Lewes is an incorporated city on the Delaware Bay in eastern Sussex County, Delaware. Discover out-of-the-way places like Johnson Victrola Museum and Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village. Get some historical perspective at Pemberton Historical Park and Fort Miles Historic Area at Cape Henlopen State Park. Step out of Lewes to go to Salisbury and see The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the landscape on two wheels at Junction and Breakwater Trail, look for all kinds of wild species at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, and look for gifts at Browseabout Books.
