A day on the Chesapeake Bay means learning, laughter, and lots of fun for you and your family.
Families flock to the Chesapeake for adventure and exploration. From outdoor activities like swimming, picnicking, and geocaching to great indoor destinations like museums and aquariums, there’s a place you can visit today that your whole family will love.
The only challenge is choosing what to do first!
Spend a sunny day frolicking at the beach in Maryland or Virginia.
Prefer the mountains? Head north to Pennsylvania or west toward Appalachia, where you can hike, camp, and swim among the tall trees of the forest.
Have you ever tried geocaching? This treasure hunt-style game is perfect for families, and you can find it nearly anywhere. Fossil hunting is another adventure your family will love. Pack a picnic lunch, and you can spend the whole day exploring.
