Parking at Bethany and/or Rehoboth Beach

We'll be traveling to Bethany Beach in June and i was wondering if anyone had information about parking near the beach. I saw a post about parking passes for the day but somehow cannot find it now. I believe it mentioned a kiosk where the all day pass could be purchased.

We may also travel to Rehoboth Beach so if anyone could share information about parking there it would be appreciated.

In Bethany, the parking kiosks take credit cards, no need for quarters. When you use a credit card you have to get a minimum of 2 hours (~$3), but you can certainly get more. You enter how many hours you want on the kiosk, it charges your card, and prints a receipt with a time on it; you have to place this in your windshield. Important: Be back by that time!!! The BB police are always out and checking and you *will* get a ticket if you go over!

The state park pass is a great idea if you will use it at least 6-7 times. I have bought it the past several years and I've figured out that's the break even point vs paying for parking each day you go. Last summer I believe it was $10/day at the state park. The nice thing about the park (Fenwick is our favorite) is that you're parking right next to the beach, whereas at the boardwalk downtown, you may have to walk a bit depending on where you end up finding a spot.

*However* be forewarned that on busy weekends (like July 4th) the state park lot can fill up and have a line of cars waiting to get in. Of course, when that's the case, there's no parking downtown either.

Depending on where you are staying, you might be able to take advantage of the town bus/trolley or a beach shuttle from your rental community.

We'll be in Bethany beach next Monday and will use parkmobile app to pay for parking parking. We drive from Washington DC and arrive pretty early probably 8am. What time does the parking open or it opens 24/7?

Also, which street has more parking space?

We prefer to park close to the beach if possible

The parking meters start at 10am sharp and if you use quarters it is $2 an hour so the park app is the way to go.
