A gay, car-driving co-worker at Former Day Job knew that Hubby and I don’t own a car. When I mentioned last year that we wanted to go to the beach, he wondered if the Rehoboth Beach bus was still operating. No, it turns out, it wasn’t.
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is a popular gay destination, but as we discovered when we finally did visit (by rented car) that like Dupont Circle and other allegedly gay ghettos, the population and services were far more mixed than is commonly described. So Rehoboth offers seaside kitch and full-on camp, fine dining and hot dogs. We really liked it (and Lewes, and Ocean City, Maryland, too, but all for different reasons.)
And this year, the bus is back and is brand new. Yes, it’s marketed to gay men. No, I don’t think we (they) will be the only ones on it. One trip weekly — or week-end-ly, really — and a decent value if you’re heading out alone or as a couple.
