Each of these Chesapeake Bay towns has all the elements that provide a not-to-forget Chesapeake Bay visit. A waterfront area to enjoy the cool breezes and lovely views. A Chesapeake heritage museum to learn about the local traditions. At least one seafood restaurant so you can get your fill of Chesapeake seafood. Local architectural styles based on the needs of the community (vernacular architecture). Shopping so you to acquire your treasure to take home. And a lighthouse and/or a skipjack you can tour.
