Tours start at the bandstand at 9 a.m. and offer a 60-minute gentle stroll around downtown with a guide. No smartphone app is needed and tour goers spend their time listening and looking at historic sites along the way, rather than at a phone. The cost of the tours is a $10 donation to the Society, cash only, payable to the tour guide. Reservations for the walking tours are strongly suggested and may be obtained by signing up online at: rehobothbeachmuseum.org.
