Long known as ‘The First Town in the First State,’ Lewes is rich in history and culture, with Victorian Homes and other historical buildings littered throughout the landscape.
With a popular, old-fashioned main street that offers a variety of small town eateries and shops, in-town Lewes is a relaxing – yet still lively – destination.
Other highlights include the local Lewes Beach (complete with bordering homes both for rent and sale), the massive Cape Henlopen State Park (which sports another beach of its own) and the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. Water surrounds the town, providing for breathtaking sunsets and relaxing evenings watching boats return from a day’s journey.
Also nearby is the renowned Cape May-Lewes Ferry, which allows for quick access to the southern shores of New Jersey.
