Get Away: Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay
Our family needed a quick, kid-friendly, end-of-summer escape in the time of Covid. Here's how it went.
The morning was overcast and the air was humid as we kicked off our third and last day with a round of tennis. Rackets and balls are available from the lifeguard stand—as are Frisbees for disc golf or, well…Frisbee. The four tennis courts are accessible via a scenic walk along the river, or through the less-scenic self-parking lot.
We walked along the river’s edge on the way back, which reminded my kids of how much fun they’d had pedal boarding the day before. Soon we were signing another half-hour rental agreement. This time, the jellyfish were out in full force, and the kids gave them friendly hellos from the safety of their boards.
We ordered one last lunch through the app before heading home, our hankering for sand, sun and safety satisfied.
