Chesapeake Bay Travel Guide

Pretty harbors, the best of seafood, quaint historic houses, charming towns, winding back roads - the Chesapeake Bay area has a lot going for it! Beautiful and vast, the Chesapeake Bay was a major maritime center during the colonial times. Once a vibrant fishing region, with many small fishing villages scattered along the bay, Chesapeake Bay has suffered in recent times because of over-fishing and pollution. Tourism is a major industry with people coming here to enjoy the relaxed pace of life, many preferring to cruise from one historic town to another and generally enjoying all kinds of maritime activities.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your bags and head for Chesapeake Bay to feel the salty sea-spray on your face, and after a enjoyable day of sailing or cycling, sink your teeth into the most delicious soft-shell crabs!

Chesapeake has its origin in a Native Indian word chesepiooc, meaning great shellfish bay!
