On the Water’s Edge

By Linda Tancs

Havre de Grace, Maryland bills itself as unique on the Chesapeake.  Just five minutes off I-95 between Baltimore, Maryland and Wilmington, Delaware, the little city by the bay offers a plethora of things to do.  Why not take a stroll along the boardwalk, where the Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay.  Or check out the Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy system, a system of buoys placed along portions of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  The region is rich in maritime heritage.  Visit the lock house museum for the story of the Susquehanna and Tidewater Canal or take in a lecture at the maritime museum.  You can even visit a museum dedicated to decoy carving, or take an educational excursion aboard the Skipjack Martha Lewis, one of the last remaining working dredge boats comprising the Chesapeake Bay oyster fleet.
