Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland your home away from home

Chesapeake Bay is a 180-mile long estuary running down between the coast of Maryland and Virginia. It has many inlets and more than 150 rivers feeding it before it finally reaches the Atlantic Ocean. The bay area is noted for its scenic natural beauty and its world-famous crabs and oysters.

Things to Do in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland

Chesapeake Bay is famous for its fishing. Rockfish, also known as striped bass, blue crabs, clams and eels can all be caught here and visitors will get the chance to sample the fresh seafood at the many restaurants in the area around their Chesapeake Bay holiday rentals. Enjoy the beach and boardwalk at Ocean City or spend a day driving around the scenic backwaters discovering the diverse wildlife. You can take a scenic hot air balloon flight to see the vast Chesapeake Bay from the air or book a place on a sightseeing boat tour to see more of the area's natural beauty and wildlife at close quarters. Several places offer kayaking trips and canoes for hire to paddle the shallow waterways. Museums and art galleries abound in the area along with state parks.

Places to Visit Around Chesapeake Bay, Maryland

Chestertown is well worth visiting to see its farmers' market and the Washington College campus buildings. Cambridge is one of the oldest towns in Maryland. It has several museums including the fascinating Brannock Maritime Museum and the Richardson Maritime Museum. Nearby are Hooper's Island and Taylor's Island, traditionally the home of local watermen. Taylor's Island has 18th century churches, schools and a historic cannon captured from the British in the war of 1812. Another place of interest to visit is Annapolis, the capital of Maryland which has old world charm in its historic architecture and is home to the U.S. Naval Academy.
