Lewes hotels map
Lewes intro.Right on the coast in the middle of Delaware, in America's northeast, Lewes is a former post used by the Dutch for whaling and trading back in the early 17th century. Today, it is better known for its ferry link to southern New Jersey, to the north. The ferry links and its proximity to Washington DC has made the town a focal point for visitors looking to make the most of its sandy beach during the summer. Cultural highlights here include the Zwaanendael Museum, named after Delaware's first Dutch settlement, giving a detailed history of the area's and state's unique and changing coastline. The dock is in many ways the focal point of the town, attracting numerous boats from spring until the end of summer. Lewes hotels are concentrated in the area on and around Savannah Road, which leads to the main promenade at Bayview Avenue, the site of most of the local entertainment.
