Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel is only 20 minutes from Chesapeake, and it is the main roadway from Delaware, Maryland, and the Eastern Shore into Coastal Virginia. Whether you are driving north or south, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel showcases the mighty surge of the Atlantic Ocean, the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, and the soaring grace of an engineering marvel.  Both a tourist attraction and a travel convenience, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel connects Virginia's Eastern Shore with the Virginia mainland. Drive its 17.6-mile span north or south from Virginia’s Eastern Shore, or use it as an alternate route between Coastal Virginia and the Outer Banks and Carolinas. Be sure to stop on the scenic overlook on the west side of the bridge to capture a sunrise or sunset, stretch your legs, or enjoy the fresh air. Viewing machines are available for an even better look at the Chesapeake Bay.
