Biking is one of the most favored activities for tourists. It's a great way to get exercise all the while taking in the beautiful scenery that surrounds you. Per Delaware State Law, cyclists must obey all laws governing motor vehicles including riding with traffic (rather than against it) as well as having the appropriate lighting on the bicycle. Cyclists are also encouraged to wear helmets for added safety. If you need to rent a bicycle during your stay, we recommend Bike To Go, just a few doors down from the Atlantis Inn.
There are many opportunities for cycling along the Delaware Coast. Until 10am daily, visitors may ride their bicycle along the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, just 1.5 blocks from the Atlantis Inn.
