Lewes, DE

Moto for Lewes is “The First town in the First State” ! Lewes was founded on June, 3, 1631 by Dutch settlers and named Zwaanendael. We have not been here quite as long but do know why the area was so loved. Part of Delawares rapidly growing Cape Region this is an area that is hard to resist for those that seek the great proximity to all of the East coast power areas such as the Washington DC , New York, Philadelphia  and more. Mixed with a beach flavor how could you go wrong to call this home or even a great second home area!
