Chesapeake City - a small town BIG on charm!

Chesapeake City, MDIf you haven't spent some time in Chesapeake City, MD lately - you're missing out! The town is actually split by the C&D canal, but most of the tourist attractions are on the south side.

A ferry was once required to cross the canal, but now the suspension bridge on Route 213 allows easy access. The bridge itself is a tourist attraction, as it's high enough to allow large ships to pass underneath. 

The town boast several well-known restaurants & bars including The Tap Room, The Bayard House and The Chesapeake Inn. Schaefer's Canal House (on the north side) will be reopening under new ownership shortly. Several restaurants offer water-side dining in warmer months - and it's always a treat when the large ships pass by!

The Dragonfly Gift ShopChesapeake City is now the home of many specialy shops and gift boutiques, including Vulcan's Rest Fibers (amazing store for knitters, weavers, etc.) and The Dragonfly Giftshop, known for stained glass, glass balls, and many other unique gift ideas. 

The town has several Bed & Breakfast locations, all in historic homes. There's even Serenity Salon Spa and Tanning (on route 213) to treat yourself to a hot rock massage, facial and more! 

Once you're through with shopping, dining and spa time, take a hike or bike ride along the C&D canal. Bring your dog along - almost everyplace is pooch friendly. 

Spring is here - and a visit to Chesapeake City, MD is a fun, relaxing way to welcome the season! Enjoy!
