Living in Lewes, Delaware Real Estate

Many who settle in Lewes real estate do so for the uniqueness of the community’s downtown, which skirts the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. To the east of the canal is beautiful Lewes Beach, quiet and peaceful due to the serene nature of the bay. There's also access to the Atlantic Ocean in Lewes via the beachfront located within the confines of Cape Henlopen State Park. To the west of the canal is the town’s historic district, which includes a monument to the original Dutch settlers on Pilottown Road, an impressive collection of structures at the Lewes Historical Society complex, and the shops, restaurants, and storefronts on historic Second Street.

King's Ice CreamSome of the more popular stops in downtown Lewes are the towering Zwaanendael Museum, the locally famous King’s Ice Cream, and Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church and its infamous graveyard, which actually sits on ground higher than the rest of the downtown area. If you visit the latter, be sure to check out some of the headstones in the graveyard— you won’t be disappointed!

Just adjacent to downtown Lewes is Beebe Medical Center, a fully functional hospital at the Delaware beaches and one of the best and most acclaimed medical centers in the state. With civic organizations like the Lewes Historical Society and the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, annual community festivals, including the always popular Boast the Coast Maritime Festival, Lewes is a great place to put down roots and call home.

Lewes is bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the north by the Delaware Bay. This prime location allows for easy access to New Jersey, New York and all points north via the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, which operates year-round providing service between Delaware and New Jersey. And if it’s lighthouses that pique your interest, the impressive Lightship Overfalls rests on the western edge of the canal, just north of the main bridge. One of the nation’s only surviving lightships, it has been meticulously restored by volunteers and is open year-round for tours.

Just as those original settlers did nearly 400 years ago, the waters, the great location, and the mild climate welcome you to Lewes homes for sale. So why not call the “First Town in the First State” YOUR new home at the Delaware beaches? Connect with The Oldfather Group today.
