Cambridge, MD (PRWEB) October 4, 2010
Stunning fall foliage and indigenous wildlife beckon visitors to Maryland's Chesapeake Bay region, one of the most well-preserved areas in the nation. And this autumn, the four-diamond Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay, the leading Cambridge hotel, invites travelers to discover the awe-inspiring Eastern Shore with its new "Explore" Chesapeake Bay vacation package. The special deal, available through December 2011, includes a family pass to the nearby Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge resort gift, s'mores kit, and a $40 food and beverage credit.
Fall is the ideal season to explore Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, comprised of 27,000 acres filled with freshwater ponds, forests and numerous animal species. Visitors can observe nature first-hand by driving, walking or cycling. Early morning bird walks, canoeing and kayaking offer a close look at visiting bald eagles and ospreys. Travelers can also try their hand at crabbing, available until the end of December.
After a day of exploring, guests can head back to the Cambridge hotel for authentic Eastern Shore cuisine. The Explore Chesapeake package's $40 food and beverage credit can be used at any of the resort's six delectable dining destinations. Favorites include jumbo lump crab cakes at the chic Water's Edge Grill, and grilled local rockfish at the casual Blue Point Provision Company. Roasting s'mores by the resort's grand two-story fireplace is a sweet finale to the day.
Travelers can take advantage of numerous resort events this autumn. On November 12-14, acclaimed wildlife artist Alan James Robinson will share his work and insights on watercolor techniques, drawings and etchings. Wine appreciation seminars, Family Iron Chef competitions and cookie decorating are regularly held throughout the season.
Complimentary amenities at Hyatt Chesapeake Bay include indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, a fitness center, a private beach, a volleyball court, miniature and frisbee golf, a game room, and Blue Heron Rookery, a private onsite nature preserve. The newly renovated River Marsh Golf Club features an 18-hole championship golf course and golf lessons for all ages. Stillwater Spa provides an array of revitalizing Eastern Shore-inspired spa treatments. Exciting water adventures at River Marsh Marina include boating, fishing, and crabbing excursions, as well as sunset cruises. Downtown Cambridge is just a five-minute drive away and boasts a variety of art galleries, boutiques, and endless opportunities for fall fun.
