By hidden, I mean you just don't hear of them that much compared to Europe or the Caribbean, but the maritime coast, inland waterways and Chesapeake Bay are great opportunities and sometimes the best and only way to take in certain sites and cities. From the New England coast and a Lobster cruise, to fall foliage and more. One new and very interesting cruise itinerary is the Chesapeake Bay by American Cruise Lines, A USA registered, built, and crewed luxury small chip cruise line. The Chesapeake Bay is not only fascinating for the many historic towns on the eastern shore, easily reached from the Bay side as that is how they developed at the time, from the water. But now historical interesting are the battlefields from the Revolutionary war at Yorktown, Ft. McHenry. Jamestown and Williamsburg, Annapolis and more. Take a look at the itinerary map below and then remember your history, love of crabs, Pocohontas, Tangier Island......
Couple these 6 and 7 night with excursions cruise with a visit to Washington DC, and Alexandria, and you can get a great summer cruise for you, and a recharge on your history. An while there pay some special interest to the US Naval Academy and the fine Midshipmen preparing to enter and lead our Navy and Marines.
You can learn more about the itinerary, the ships, the cruise line, and the cities you will see at this Chesapeake Bay Cruise sheet.
