Dewey Beach Homes for Sale
Named for Spanish-American War hero Admiral George Dewey, the coastal Delaware town of Dewey Beach is quite small (only one mile long and two blocks wide) and is widely known for its exuberant nightlife during the area’s warm weather season. As the “smaller sister” to neighboring Rehoboth Beach, Dewey also enjoys a beautiful stretch of beachfront and scores of fine restaurants and eateries, both on the ocean block and on the opposite side of Route 1, along the Rehoboth Bay. In Dewey Beach, you'll find an array of beachfront condominiums along with highly-coveted cottages near the water. This resort town is an extremely popular spot for partygoers and families during the summer, but also becomes pleasantly quiet during the off-season. It's a great place to spend time with the kids or escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
