Easy day trips can be made to Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and other historic sites. Charter fishing trips and boat/kayak rentals are available. Marinas and public boat ramps are nearby. Many fine golf courses are within a one-hour drive. Busch Gardens and Water Country U.S.A. are about an hour's drive away.
Primarily, though, this rural Chesapeake Bay community is a place to relax and get away from the workday world. Birders, artists, and people who just need a breather will be happy here.
