Congrats everyone. We made it. After pushing through several metric tons of homemade cookies and discarded gift wrap, the holidays are over and it’s finally a new year. To some of us that means the looming obligation of resolutions, but it also means new beginnings.

Whatever steps you’re taking to better yourself, you can also make 2019 your best year yet by filling it with all kinds of new experiences. Between great food, amazing entertainment and some of the best nature the east coast has to offer, Chesapeake is the perfect place to make it happen. Here at Chesapeake Uncovered, we’ve compiled our best blog posts of 2018 to give you a little heads-up on how to get the most out of the new year.
