An Eastern Shore Weekend
Savoring St. Michaels, Easton, Oxford and Tilghman Island.
The Delmarva Peninsula is sort of like the ancient Roman god Janus, who famously faced two ways. But, unlike Janus, who looked to the future and the past, Delmarva has two views of past and present. Delmarva’s eastern side faces the rising sun and the roaring Atlantic Ocean and is fronted by miles of glistening beaches.

The western side, a region historically rich in seafood farmed by fishermen in small boats, turns toward the more placid Chesapeake Bay. It boasts a zigzagging shoreline laced with inlets, bays, marshes and pretend rivers whose flow is dictated only by tidal currents.
This upper bay, from Cambridge north, is also rich in history stretching back to the
Colonial era. It’s also alive with activities for those who love changing scenery, maritime activities, glimpses into history, outdoor sports, fine and casual dining. and small specialty shops. It’s the perfect place for
a getaway weekend—a comfortable drive of about two hours from West Chester or Wilmington.
