Welcome to Cape Charles

A charming, bayside gem nestled on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Located on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, Cape Charles continues its amazing transformation, recapturing its 1880s glory days when the railroad gave birth to this post-Victorian beauty. B&Bs, a boutique hotel, and cottage/resort rentals make staying here a pleasure. Unique shops in the downtown area, a full service European day spa, and nearby guided horseback trail rides on a waterfront estate add to the offerings. Dining includes waterfront restaurants, a Viennese-inspired coffee house, Irish pub, old-fashioned soda fountain, and more. The Cape Charles Museum provides a fascinating look back in time to see how Cape Charles was formed. The Art Deco Historic Palace Theatre spotlights local, regional, and national talent. The Oyster Farm at Kings Creek, with its marina, restaurant and event venue, flanks the northern side of town, while Bay Creek Resort & Club on the southern side is home to two nationally ranked golf courses designed by golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Soak up the sun at the town’s mile-long beach or set sail on the Chesapeake Bay.
