Chesapeake Bay is the world's biggest estuary with lots of seafood and fish. It's most famous for its Blue Crab which becomes available with the start of the commercial crab season in Maryland in April to December. Look for it in various restaurants in the Northeast. Washington is famous for its crab cakes. But if you want the true experience you should go for a whole steamed crab!
