Lewes is a small coastal community on the shores of Delaware Bay. Although the city’s population is only around 3,000, that number swells during the summer months when folks pour in from Washington, Baltimore, and Philadelphia to take advantage of the beautiful beaches (which permanent residents get to enjoy year-round).
Farther inland, the downtown area is a charming collective of locally-owned coffeehouses, restaurants, and boutique shops in a setting of historic storefronts. Parents will appreciate the superb local schools, and Cape Henlopen State Park to the east provides a terrific network of bike paths and nature trails to explore.
As of October 2017, the average apartment rent in Lewes, DE is $1,173 for one bedroom, $1,255 for two bedrooms, and $1,582 for three bedrooms. Apartment rent in Lewes has increased by 3.4% in the past year.
Given its proximity to the shore, it’s no surprise that Lewes offers fantastic seafood dining options. The Surfing Crab, located on Coastal Highway, is a favorite among locals – due in no small part to the incredible piles of crack-your-own crabs offered on the menu. For non-seafood options, Touch of Italy, located on the Rehoboth Beach border, serves up sensational Italian fare with a loyal following. Prefer to whip something up at home? Head to Food Lion in Lewes or Giant Foods in Rehoboth Beach – these are the local grocery stores, offering everything from butcher-quality meat to fresh fruits and vegetables.
Getting to various points of interest from your apartment in Lewes, DE is easy when you take advantage of the Park N’ Ride system – available from Labor Day until September 1st. This state-run system allows you to park your car in a commuter lot or simply board a DART (Delaware Authority Regional Transit) bus on foot. The DART bus makes a loop of stops downtown, popular resorts, and similar destinations. The famous Cape May-Lewes Ferry, located on Cape Henlopen Drive, offers a scenic 70-minute jaunt over to beautiful Cape May, NJ; you can drive your vehicle right on board, and it isn't uncommon to see dolphins frolicking in the ship’s wake in warmer months.
If you’re looking for apartments in Lewes, DE, you’ll quickly discover shopping is one of the biggest benefits of living in the area – Delaware is one of five states nationwide that doesn't charge sales tax. Small shops, such as the Bibilion Used Book Store on 2nd Street and the surrounding areas downtown, and more robust shopping is only a few minutes away in nearby Rehoboth Beach, or a short ferry jaunt over to Cape May, NJ – although Lewes residents should be aware that tax-free shopping doesn't extend to New Jersey. The Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach have a wonderful variety of high-end items for sale from names like Coach, Ralph Lauren and Hollister.
