    Lewes is the earliest European settlement in Delaware, and boasts that it is the "First Town in the First State."

Nowadays, Lewes is a pleasant seaside village located at the point where Delaware Bay meets...

  • Driving Through Delaware

    Just a note,when driving through Delaware make sure you fill up on gas beforehand. I was heading to Rehoboth Beach from Wilmington but once I exited off of I-95 onto Route 1 South ,civilization pretty much died off and I couldn't find so much as a convenience store much less a gas station! I did take an exit heading towards Odessa that had a sign...

    Indian River Inlet, a Delaware State Park. Covers bay and ocean. Under-toe not bad, no jelly fish (they are party poopers). No bugs! I like nature, (except for the buggy parts). Dad can fish, Mom can read and sun, kids swim in life guarded water. Nice sand. Snack bar is expensive, and NOT GOOD. Take a picnic lunch if possible. Showers, rest rooms,...

  • Rehoboth Beach Dining

    Rehoboth Beach, once known only for fries and salt water taffy, now has dining establishments to rival anything in Wilmington...or much of Philly. Don't forget to try the very fine local beer, Dogfish Head, available in several varieties.

    Everyone will tell you that you have to go to the outlet malls and if shopping is your thing, then by all means knock yourself out. I hear that the shopping is excellent. But for my money, I say go to Dogfish Head. Hitting the Dogfish Head Brewery on a lucky half-price burger night which also coincided with happy hour!

    GO to the 'Punkin' Chunk' near Lewes the weekend after Hallowe'en, for some hilarious demonstrations of human ingenuity. Different categories of technology seek to throw regulation-sized/weight pumpkins for distance. It's like a county fair! Same as above, plus visit the shore AFTER the tourist season's over!

    Stop by the Service Centre on the Delaware Turnpike! Actually, you probably don't have too much of a choice. It's the only place to stop on the turnnpike without having to pay, so everybody stops real to enjoy some tax-free shopping. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot of great things on sale here, so you'll just have to make do with a hot dog...

    Go to Newark and check out the Univ. of Delaware, and eat and drink on Main Street. Try to get to a football game, too. I live about 10 minutes from Newark, so I frequently visit the town. It doesn't have much to offer, just a little local character. Actually, my fondest memories of Delaware are going to the beaches in the southern part of the...
