These include the Chesapeake Bay, Delaware River, Delaware Bay, Atlantic Ocean, and the Elk River. With so much surrounding water, the maritime culture here is unmatched. However, the most unique aspect of this peninsula is that it’s a conglomerate of small towns of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
