Since Lewes was founded in 1631, it developed into a picturesque city with a vibrant community. When you book with one of the Lewes hotels, you can step back in time and enjoy the city’s historic heritage and the beauty that comes with its location. Lewes is situated where the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean meet at Cape Henlopen so you’ll get to soak up the sun, sand and the sea in this quiet town.
A trip to Lewes is truly a retreat. Take in every inch of the city’s beauty by heading to Cape Henlopen State Park where you’ll find miles of beautiful beaches, nature trails and even bird sanctuaries. This 3,000-acre park is home to the famous, “walking” sand dunes and a World War II Observation Tower. Get your fill of history and outdoor recreation at this massive park or head to one of the many other nearby beaches like Rehoboth Beach where you’ll find a mile-long boardwalk and more local shops and restaurants. The good thing about this old town is that it’s small enough to be a walking town. Within a half-square mile, you’ll find the city’s Historic district, museums, fine dining options, a great variety of boutiques and shops and more.
Whether you’re with your family or on a romantic getaway, the city not only has beautiful state parks but stables and wineries for the well-rounded trip. Winswept Stables is located on forty acres of farm and wooded trails and has perfect places for you and your children, significant other, or even colleagues to enjoy learning how to ride horses!
