Map of the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Property

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay is beautifully situated on the banks of the Choptank River, with over 342 acres to explore during free time. The conference center has been designed to foster connection, where you'll be able to convene, learn, and collaborate with other attendees. Consider bringing family along as they'll find plenty to keep them engaged and entertained througout the week.

Cambridge is located in Dorchester County on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. From the Chesapeake Bay to the Choptank and Nanticoke Rivers to dramatic marshland, water is central to life there. Watermen and women still harvest crab, oysters, clams, and fish from the area waterways. You'll find fresh and local seafood on the menu in nearly every restaurant.

Cambridge and Dorchester County offer a mix of old and new, of wide-open spaces and charming small towns, where old-time country stores are more common than convenience stores. You'll find unspoiled landscapes and nature to admire at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and throughout the area.

At the same time, you'll find award-winning restaurants, a vibrant arts scene, and independent, locally ownded shops in Cambridge.
