Decorated for the holidays, the shops and restaurants along Rehoboth Avenue just needed the touch of fresh snow to complete the perfect Christmas village look. This Norman Rockwell-like scene is rare for our beach towns, but in 2018, nature bestowed the gift of snow.

Seasonal window shopping is one of the many great joys of the holiday season. Scandinavian Occasion, on Rehoboth Avenue, rises above and beyond in the eye-catching category. The store shines with too many Santas to count, surrounded by a wealth of holiday items, all in a sea in which glass jellyfish float leisurely.
