Locals and visitors are invited to step onto the Jolly Trolley bus and step back in time as the Rehoboth Beach Museum hosts guided history tours of the city. Tours last approximately 50 minutes and include a welcome from the Rev. Robert Todd, founder of the Rehoboth Camp Meeting Association, and a lady parishioner at the historic Anna Hazzard Tent House. Visitors and locals will experience firsthand the history of Rehoboth Beach, including the birth of the town as a Methodist Camp Meeting site and its growth as a resort town. Learn about shipwrecks, submarines, storms and sand dunes. 

Tours begin at 9 a.m., Thursdays, June 22, Aug. 17 and 24, Sept. 21 and Oct. 13. There will be back-to-back tours at 9 and 11 a.m., Friday, Oct. 27. All trolley tours start and end at the Anna Hazzard Museum at 17 Christian St. For more information and to make reservations, call the museum at 302-227-7310.

The Jolly Trolley began in 1970 when a group of locals wanted to have a means of transportation that would let visitors get a feel for the sights and sounds of Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach.

The Rehoboth Beach Museum is at 511 Rehoboth Ave. For more information, go to
