It seems like it was just yesterday when we were excited about the upcoming summer season. Unbelievably, we’re now in the last throes of beach season! Where does the time go?

That means people everywhere are scrambling to take one last vacation. And why not? It’s the perfect summer send off.

And since we all have our favorite ways to celebrate summer’s last hurrah, we thought we’d share our 5 favorite beach send offs and we’d love for you to share yours, too!

Summer Send Off Activities

Beach Lover

For those who live to see lapping waves, bright blue skies, sea, and birdlife, there’s no better place to be than on the beach for your send off.

Tell the Chesapeake Bay how much you love her by sticking your toes in the sand one last time. Lift your face to a sunny sky and shout, “Thanks for the memories. See you next year!”

Then head off to Brown Dog Ice Cream and drown your sorrows in your favorite flavor.


Enjoy a Summer Concert

Summer and music go together like a juicy hamburger and mustard, ketchup, and relish! Whether it’s one of the free concerts at Central Park here in Cape Charles or a stroll on the beach with your guitar, bring your twinkle toes and dance. Offer up thanks for another fun-filled summer (and practice social distancing!)

Your Favorite Water Sports

Enjoy the water one last time with favorites like Southeast Expeditions paddleboard, kayak tours with their new Laughing King Sunset Paddle. And adults-only sunset celebration! Or, take a boat ride with Eastern Shore Boat Tours.

No matter what you choose, life is always better on the water!

Summer Reading

Summer reading is fun reading. That’s why it’s not hard to go through multiple books in a season. This year, finish up your reading pleasure lounging on our porch. You can even watch the purple martins chatter in their nearby houses. They’re always delightful!

Fresh Seafood Dinner

Ambrogia Caffe & Enoteca Restaurant

No summer send-off is complete without tasting the freshest seafood possible. The Chesapeake Bay is the epicenter for oysters, but we also serve up some mighty fine shrimp, scallops, crab cakes, and more. 

Ambrogia Caffe & Enoteca is a prime example of fresh seafood. It’s a must-try! And one of your favorites, Hook U Up, now Hook at Harvey. Get more stellar cuisine recommendations with a list we’ve created here.

Then mosey on back to the Inn and enjoy time on the porch with a night sky decorated with stars. In the morning, we’ll fix you one of our scrumptious gourmet breakfasts.with a cup of our Eastern Shore Coastal Roasting Company’s Bay Haven signature coffee.

Okay, that’s how we do the end of summer. How do you say thanks for easy livin’? We’d love to hear it!

Any time you need a break from your routine, book a stay with us and we’ll show you some of the best ways to let your hair down, beach style–no matter the season!
