Chesapeake City is a small town in Cecil County, Maryland with plenty of Chesapeake flavor! History buffs love Chesapeake City, as it has a 165-year-old working canal that connects the Chesapeake Bay to the Delaware Bay. Guided tours of the historic district in town are also available, and there are even some all-outdoor tours where well-mannered pups are able to come along!
This area is home to places like Back Creek, which runs through the middle of the town. Your dog will feel right at home sniffing and splashing away by the creek and others nearby. Right outside of town is the Canal Wildlife Management Area, where you will find plenty of hiking and fishing areas where your dog is welcome to join you on-leash. You can bring some other two-legged friends, too, and have a picnic in the open grassy area.
While you are exploring Chesapeake City's history, it is worth sniffing out the restored tobacco plantation that dates back to 1651. Guided tours and self-guided tours of the nature trails are open on certain days of the week all year round as long as the weather is favorable. There is one animal hospital right in Chesapeake City where you will find stellar care to keep your dog happy and healthy at every life stage.
Fifteen minutes from Chesapeake City, right across the state line in the state of Delaware is the community of Glasgow. This community is home to Glasgow Regional Park, where you will find activities for the whole family, from walking to skating and biking. Dogs are a familiar sight in this park; just be sure to use a short, non-retractable leash to keep your pup close when the park is busy. Just a short drive away from the center of Glasgow is Lums Pond State Park. This park is a huge area with walking and hiking paths, as well as a large pond that is stocked with fish!
