Directions/Maps/Parking

The Polar Bear Plunge Headquarters (site of registration on Friday night and Saturday) is located at the Atlantic Sands Hotel at the end of Baltimore Avenue on the Boardwalk. Registration on Sunday is at the end of Rehoboth Avenue.

Going north or south, take the Rehoboth Avenue exit off of Route 1 (located just north of Dewey Beach and south of Lewes) and head toward the ocean. To get to the Atlantic Sands, turn left on First Street and right on Baltimore Avenue. 

Where should you park?

Parking is on your own, unless of course you stay at one of the several hotels offering great deals (and free parking) to our Polar Bears.

How early should you arrive?

The crowd will be similar to a summer holiday weekend at the beach, and in fact, some claim even bigger. So if you are arriving Sunday morning, our only advice is to come early, be patient looking for a spot, and don’t park in any spaces that are marked “permit only,” “handicap,” or any other way forbidding parking. Even though it’s not beach season, tickets will still be issued if you park illegally.
