CHESAPEAKE CITY

Though Chesapeake City is historic, the inns, restaurants and shops offer all of the modern comforts and pleasures a visitor could ask for.  Three well-known waterfront restaurants are consistent winners in Delaware and Maryland newspaper readers’ polls; shops are all located in historic buildings, adding to that special ambiance of small-town American charm.

Chesapeake City features homes and gardens from the 1800's, many on the National Historic Register. Visit the C&D Canal Museum, which provides a detailed history of the canal that built Chesapeake City.  The museum has interactive displays and items of interest for all age groups. Bike or walk the Ben Cardin Recreational Trail, which courses along the banks of the Canal eastward, where it crosses into Delaware and extends 15.5 more miles all the way to the Delaware River. Kayak in scenic Back Creek, which is a slow, meandering paddle through scenic countryside. Bald eagles, ospreys, heron and even otters are regular inhabitants of the area's wetlands.
