Maryland’s Eastern Shore attracts visitors and vacation homebuyers from the Washington area who are looking for a peaceful place where they can enjoy charming small towns, boating, fishing and water views.

At Chesapeake, an active-adult community where residents must be age 55 or older, Del Webb Corp. has developed a community that takes advantage of its Eastern Shore location in Easton. While plenty of amenities have been incorporated into the community, residents may also spend their time exploring the cultural activities and antique shops of Easton and nearby St. Michaels, or spend time on the Chesapeake Bay.

The Easton Club, an 18-hole championship golf course, is minutes away, and a free two-year membership in the club is included for homebuyers.

Within Chesapeake, residents can spend time at the 11,000-square-foot Chesapeake community clubhouse, which includes a grand room for parties, movies, meetings, social hours and ballroom dancing. A wide range of planned events and programs are held at Chesapeake, which offers more than 25 clubs that range from a book club to poker clubs.

There are also clubs for sailing, bowling, scrapbooking and sewing. The clubhouse has a fitness center with a separate aerobics room, a business center, a library, a billiard and dart room, a card and game room and an arts-and-crafts center.

Outdoor amenities at Chesapeake include a swimming pool, tennis courts with a gazebo sitting area, a putting green, a picnic area, ponds, pocket parks and a walking trail.
