There’s always something to do at Governors!
At Governors, you really can have it all! You can peddle or stroll the Junction & Breakwater Trail for a quick and scenic commute to downtown Lewes. Or explore all that downtown has to offer, from award-winning, locally-owned eateries to quaint shops and antique stores. Don’t feel like going out? Stay close to home and enjoy drinks with your neighbors at the 5 O’clock Island Bar community amenity!
Enjoy the outdoors with direct access to the Junction and Breakwater Trail or challenge friends to a tennis or pickle ball match on one of our many courts. Kids can enjoy an extensive playground area and park their bikes at one of our many community bike racks.
Governors will feature a sunken “island style” cabana bar area accessible by a bridge spanning the pool. This truly unique amenity will offer a swim-up bar, fireplace, and outdoor relaxation area. In addition, the expansive patio will have private cabanas and a grilling area.
Delaware is truly a small wonder and I am certainly glad my family and I live here to experience it.
