REHOBOTH BEACH, DEL.

Why go: An already mellow beach enclave becomes even more relaxed once the children are back in school.

Temperatures: In September, average air temperatures range from the upper 70s during the day to low 60s at night. Water temps are around 70 degrees. October sees a range from the upper 60s to low 50s, with water temps in the low 60s.

Lodging: As in other beach towns, rental houses, motels and hotels are widely available. Rehoboth's B&Bs often are booked for early autumn weekends, but rooms at inns can be found, some for less than half the summer rate. The Bellmoor (800-425-2355, http://www.thebellmoor.com), for instance, charged $245 a night for a queen-size garden room during a summer weekday; the weekday rate is $115 during the fall.

Don't miss: The 10th annual Independent Film Festival will show 100 features, documentaries and short films Nov. 7-11; admission varies per film (around $9).

Other events: Queen Latifah and Dionne Warwick are among those performing at the 18th annual Autumn Jazz Festival Oct. 10-14; prices vary by show. . . . The Oct. 26-28 Sea Witch Halloween and Fiddler Festival includes hayrides, a five-kilometer foot race and costume contests for humans and dogs.
