From the official guide to North Beach:
"Nestled on the Chesapeake Bay's western shore, the Town of North Beach epitomizes "land of pleasant living." Its seven-block waterfront contains a public fishing pier and a half-mile-long boardwalk with accompanying bike path. The boardwalk is dotted with benches for residents and visitors to linger and Bay-watch. Located at the northern tip of Calvert County, North Beach also encompasses a wildlife refuge in its tidal marshlands, home to native wildlife and host to seasonal migrations.

Today's population is composed primarily of year-round residents who know they've found "The Jewel of the Chesapeake Bay". It's a place to take a quiet, friendly walk around Town away from the congestion and hassle of the city, a place where government wears the face of one's neighbor and each resident can keep a finger on its pulse and a place to call your own little bit of heaven on earth.
