If you and your pooch are looking to take an early morning stroll while peering out into Delaware Bay, the local beach found in Lewes - a small, quaint coastal town - is the ideal location for you. Lewes Beach is a unique find as the strip of beach located right on Delaware Bay offers you a lookout into the wavy waters of the Atlantic Ocean as well as the calmer waters of the bay.
Beach regulations welcome you and your four-legged friend to take a stroll any time before 8:00 am or after 6:00 pm during the on-season, giving you the perfect opportunity to admire the picturesque sunrises and sunsets over the bay. As long as your pooch remains on-leash and you’re carrying waste removal bags at all times, you will be set for your journey.
Lewes Beach also gives you and your pooch a direct walking path to Cape Henlopen State Park, located on a peninsula separating Delaware Bay from the Atlantic. The State Park is the perfect place for your pooch to stretch their legs in the designated off-leash zones for pets while taking advantage of the natural paths and various lookout points to the Atlantic.
After venturing along the beach and through the State Park, don’t be afraid to wander into the streets of Lewes to check out the multitude of dog-friendly opportunities that await you. Lewes not only holds a reputation for being one of the most pleasant communities in Delaware, but it is also known for its pet-friendly attitude, and more importantly, its dog-loving nature.
P.U.P.S of Lewes pet store is one example of a pet-friendly location you and your pooch can check out to see the different events being hosted or to just socialize with other four-legged visitors. If you're looking to spend the night, Crazy L at Willow Creek B&B provides accommodations for you and your pooch, not to mention a variety of dog amenities.
To end off your getaway in Lewes, don’t forget to take your pup back to the beach after 6:30 pm for a cool evening walk, where you will be greeted by the peaceful sight of the sun setting over the bay.
