Chesapeake City

Chesapeake City is a jewel along the Chesapeake waterway. Enveloped by the graceful curve of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal Bridge, this town has charm and beauty in spades.

The little shops along the main streets of the town tempt visitors and shoppers with an assortment of wares including antiques, candles, artwork, and jewelry.  

Multiple lodging options and restaurants, not to mention the marina, make this historic locale a weekend destination option.  

Dug by hand, the 14-mile canal opened in 1829, and is a distance-saving route for ocean-going vessels. Named in 1839, Chesapeake City was a key commercial city along the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal.
