The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa, and Marina is the perfect weekend getaway from the DC Metro/Northern Virginia area. The resort features:
We loved the clean spacious rooms and stayed in a family suite with a king sized bed and bunk beds for the kids.
For dinner, we enjoyed an incredible meal at Blue Point Provision, just a 5-10 minute walk down a shelled path from the hotel. The atmosphere was fun, and the menu was filled with delicious, local food. We sampled the Choptank Oysters on the half-shell, which were sweet and fresh, loved the cocktail menu, and took advantage of being in Maryland with crab and fresh fish specialities. For breakfast, we at inside the main hotel at the Water's Edge Grill, which has a great breakfast buffet and specialities such as a crab omelet.
Since the weather was still too cool for the outdoor pool and beach, we took advantage of the beautiful and large indoor pool, played some mini-golf, and when the sun went down, we enjoyed roasting some s'mores by the outdoor fire.
While at the Hyatt, here are some great things to do around Cambridge:

I received a complimentary stay, breakfast, and snacks at the hotel for my honest review. I also met with a regional tourism specialist to hear more about the great features the region has to offer for families. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
