There’s a whole lot of shoreline along the Southern Shore of Maryland, which means islands, waterfront parks, lighthouses, and lots and lots of seafood. Steamed crabs and oysters are particular must-tries, and taste the best when fresh-caught and served up right on the shore. This area is proud of its long and distinguished heritage and has dozens of sites listed in the National Register of Historic places as well as published lists of the local Revolutionary patriots. If you’re up for another kind of exploration, visit the long-established Amish and Mennonite craft and furniture workshops, or one of a number of state parks along the water that provide a great hike along with some beautiful ocean views. At any stop along the way find the typical, beautifully refurbished B&Bs and inns that dot the southern Maryland coast, as well as plenty of small fishing outfits, waterfront eateries, and lighthouses to explore.
