Gwynn’s Island, Virginia: Maritime Community on Chesapeake Bay
Just off the coast of mainland Virginia, Gwynn’s Island is surrounded on all sides by the glittering waters of Chesapeake Bay. It’s no surprise, then, that the bay plays an integral role in daily life on the island, whether you’re munching on crab cakes at the award-winning Seabreeze Restaurant or reeling in your own speckled trout and flounder on a charter boat. You can also make a splash on water skis and jet skis that launch from Morningstar Marinas.
Gwynn’s Island Museum honors the island’s longstanding relationship with Chesapeake Bay. The century-old building holds a collection of arrowheads, fossils, and other items that have turned up on the island’s beaches.
