Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary on the continent of North America, and its Eastern Shore owes its renown to miles of wetlands, coves and quaint waterfront towns. The triangle formed by Easton, Oxford and St. Michaels is the area’s most popular destination, a charming enclave of pre-Revolutionary and Federalist houses.
