My sister lives in Rehoboth Beach and I have visited many times over the years. It is jam packed with tourists during the summer. Most visitors, and many residents, are from D.C. Some are from NJ, just a short ferry ride across the Delaware River. I have never carried, OC or CC, in deference to my sister and not wanting to cause her any embarassment or problems. I have no idea what the official policy is concerning OC, but I expect that panic, running in the street, screaming and ducking for cover would be the reaction of most of the sheeple. This is one of the most liberal cities on the east coast. There is a strong arts community and a large gay population. You are going into the teeth of the tiger. Good luck.
