Welcome to Chesapeake Bay!

This WorldWeb.com travel and tourism guide for Chesapeake Bay, featuring hotels and other accommodations, tours, attractions, events, shopping and more, will help you plan a successful visit to the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia, U.S.A.

The Chesapeake Bay dominates the eastern coast of Virginia. In addition to a host of recreational activities, Virginia's colonial heritage has formed the basis for the thriving tourism industry found in this area. Colonial Williamsburg, the seat of power of England's largest and most prosperous colony, was capital of Virginia from 1699 to 1780. Today, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown are collectively known as the Historic Triangle, and make up one of the most popular tourist destinations in the area. The Chesapeake Bay region also is home to Norfolk and Newport News, a city of 171,000, situated on the front of the James River. Virginia Beach was developed as a holiday retreat, and sees a younger group of tourists flocking to the lively six-mile beach.
