So many people focus on the ocean and the boardwalk when they visit Rehoboth Beach, and they don’t even realize the best shopping in Delaware is right under their noses. Just steps away from the sand, find the Penny Lane Mall, which is home to dozens of vendors and shops selling the most interesting finds in the First State.

Find out more about this delightful open-air market on its Facebook page. Parking can be tricky in the summertime, but if you visit after Labor Day you can enjoy smaller crowds and frequent end-of-season sidewalk sales.

While you are in the area, make time to visit The Coziest Bookstore In Delaware in the neighboring town of Lewes.
