Cape Henlopen State Park
Things to do in Lewes
Perched by the side of a scenic canal close to the sea, this town breathes a salty nautical air. Waterside restaurants and hotels beckon travelers inside to enjoy the view over cocktails. Boat tours and fishing expeditions tempt passersby to embark on a sea adventure. While wandering the streets of this old village, you get the sense there’s plenty of things to do on dry land as well: Regular tours and museums offer an insider’s view of the town’s architecture and history, and the boutiques along Second Street are filled with antiques and rare finds. Some of the coast’s best dining is here, and just to the east, a whole world of nature trails and seaside beauty awaits Cape Henlopen State Park.
