we chartered a small boat with Capt. Bill of Chesapeake Custom Charters to get a feel for the Elk Neck area via water. You learn alot of things seeing the area by boat that you might not get from the land. For example, we found the Elk River to be a lot more calm than the North East river. In addition, there is alot more houses to see on the shoreline and I always find the houses more interesting than just trees. Unfortunately, we did not go up the canal yet, but as soon as we do I am headed to the Tap Room for some good eating :-)

Welcome st5143 and castleAdam. We relocated to North East about three yearsa go from NJ. Check ou our town - on the water, some really great eateries and galleries, and still rural with rolling hills along with prximity to the Elk Neck State Forest and Turkey Point light house. It's minutes to Rt95.

I lived in Chesapeake City for a year. I absolutely love the place. It is more of a place for the 40+ crowd. Very laid back, not much of a night life. I lived in a new development, but was still far off the road. The downtown area is great to visit for meals, milling around, etc.... I highly recommend the Bayard Inn. I shopped at the grocery store in DE, I can't recall the name, maybe Geoguardies/Gianellies...something like that. It was in 2003. The great thing....no sales tax in DE. I also lived in Elkton for a short period while we were looking for a house. I don't have a very high opinion of Elkton. Some areas are very nice and traditional. Other areas, like around the court house don't seem too nice. I don't have any facts. I didn't get to know it too well, so I am not the best judge. Good luck on whatever you decide.
