There’s a reason why they call the Chesapeake Bay “the Land of Pleasant Living.” Location. Location. Location. With enough shoreline to stretch from Washington, D.C., to Alaska, the Bay offers miles of waterfront, much of it within easy access of major metropolitan areas. Small traditional communities line the Eastern Shore and Virginia’s Northern Neck, and carefully planned developments offer golf courses and creative dining along with stunning new homes. Ask a local real estate agent to help you find your dream house—whether it’s an out-of-the-way fixer-upper or a spectacular new condo. You’ll find that people who are passionate about the Bay and its resources are welcomed with open arms.
