Chesapeake Bay Area Attractions

All around the Chesapeake Bay are historic attractions like George Washington’s birthplace, Robert E. Lee’s plantation, and the Pamunkey and Mattaponi lands. Explore the beach at Westmoreland State Park or the Potomac River trails and charter boats near the Caledon Natural Area. Travel the Virginia Wine Trail and sample local specialties from everywhere in the Chesapeake Bay area surrounding the Tides Inn.

From well-known cities like Annapolis, Baltimore and Norfolk to charming towns like Deale, Easton and Irvington, the historic Chesapeake Bay area is surrounded by sightseeing, attractions and recreational options. Fishing and boating are always popular, and so is exploring the numerous shops and art galleries.

Chesapeake Bay peninsulas provide verdant land and a year-round temperate climate for vineyards and wineries that offer warm hospitality and tastings. Or for sailing around the Chesapeake Bay, take a day trip to Tangier Island or Smith Island to experience an island getaway and travel back in time.
