The show is set in Chesapeake Shores, Maryland, but filming for the show takes place much further away. Like many Hallmark Channel shows and movies, Chesapeake Shores is actually filmed in Vancouver. Specifically, Chesapeake Shores is shot on Vancouver Island, according to the Vancouver Tourism board‘s official website.
Thankfully, when the show isn’t shooting on Vancouver Island, many of the real-life businesses that operate there and are also present in the show are available for fans to visit. For example, the Chesapeake Shores Town Square Cafe is known as Bailey’s in the Village Cafe, but you can still pick up a pastry and a coffee no matter what the store is called.
Even the famous O’Brien Family Trust has a real-life equivalent in Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, in Parksville, Vancouver Island. The tidal pools, sand dollars, seaweed, and sea glass spotted in the show aren’t an exaggeration, and fans can check out the mile and a half of parkland for themselves.
