Visiting Chesapeake Beach MD
Chesapeake Beach, in Calvert County Maryland, was founded by the Washington and Chesapeake Bay Railway Company in 1894 as a resort destination for visitors from the Washington D.C. area. It's still a popular spot today, with a resort hotel, a fleet of charter fishing boats, a water park, beautiful views, beach access, and several large marinas nearby.
Chesapeake Beach thrived as a destination resort during the early 1900's. The train station where early visitors arrived in Chesapeake Beach remains as a museum which recounts the history of the resort town.
Things to do in Chesapeake Beach include taking a charter fishing trip, going to the beach, visiting the Chesapeake Beach Railway Museum, cooling off at the Chesapeake Beach waterpark, or taking a trolley ride to the neighboring towns of North Beach or Deale.
