GREAT TRIP IDEAS

ONE REGION, MANY DESTINATIONS, UNLIMITED EXPERIENCES Consistently ranked among the country’s top 100 best places to live by Money magazine, Chesapeake, Va., is a unique blend of urban and rural settings with a delightful array of shopping, dining venues and cultural activities mixed seamlessly with historic sites, secluded waterways and scenic natural wonders. Nestled in the heart of Coastal Virginia, Chesapeake’s convenient, mid-Atlantic location is within 750 miles of two-thirds of the U.S. population and just minutes from neighboring destinations including Norfolk’s downtown scene, the Virginia Beach oceanfront and historic Colonial Williamsburg.

Regardless of the season, there’s always fun to be had on Chesapeake’s waterways. In the spring, participate in Paddle for the Border. Every spring, hundreds of kayakers and canoers venture to Chesapeake’s Great Dismal Swamp Canal for the 7.5-mile excursion to the Virginia/North Carolina border. Register early to join in the excitement of the three-hour journey and keep your eyes peeled on the natural habitat as you paddle, for you may catch a glimpse

of the deer, river otters, black bears and migratory birds that live around the canal. Start your summer off right with the Chesapeake Jubilee every May. Named a top 20 event by the Southeast Tourism Society, the Chesapeake Jubilee brings friends and family together for four days of entertaining games, exhilarating carnival rides and delicious food. Attendees sample delectable varieties of BBQ at the BBQ competition, enjoy the fireworks show and attend concerts from local, regional and national acts each year. With Chesapeake as a hub of Coastal Virginia, it’s easy to take a day trip outside the city and explore the more historic landmarks located throughout the region. Travel back to a simpler time with a visit

EXPLORE THE GREAT OUTDOORS REVITALIZE, REPLENISH, RELAX With all the hustle and bustle of life, you owe it to yourself to rediscover your sense of adventure and experience the great outdoors in Chesapeake.

Waterways The beautiful winding waterways of the Great Dismal Swamp Canal span 22 miles and serve as the ideal location for both first-time and experienced paddlers ready to glide over the water. The canal offers miles of nature ready for exploration and a rich history citing back to 1763 when George Washington helped recognize the importance of building a canal to connect the Albemarle Sound and the Chesapeake Bay. Kayaking and paddling 10

to Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Yorktown or the Jamestown Settlement. Find your inner adventurer on a wild ride at Busch Gardens or Ocean Breeze Waterpark and test your sports knowledge at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. Fulfill the need to have sand between your toes and enjoy a dip in the Atlantic Ocean or take a bike ride down the Virginia Beach Oceanfront boardwalk. With so many exciting places to visit, museums to see, trails to hike and festivals to attend, find your U.O.U. in Chesapeake and stay as long as you like! Visit www.visitchesapeake.com for more ideas and recommendations about what to do and see in Chesapeake.

events take place throughout the year in Chesapeake waterways, including the popular Paddle for the Border and KayaXpedition.

Fishing With 22 miles of fresh and salt waterways, Chesapeake is quickly becoming a worldclass fishing destination with enough fishing hotspots to satisfy any fisherman. In cooler temperatures, the southern branch of the Elizabeth River (known to locals as the “Hot Ditch”) is the premier location on the East Coast to land a citation-sized trout, puppy drum or the occasional striped bass. In the warmer months, visit Lake Drummond, one of only two natural lakes in Virginia, and reel in crappie, bullhead catfish, yellow perch, chain pickerel and flier.

natural area of the park and overlooks the southern branch of the Elizabeth River. Weaved within the 763 acres of Northwest River Park are miles of hiking trails along with recreational areas, perfect for playing a game of putt-putt or horseshoes post-hike.
