Southern Living names Cape Charles as a top beach.
Cape Charles made the list of Southern Living Magazine’s Best Beaches, highlighting its laid back style, and a tipping of the cap to the Bay Haven Inn. Here is what they said:
An Eastern Shore town, Cape Charles fronts a public beach on the Chesapeake Bay with no entrance or parking fees. Quieter than better-known Virginia Beach on the Atlantic, this beauty of a town encapsulates bay pleasures, all backed by a growing array of boutique hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, galleries, cottage rentals, and more. Jen Lewis, a lifelong resident who coordinates the town’s community events, marvels at Cape Charles’ growing popularity but says her husband has a simple explanation for it: “Everywhere else you go is so busy. Here, you can relax—walk everywhere, or rent a golf cart.” Cast a line from the Cape Charles Fishing Pier. Or stroll Bay Avenue, with beach access at every block. Stay at Bay Haven Inn of Cape Charles; it made a list of top 10 Virginia B&Bs with its notable breakfasts—always a good thing. Sweet potato biscuits with some Virginia country ham, anyone?
