Attractions: The Chesapeake Bay Bridge

Known officially as the William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bridge, in honor of the Maryland governor who was in office when the project was approved, the 4.3-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge connects the state's Eastern and Western shores. The world's longest steel bridge at the time of its opening in 1952, the bridge remains a vital transportation link, carrying Marylanders to the state's number-one vacation destination, Ocean City. Some 61,000 vehicles cross it every day. <i>--Chris Kaltenbach</i><br><br>
