Visiting Chesapeake

What to Do by Maryland’s Beloved Bay

Maryland has many different areas each with its own features, sometimes called ‘America in Miniature’ this state has much to offer for those who like some good variation. Though often the urban part of Maryland is often portrayed in film and TV thanks to Baltimore being a boiling pot of issues, Maryland has a much calmer side and one that is very close to nature. The Chesapeake Bay works its way out into the Atlantic Ocean and is an ideal spot for everything water related. From providing the area with freshly caught cuisine to giving rise to an enormous movement of boat loving folk, this area is now one of Maryland’s most well loved and most visited. Here are just a few things that a short trip to the Bay can give you.

Go Sailing

Home to Annapolis which isn’t just any sailing spot, this is the sailing capital of America. Boat mad sea men and sea women congregate here en masse and have their own water loving communities. Here you can expect boat shows that celebrate the most luxury sea fairing craft you can imagine as well as the fastest ones around for the races that occur here. There are boat festivals, boat tours and it is also the place where you can take a look around the Naval academy. Being on the bay and sailing out to sea is a natural thing here, a lifestyle that certainly has its appeal and one which may just entice you in.

In fitting with the very water-centric theme here one of the most unique tourist attractions here just happens to be in the water itself. The Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse looks like a strange house floating above the waters, but it was built in 1875 to help and guide those out at sea around the area. Today you can visit the quirky hexagonal shaped cabin that can only be accessed by boat and take a look at this historical monument yourself.

Catch Seafood

As you may imagine from such a coastal community much of the local diet involves food from the waters. Expect to dine on some great seafood during your stay here as many eateries are packed with freshly caught fish and molluscs. If you’d like to see the process in action or fancy yourself as a fisherman of the future, why not jump aboard a boat with a waterman and see how you stack up. On these small group tours you can talk with a professional and try crabbing, oystering or fishing as you cruise along the bay, with the option of eating what you catch later on.

Art & Shopping

If being on water sea makes you a little queasy or you are more of a creative, you can still find much to do in the Chesapeake area. For events the local Avalon theatre will provide you with all you could need while the local art museums should keep you happy during the day. The area of Chestertown has a growing art community while many spots like Smith island are full of local crafting and creating experts that should keep you content.
