Chesapeake Shores takes place in a Maryland town that is completely fictional. But where is the show actually filmed? In this regard, the production has a curious relationship with the Virgin River.

To a good portion of fans, Chesapeake Shores and Virgin River are slightly similar series and, according to Looper, it’s not a coincidence. Both chains share some similar locations in Canada.

More specifically, the Chesapeake Shores is built on Vancouver Island, taking advantage of areas such as Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Nanaimo, and Nanais Bay. Interestingly, the scenes were shot in some of the same locations in Virgin River, which are small towns in Canada.

Another interesting detail: In addition to the Chesapeake Shores and Virgin River, many series whose stories take place in the United States are produced in Canada, and for a good reason. Production costs are low and some states have generous tax incentives.

So the next time you see the Chesapeake Coasts and the Virgin River alike, it’s no coincidence. This is the real reason.

Chesapeake Shores is now available on Netflix. In Brazil, Virgin River is also part of the streaming service catalog.
