Delaware is adorable, but we already knew that.  But did you know Lewes was named one of the cutest towns on the East Coast.

The people at Best Life Online have released the Top 6 Cutest Towns on the East Coast list for 2022 and Lewes, Delaware ranked #6 overall.

The luxury service magazine had this to say about the town:

Located near popular Rehoboth Beach is the quaint town of Lewes, Delaware. It’s known as a “walking town,” per its official website, and it was founded all the way back in 1632. The views at Cape Henlopen State Park are not to be missed, and if you need to unwind after a day of travel, you’ll be able to indulge in a nice glass of vino.

Travel blogger and co-founder of Dream Big, a travel blog said “Lewes is a nice place you can easily explore on foot!” Walk along the waterfront streets filled with restaurants, local boutiques, and interesting museums for a relaxing afternoon. There are also boat tours and kayaks for hire, so you can admire the antique buildings from the water.”

He also says to check out Nassau Valley Vineyards.

Lewes was ranked #6 on the list. Port Clyde, Maine was ranked #1 overall followed by Mystic, Connecticut, Duck, North Carolina, St. Michaels, Maryland, and Juliette, Georgia respectively.

Lewes is a walking town. Within a half-square mile you will find the Historic district, museums, many Inns, Bed & Breakfasts, fine restaurants, and a variety of fine shops. Take our tour of the town, and see why we are proud to call it home their website says.

Delaware Ranked As A Top 10 Most Charitable State

Giving back is always rewarding. So it is no shock to see Delaware ranked as a Top 10 most charitable state.

Wallet Hub ranked all 50 states on their charitable nature.

In order to come up with their list Wallet Hub said “In order to determine the most philanthropic states, WalletHub compared the 50 states across two key dimensions, “Volunteering & Service” and “Charitable Giving.”

Utah was ranked as the most charitable state in America. Delaware sits in the Top 10 coming in at #8.

Pennsylvania beat Delaware coming in at #7 and New Jersey was ranked #32 overall.

Maryland was ranked as the #2 overall Most Charitable State.

According to Wallet Hub “Americans do more than just reach in their pockets to help others, though. They also contribute their time — and plenty of it. Nearly 78 million people volunteer in the U.S., serving a combined total of 5.8 billion hours per year, the equivalent of $147 billion of service.”

So where does the United State rank as a charitable nation? Wallet Hub reports that we are the 19th most charitable nation in the world.

“U.S. donors in 2020 still gave nearly $485 billion to charity, with 67% of the funds coming directly from individuals, according to the National Philanthropic Trust,” the study says.

Delaware was tied for most charities per capita. The first state came in at #1 in those rankings tied with Vermont and Montana.

Delaware also ranked 9th overall in Volunteering & Service and 20th overall in Charitable Giving.
