On the Delaware Bay and close to the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Henlopen State Park, Lewes was incorporated in 1883.

It is, however, the oldest town in Delaware.

Founded in 1631, Lewes is known as the "First Town in the First State".

In addition to historic sight-seeing including a walking tour of the city's historic district, Lewes is well-known for its fishing marinas, charter boats, its Victorian architecture, its bay and ocean beaches, and the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.

More recently, Lewes has become a shopping mecca with a charming downtown shopping district on Second Street and tax-free outlet shopping on Route 1 in nearby Rehoboth Beach.
