The peninsula which lies between the Cheapeake Bay to the west and the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean to the east, consists of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and the bulk of Delaware. Depending to whom you are talking to, the northern most boundry varies from just north of the Chesapeake & Delaware canal to the northern state line of Delaware. Known to the people that live here as the "Land Of Pleasant Living".
Life on the peninsula is laid back. Just enough off of the beaten path to retain its quiet charm, yet easily accessible to major East Coast arteries, mainly by three bridges, the Delaware Memorial Bridge, the Bay Bridge, and the Chesapeake Bay-BridgeTunnel. A tourist magnet itself, the bridge-tunnel is a construction feat which draws the engineering student and the merely curious.
The entire tri-state area is flat. located on the Atlantic coastal plain which slopes gently to sea level. Criscrossed by good highways and picturesque back roads and surrounded by water, it is an ideal vacation land itself.
