Dream Weekends: Hyatt Regency Chesapeake

A charmer on the Chesapeake.

Cambridge, Maryland

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay is just what Maryland needed. The region's newest full-service resort, it's in an ideal location for exploring the Eastern Shore. The interior features walls of glass overlooking the Choptank River. Its restaurants feature crabs and fresh seafood caught in the bay in season.

At the marina, you can take sailing lessons or rent a kayak or canoe. Fishing excursions and boat tours are available nearby. Take a dip in the infinity pool and feel like you're swimming out to the river. Another pool offers water volleyball. The kids will love the water slide. In chillier weather, there's indoor swimming and a large hot tub.

Play tennis, hike or jog in the Hyatt's wildlife refuge, or play 18 holes at the Golf Club at River Marsh, which features many holes along the water. After, unwind at the spa.

Bottom line: Eastern Shore charm and a boatload of activities on the water.

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay, 410-901-1234; Summer prices start at $189 for two per night.
