About Maryland’s Eastern Shore

The Eastern Shore of Maryland consists of all of the counties East of the Chesapeake Bay including Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, and Worcester. The Eastern Shore offers great boating, biking, and birding among many other attractions.

Ocean City is the most popular tourist destination in Maryland attracting millions of visitors annually, and its three-mile-long boardwalk is home to some of the finest restaurants and hotels in the region. It is also the jumping off point for great day trips including Wallops Island Flight Facility, historic Berlin, and more.
