Think back to the days of childhood when every precious moment of sunlight meant that you had to be outside playing, exploring or simply basking. Rekindle your passion for all things outdoors along the spectacular Chesapeake Bay.
Otherwise known as Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula or River Country, this region stretches from Colonial Beach to Gloucester, and the areas in between are brimming with history, recreation and plenty of opportunities for families to take advantage of lifelong memories.
Take part in the plethora of recreation activities available, both on water and land. Rent a boat or bring your own to discover the pristine scenery past the shoreline. Hop on a fishing charter and find out who can bring home the day’s most impressive catch. Pack a picnic lunch, and set off on one of the area’s many hiking trails to peruse the area by foot. You may catch views of peaceful wildlife and rare birds, including American bald eagles, which can be found around the Caledon Natural Area. Of course many families are content staying on the beach all day, soaking up the sun and seeing who can build the largest sand castle. You’re sure to feel just like a kid again each time you visit the naturally splendid Chesapeake Bay.
