Lewes — 6 nights

Lewes is an incorporated city on the Delaware Bay in eastern Sussex County, Delaware. Venture out of the city with trips to Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery (in Frankford) and Dover (John Dickinson Plantation, Air Mobility Command Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cape Henlopen State Park, take in the waterfront at Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, enjoy the sand and surf at Delaware Seashore State Park, and find something for the whole family at Funland.

The First State
Nicknamed the "First State" for its role in ratifying the U.S. Constitution, Delaware is only 160 km (100 mi) long and about 80 km (49 mi) wide at its widest point. Despite its small size, the state is a patchwork of complex and diverse communities, with an industrialized north and rural south. More than just a tax-free shopping haven, the state features great sightseeing in its picturesque countryside interspersed with sleepy colonial villages and long sandy beaches. It also offers several organized trail systems that focus on things to do in the outdoors, including history, geocaching, culinary activities, and wine and spirits. Largely because of its size, Delaware remains one of the country's least-explored states.
