The Chesapeake Bay: a spring break hot-spot

Staying in Maryland this spring break?

You’re in luck: there’s a lot of incredible history here. Did you know that you could follow in the footsteps of John Smith? Or that an island on the Bay started as a depository for sludge from the Baltimore Harbor and became a sanctuary for migratory birds? You can find sports history, shipbuilding, organic farms, and more–all within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

From the earliest days in history, the Chesapeake Bay has been recognized as a treasure. Go experience the Bay for yourself!

Be sure to send Testudo a postcard while you explore.

The first map to show and name the Chesapeake Bay, dated 1590 and named America pars, Virginia dicta.
