Chesapeake city was developed in the mid 1800’s. The architecture although quiet similar to Annapolis is clearly different. Most houses are wrapped in clap board. It is located directly on the C&D Canal which to this day is the considered one of the busiest canals in the world. It is a great passage for ships traveling south bound out of Western NJ-Philly area. They can come through the canal, access the Chesapeake Bay without entering the open water. Safe passage for even larger ships is just as important. It is also a great way to move goods to points further south. As stated it is a very sleepy little town which makes the destination desireable. However, to be here for multiple days can be a struggle for the folks that are looking for a lot to do.
