The Jolly Trolley began when a group of locals wanted to have a means of transportation that would let visitors get a feel for the sights, smells and different experiences of two resort areas, Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach. The Jolly Trolley began its first runs in 1970. Go to www.jollytrolley.com.
