Destination? Lewes, Delaware, Historic Lewes is in Bloom, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware, Activities, Events…Beautiful Day at the DE Beaches


Simple pleasures, enjoying the moment, strolling Historic Lewes, Delaware…it is in Bloom!  Each DE Beach has its own personality.  Lewes Historic District is full of shops, restaurants….also, some of the oldest homes in the state.  Afterall, Lewes is the First Town in the First State.  Lewes is a gem…a town well treasured by its residents, and long-time visitors, as well.



On Front Street you will find the 1812 Memorial Park.  On April 6 through April 8, 1813 Lewes sustained heavy cannon fire from the British ships, and was bombarded by Congreve rockets, the first use of this technology against the Americans.

Not knowing was Congreve rockets were…I was curious.  These rockets were developed by Sir William Congreve in 1804.  He registered 2 patents, and published 3 books on rocketry. It is a long story, but one interesting tidbit is the fact that: It was the use of ship launched Congreve rockets by the British in the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the U.S. in 1814 that inspired the fifth line of the first verse of the United States’ National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner”: “and the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air”.


Along with the 1812 Memorial Park, on Front Street, you will find the City Dock.  200 feet long along Front Street, it can accommodate small and large vessels.  For boat slip info., please call 302-644-9069.
