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

This was our first time in this area. We absolutely loved it. Quaint and romantic,full of history and charm.We stayed on the North Shore. The homes were so well kept,and the coastal sections were very clean and appealing.There was a beach area available for swimming and recreation for the kids.Don't expect to go shopping on a Monday,most of the shops...

On a lovely evening when we had just planned to look at shells and wander, we all waded out and had a great time. Lovely sand feels great on the feet. Not very salty here with the confluence of the Susquehena River and the ocean, so my kids were happy. Mild waves if anything, not far from parking. One of... More

Nothing but great things to say! Road is awesome, tunnels great, view magnificent. We will plan another trip that we can take this. It is $16 but if you want to return it is only $5. Even on the over cast day it was beautiful.

The Chesapeake Bay extends far beyond what most tourists explore. Grab a map or better yet, a boat. I've explored as far North as Elkton down to Chesapeake Beach. Just love it.

If you are interested in a low-key but fun experience with the locals of the Chesapeake Bay we would recommend Swan Creek & Rock Hall, Maryland. If you are a boater and need a safe haven from storms or hurricanes, both offer a great spot to hole up. Rock Hall is on the Bay with a rock wall jetty to... More

We went there while in Washington, and found that is was much more pleasant to visit than the city... we got away from all the noise and spent the afternoon on the boardwalk... well worth a trip. The small stores you find there is recommended also, I think it was called Sues sweets... very good.

Small, quaint town with great canal views! Not many shops but enough to keep you busy for a few hours. Two or more waterfront restaurants to just sit, relax, eat and enjoy the view. About an hour from the Philadelphia, PA area. A nice place to visit for lunch or dinner and a few hours of shopping. I went on... More
