Chesapeake Bay Lake Getaways
Chesapeake Bay vacation home rentals are sure to provide a memorable trip to the Atlantic. The Chesapeake Bay, the country's largest estuary, is a great place for boating and fishing. Many visitors enjoy charter fishing trips for fun and guidance for a great catch. The area is also an excellent location for those interested in crabbing.
The Chesapeake and Delaware Canal runs 14 miles long, 450 feet wide and 35 feet deep across Maryland and Delaware, connecting the Delaware River with the Chesapeake Bay and the Port of Baltimore. The C&D Canal is owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District. The project office in historic Chesapeake City, Maryland, is also the site of the C&D Canal Museum and Bethel Bridge Lighthouse.
Viewing historical sites, boating, fishing, and viewing the canal works are the major recreations found along the world's third busiest canal.
