The area has all the charm of Chesapeake Bay lifestyle with maritime recreation - boating, kayaking, SUP, jet ski, sailing and power alike.  With the many marinas, beaches, and wildlife it is a vacation every day in South Anne Arundel County and a nature lover's paradise.  Certain waterfront communities are best known for beautiful and expansive sunsets and the weekly West River sailing races. 

The homes here in Galesville, Shady Side, West River, Churchton, Deale for the most part were originally Chesapeake Bay cottages that over time are being transformed into quaint arts and craft bungalow's and cottages and contemporary waterfront homes with expansive views of the water, sunrise and sunsets.   Each of the micro communities within have their own beach, fishing piers, and a few with their own community center on the beach and marina for residents.  The streets are quaint welcoming adults and children alike to walk and ride bikes in a neighborly environment.   There is a major effort taking place right now to construct through the forested areas of Shady Side walking paths that expand your experience of the natural beauty and wonder of the Chesapeake Bay by connecting each neighborhood along the water's edge. 

The area is also known for wonderful river side resturants like Pirates Cove, Thursdays in Galesville; the Driftwood Diner and Brickhouse in Shady Side; most popular in Deale is Skippers and Happy Harbor. There is a full-service Grocery store in the heart of Shady Side - Churchton and many service stations and supply stores for convenience.   Shady Side is home to one of the best Yacht Clubs in Maryland with a pool, superb marina with services, and an amazing dining experience overlooking the West River and Chesapeake Bay.  Herrington Harbor North is in Nearby Tracy's Landing and Herrington Harbor South in Friendship, Maryland complete with waterside restaurants, lodging, pools, beach fronts and high service marinas for yachts and moderate boat sizes.
