    Usually I don't like to give five stars to a basic municipal dock. But this one has Chesapeake City. Besides being free, it's a floating dock that is easy to get in and out of. But be advised that there is really only space for 3 transients. So if it's full you can spin off to the Chesapeake Inn Marina or the Chesapeake Anchorage Marina (failing that you can anchor in the super protected anchorage). The village is a collection of houses from the 1800's. There is about 3 or 4 places to eat. I ended up at the Tap Room, the local dive bar and crab house par excellance, for a great burger. There is also a small antique shop on the main drag filled with treasures and books to read while travelling. Finally, a great coffee shop in the heart of "downtown." (Also a couple of gift shops.) All within walking distance.

    Wonderful setting, downtown in a quaint village setting near a gazebo that features musicians in the evening. Borrow bicycles from the library to ride in the farmland. Slow down, enjoy the country.
