Lewes

Lewes is an interesting combination of historic bay town (one that maintains some industry on the water), summer resort destination and year-round hub of coastal Sussex—home of the stellar Cape Henlopen School District. It offers easy access to bay beaches in town and ocean beaches at Cape Henlopen State Park. Second Street offers outstanding shopping and dining. And the town offers myriad historic homes, as well as places on Lewes Beach that range from more modern to more funky. Residents—longtimers and newcomers—are equally proud of their town. An active historic society and resident artists help define the vibe.
