A Favorite Chesapeake Bay Destination
Apr 19, 2015 by: JeremyPF from Lancaster, Pennsylvania
A favorite destination for boaters from the nearby rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, Chesapeake City is a place worth visiting. With five bed and breakfasts, fine restaurants and shops the entire City can be walked in under an hour. Download the Walking Tour Map from the Chesapeake City website and you'll be well armed to see the homes built around the 18th century (most of the homes in the City have a plaque describing a brief history of the home). Several antique shops, curio's, boutique and restaurants are all neatly assembled just a few minutes from the C & D canal, which leads into the head of the Chesapeake Bay. I learned that the C & D Canal was built to allow for a short cut from Baltimore Bay to the Chesapeake Bay - a saving of roughly 300 miles when compared to making the trip via Cape Charles, Virginia. Many of the homes we saw in Chesapeake City were once owned by Captains of the steamships used in the area. There are about four or five restaurants in the town and at least 3 are actually on the water. Chesapeake City gets very busy but there is adequate parking. Highly recommended for a laid back visit to see what life was like years ago in a quaint harbor town!
I rented a boat for a half day fishing trip.

Trolling for striped bass. I've catch several, only three the permitted size. Good boat, good people, nice trip, not enough emotion (because of the size of the fish)

The bridges do drive are amazing. We drove from Norfolk back to MD over the bay and it was just stunning especially early in the morning when the sun is riding and the sky seems to be one with the sea, have to go back. The bay was filled with boats and early morning fishers.
Experience in Sail boat

We took this ride on a sailboat from Annapolis in Maryland and sailed into the sea for two hrs.The weather was extremely good and the thirty odd persons on board were entertained to some good commentary and beverages and chips.The Annapolis area is beautiful with big restaurants and awesome food.One should enjoy this place at weekends
