Celebrating Why We Live Here

Chesapeake Bay Media is a diverse media platform engaging hundreds of thousands of people each month across digital, print and social channels. We present the very best of the Chesapeake lifestyle as we showcase the culture, news, events, boats, and people of the region.

Our readers live throughout the mid-Atlantic including southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New York and New Jersey, down along the I-95 corridor into Maryland through Baltimore and Washington—all the way to Richmond and east through Virginia Beach.

With regular features from Chesapeake Bay Magazine like Talk of the Bay, Wild Chesapeake, Chesapeake Cruising, and Chesapeake Chef, our readers enjoy the experience of living on the largest estuary in the U.S. (3rd largest in the world).

From our Made on the Bay section to our CBM Recommended features, to the always-popular Best of the Bay, Chesapeake Bay Media curates a true celebration of why we live here.
