The Eastern Shore

Maryland's Eastern Shore is readily accessible from the north via any number of routes out of eastern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware and from the east out of Delaware. The William Preston Lane Jr. Bridge, "the Bay Bridge," crosses the Chesapeake Bay northeast of Annapolis; its dual spans stretch 4.5 mi across.
