    About Lewes

    Lewes, Delaware, is an incorporated city on the Delaware Bay in eastern Sussex County. Along with neighboring Rehoboth Beach, Lewes is one of the principal cities of Delaware’s rapidly growing Cape Region. The city lies within the Salisbury, Maryland–Delaware Metropolitan Statistical Area.

    Lewes proudly claims to be “The First Town in The First State.” Lewes was the site of the first European settlement in Delaware –a whaling and trading post that Dutch settlers founded on June 3, 1631 – and named Zwaanendael (Swan Valley).

    Lewes serves as a vacation and resort spot popular with residents of Washington, D.C., and the surrounding suburbs. Lewes is also home to several iconic lighthouses in the Delaware Bay: Delaware Breakwater East End Light and the Harbor of Refuge Light.
