If you’re looking to find memories that will last a lifetime, this is where you belong. Historic waterfront villages with grand homes and red bricked, tree lined sidewalks retain the charm of years gone by. Generations of watermen have harvested the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries to bring the rest of the world such delicacies as blue crabs, oysters, clams, rockfish, and more. Try casting your line in sparkling waters teaming with fish, or line up your putt on nationally acclaimed golf courses where the term water hole takes on a new meaning. If you’re looking for a quiet retreat, lush forests and wildlife preserves offer sanctuary for all. Specialty shops, art galleries, historic bed and breakfasts, auctions, festivals, fairs and so much more. Just remember to bring your smile - you’re going to need it here amidst a world of small town hospitality.
