Folks,

We'll be taking weekend trips this summer to the southern part of the Eastern Shore (Cape Charles area). What is the quickest way to go? Is it faster to go down 95 and take the bay bridge tunnel from va beach or cross over to the eastern shore from the tunnel near Anapolis and go south from there? We'll be leaving from Ashburn and most likely heading down on Sat nights or Sun mornings. Thanks for the help!

I-95/I-64 to the Bay Bridge Tunnel is the shorter route by probably (guess)....40 miles or so.

IMO, the Rt 50 East over the Bay and down Rt 13 is more scenic. Incidentally, the Bay crossing near Annapolis is a bridge not a tunnel. It's a 4.4 mile long suspension bridge that gets very high as it passes over the shipping channel. Some people freak out on the bridge and stop....and the bridge cops have to come out and drive their car to the other side. I use that bridge a lot going to my weekend house and it happens regularly....
