy the beauty of the surroundings as you drive up the esplanade, you feel your body relax and stress disappear.

Use of the bay beach is free. The sandy bay beach is great for seeing the sunrise or letting little children explore the beach and nature. I have a storage area that contains two old fashioned coaster bikes for guest use as well as beach chairs, beach toys, a beach umbrella, and miscellaneous items. The Peninsula is a great place for walking, running, or bike riding.

There is a water slide park on Route 1, goofy golf, movies, go cart racing, etc.
The Peninsula is located on the Eastern Shore, a large, interesting part of the country south of Philadelphia and Wilmington and across the Chesapeake Bay from Baltimore, Annapolis, and DC. From our condo, you can take many day trips to places on the eastern shore as well as along the Atlantic coast. The spring and fall off season are great times to visit. The weather is good, rates are low, and there is a lot to do within a one or two hours’ drive.
Day trips from the condo include the nautical town of St. Michael's Maryland, the Salisbury zoo and Ward Waterfowl Museum, Ocean City Md, the quaint towns of Berlin, MD, Lewes, DE, Milton, DE and many, many more. Go to Dover, DE and see the Air Mobility Command Museum or head to northern Delaware area for the famous Longwood Gardens, Winterthur museum and gardens, or the Hagley Museum. Take the ferry across the Delaware Bay, enjoy the boat ride, and go to the Victorian town of Cape May, New Jersey- a great day trip. South is the Chincoteague National Wildlife Area, NASA’s Wallops Island, and Assateague Island. Locals even take a bus trip to New York City for the day. My condo can be your place to relax after a busy day sightseeing. Unlike many states, the geography, the history, and the interesting sites are many and varied within short distances from the Peninsula. There is something for everyone nearby.
Off season there are many festivals and special events year-round in the Rehoboth area. In the fall, the Jazz Festival and Sea Witch Festival are very, very popular. In the spring, the kite festival at Cape Henlopen State Park is a wonderful event for adults and children. Nearby towns also have special events. For example, there is an Apple Scrapple festival in Bridgeville, DE, colonial Dover Days in Dover, Delaware, Fifer Farms Fall Fest, and many, many more special events. What is special about all these events, is there is a small town flavor to them. They are not commercialized and great for families and people wanting to enjoy a week-end away.
