I ask myself that every year we pass thru on our way to nc. As a matter of fact, I really love Virginias Easter shore there. Quiet, rural, bay and ocean access minutes from one another. But then I say, what would my children do here? Lol, and were homeschoolers! Awesome place to visit but unless you have the $$ to pay the bridge , you won't find the amenities of everyday life found where you are from.
Oh yes, I think about that area every year. The kayaking, the fishing, the wind and waves, the clamming, the crabbing, having my own small orchard, growing veggies, raising chickens. Small town life. But.. ....

arrgg I just lost a long winded paragraph. Long story short. I think delaware is a better fit for year round living, and still close enough for adventures down the Delmarva peninsula. If you like small tiny towns, pop off rt 13 sometime and visit wachapreague. Isn't much there, more like a step back in time.
I'm always amazed at how little info is found on here about the eastern shore. It seems to me and I could be very wrong that there is very little middle class there. Meaning there are those with a lot of $$ and those struggling to make it happen. Another cool place to check out is the bird/ butterfly sanctuary just before the bridge. Great park rangers there, and you can hike over to a WWII bunker area with a battery that protected the entrance to the Chesapeake bay. They have a can on there that was able to fire 2000 pound projectiles up to 20 something miles. Great place. I don't know how to post pics here or I would.
