Did you know June is National Great Outdoors Month? I’m celebrating by hopping in a car with some friends and taking a road trip through the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States, and other parts of the Eastern Shore and surrounding area. We’ll start with a trip to the beach and then some camping on Assateague Island National Seashore, famous for its wild horses. So long as the weather (and my cellphone) keeps up, we plan to crisscross the border between Maryland and Virginia to explore some small towns, paddle through the bay on kayaks and eat plenty of crabs and oysters. Then, we’ll round the trip out by hitting up Baltimore and Washington, D.C. I’ll be chronicling it all through the @GadlingTravel Instagram feed, so if you’re not already following along it’s a great time to start.
