(Where to live
) If you make it up to the Chesapeake look at Cape Charles, VA, Onancock, VA, and Urbanna, VA. All three are very quiet - off the beaten path, pretty little towns that you might like. The first two are on Virginia's Eastern Shore i.e. well
off the beaten path, Urbanna is up the Rappahannock R. on the west side of the bay. All are sailing towns.
Visit Williamsburg, VA and the Yorktown Battlefield and walk through the (Chesapeake) Waterman's Museum on the York River by Yorktown. There's plenty more - I'll stop there.
