Lewes Overview

Lewes is an incorporated city in Sussex County, Delaware, United States, on the Delmarva Peninsula. According to 2006 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the city is 3,116.[1] It is part of the Seaford, Delaware, Micropolitan Statistical Area.

Because Lewes was the earliest town founded in the state, and because Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution, the town refers to itself as "The first town in the first state." Lewes is named after the town of Lewes in England, which also is situated in a county named Sussex (from which Sussex County, Delaware, takes its name). Lewes, Sussex, England, also has the same seal.

Lewes and the towns of Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany, and Fenwick Island constitute Delaware's beach resort area, Sussex County's most densely populated and fastest-growing area.

Lewes is the southern terminus of the Cape May – Lewes Ferry.

Lewes is adjacent to Cape Henlopen State Park and is close to the outlet malls of Rehoboth Beach. Lewes is served by a branch of the Delaware Coast Line Railway that originates in Georgetown.

It serves as a vacation and resort spot popular with residents of Washington, D.C., and the surrounding suburbs. Even though the city technically sits on the lower reach of the Delaware Bay, it is nonetheless considered an ocean resort, particularly as the ocean is nearby at Cape Henlopen.

In addition to being a tourist destination, Lewes is also the home of the Zwaanendael Museum, which features exhibits about Delaware's history. Second Street is the town's main street and has many shops, restaurants, and historical venues. Fisherman's Wharf is a dock that stretches along the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal. It features multiple restaurants and bait shops, and in season the dock hosts hundreds of boats from all over. Also, United States Lightship Overfalls (LV-118/WAL-539) is moored there. It is owned by the Overfalls Maritime Museum Foundation (OMMF) and is one of seven surviving lightships at museums in the United States.
