Crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge from the bustling metropolitan regions surrounding Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, D.C., the water stretches out before your eyes in all directions. The sailboats of weekend warriors and trollers of family-business fisherman dash across the water below.
It’s fortunate that the bridge is over 4 miles long, the journey gives you a moment to adjust. It’s a far cry from the hectic urban centers to the west. Here, life moves at a more relaxed pace, making it an increasingly popular destination for young families and active adults alike to escape the hustle and bustle and live with a genuine connection to the place they call home.
A Small Town with Larger-Than-Life Charm
20 miles southeast of the Bay Bridge lies the county seat of Talbot County. Here, the town of Easton combines all the best parts of the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle into one convenient package. A quaint, historic downtown offers boutique shopping, a classic theatre and the prestigious Tidewater Inn. Across town, modern development offers access to all the suburban conveniences of big box retail, grocery and restaurants. Golf courses intermix with old farms and working agricultural fields. Water access is abundant on the Tred Avon and Miles rivers.
Outside of the town’s charm and scenery, it’s the convenient location which draws so many transplants from the mainland. It’s close enough to the bridge so that residents can travel back west to Annapolis, D.C. and Baltimore within an hour or two, but it also allows residents to explore the wealth of the Eastern Shore — from Delaware’s famous beaches on the Atlantic coast (60 miles away) to the city of Salisbury to the southeast (45 miles away). That’s without mentioning the destinations that are even closer such as St. Michaels, Tilghman Island, Oxford and Cambridge.
