"Scenic Bay"

Touted to be one of the largest estuaries in the United States, this bay stretches for miles and miles from its northernmost part to the Atlantic Ocean. First approached by Europeans in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Chesapeake Bay majestically spans the states of Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland. Captain John Smith was one of the first to explore the area. What was once the site of a crucial battle of the American Revolution, stands today as a center point of the fishing industry. Fed by a tracery of meandering rivers, the bay is much favored for its unabashed natural beauty and water activities. A site replete with delightful marine vegetation, the bay is also teeming with motley species of crabs, fishes, oysters and more.
