General Info

Beauty And The Beach is held over the first weekend in November in beautiful Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Rehoboth is a GLBT-friendly resort town about 100 miles south of greater Philadelphia. The weather, even in November, is gorgeous. Typical temperatures during the day are in the high-60’s.

There is plenty to do at Beauty And The Beach. We provide you activities within the confines of the hotel if you wish to stay in, but the town is wide open and welcoming to TG people of every stripe. Go out and shop to your heart’s content, walk the boards, or visit many of the local bars and restuarants. You decide how to spend your time; we make it possible.

Atlantic SandsOur hotel, The Atlantic Sands, is right on the boardwalk and the beach. Every room is a deluxe accommodation equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and Internet access. Most rooms have two queen-sized beds, while some have a single king. There are also meeting spaces for workshops and vendors. All of the services and facilities are located under one roof so there’s never a need to go outside. If you do, however, you’ll find that you’re just one block from the beautiful downtown shopping district. Want to stroll the boardwalk? It’s right outside the dining room, and the beach is just beyond that! By the way, the weather in Rehoboth in late October – early November is in the high 60s to low-70s.

The vendors at BATB are special because we’ve chosen them for you based on their ability to provide you with goods and services of exceptional value. Returning this year are: Amanda Richards and Donna Miller.

Oh, I forgot to tell you about the food! It is incredible. Every meal is a masterpiece and the desserts are to die for. This is not your typical convention center rubber-chicken meal. The food preparation and presentation are truly exceptional. If you have specific dietary needs, please let us know ahead of time.

The CDS Beauty And The Beach Weekend is produced by me, JoAnn Roberts and a group of my friends. We have made every effort to create an event that will be a memorable experience for everyone involved. The weekend is designed to give you an opportunity to live out your fantasies. Dress to your heart’s content. Bring your entire wardrobe! The people you’ll meet here are some of the nicest you’ll ever meet anywhere. They come from different backgrounds, but they all share the same desire: to get away and let “her” roam free. We also encourage and welcome couples to attend and we usually get a large group of them at the weekend. If your partner wonders “Are there other women who deal with this?” then here’s where she’ll meet them. This is a great place to get to know your partner better.
