Eastern Shore 

Ocean City 
Surf, seafood and history with plenty of hospitality

Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne's, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico and Worcester counties
 

"Maryland is for crabs." It’s a popular expression that is especially true – and not true – on the Eastern Shore. Blue crabs from the Chesapeake – harvested on the Eastern Shore – are often at the center of traditional get-togethers in Maryland.

If you're talking about the people who live on the Eastern Shore, though, the expression is far from the truth. Eastern Shore folks will show you why Maryland has its roots in Southern hospitality.

 Spend a day on the bay. Discover this region’s history and allure while sailing. Or, drive from one waterfront village to the next in search of the perfect crab cake.

Want more activity? Head for Ocean City. Along this 10-mile stretch of white sandy beaches, you'll find a boardwalk, amusement parks, an abundance of hotels and eateries, and more than two dozen golf courses nearby.
