Chesapeake Bay was called the “Great Shellfish Bay” by the Algonquins, but now you’ll find more than just a place to fish.

At 200 miles long and 30 miles at it’s widest point, The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States. But the average depth is only 30 feet, which make the Bay wonderfully full of aquatic life.

Another great reason to visit Chesapeake Bay? Some of the world’s best lighthouses.
