The Lewes Visitors Center at the Fisher-Martin House is open with safe social distancing limits and  we hand sanitizing equipment.  For additional information, contact us by email at [email protected] or by calling 302-645-8073 during business hours, Monday through Friday 10 am-4 pm.

Delaware's Governor Carney, in coordination with Governors of other surrounding states and in partnership with other Delaware organizations, has taken major step to re-open businesses and loosen restrictions on activities in the state.  Read more about how decisions have been made with safety considerations.  As of June 1, visitors from outside the state are welcome and no longer need to quarantine for 14 days but they do need to continue social distancing and be mindful of other safety measures requested by businesses.  Also, as of June 1, many restaurants are offering dine-in service by reservation only, with restrictions on distance between tables with no more than 30% of fire code capacity inside, and some are expanding their outdoor dining.  

The City of Lewes welcomes visitors and locals to once again enjoy all that Lewes has to offer in a manner that is safe for all.  We strive to keep our Calendar of Events up-to-date, however many things are subject to change and we encourage you to check the events’ sponsoring organizations website to confirm (you can link to their website by clicking on the event from the Calendar).

Stores and restaurants in Lewes are re-opening at various times  as soon as owners have plans and supplies in place to ensure safety of customers and employees.  They are working diligently to open their doors and welcome back locals and visitors.  Each business is developing their own individual plans to re-open and for your convenience, we have provided lists of shops and restaurants below that include direct links to their social media and/or websites so that you can be confident that the information you find has been updated by that business.

The City of Lewes, Delaware is located where the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet, the area known as Cape Henlopen. The naturally beautiful area with beaches on both the ocean and the bay, trails, and nature preserves add to the many reasons to visit this small historic town founded by the Dutch in 1631. In addition to natural beauty, this charming city offers a wonderful historic district, with architecture dating back to the 17th century, museums, special tours, cozy accommodations, restaurants to please any palate, and unique shops and boutiques all within walking distance of each other.

Among the many reasons that people are attracted to Lewes is to experience the many exciting events here. There is something for everyone - year 'round. They offer fun, education, live music and theater, outdoor activities, an independent film festival, an award-winning farmers market, and so much more!

Parking in Lewes is available on both sides of the canal. 


To promote local shopping in the mornings, parking in town is free until noon through Labor Day. 

The meters in town are in effect from noon until 8 pm daily at $1 per hour.  
Parking at the beach is metered $2 per hour from 9 am to 8 pm.
