The Eastern Shore of Maryland lies predominantly on the east side of the Chesapeake Bay and consists of nine counties. Just under 8 percent of Marylanders live in the region. It’s a place known for farmland and waterfront homes, steamed crabs and sweet corn. On weekends during the warmer months, the populations grows exponentially as people from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Annapolis and more make their way to the shore to spend a weekend in peace.
But a weekend on the Eastern Shore is hardly ever enough. Many decide after spending time in one of our waterside villages or small arts towns that they’d like to retire here or buy a second home. Vacationers see it’s a great place to raise a family and start looking for their first place.
The residents of Maryland’s Eastern Shore consider themselves lucky to be surrounded by such natural beauty: coves and creeks, fields and forests. It’s a haven away from city life and suburbs.
