Come for a visit to Betterton in Autumn/Winter: In the Fall and Winter Kent County comes to life in a new way! While in the summer Betterton beach is full of swimmers, in the autumn the beach becomes a magnificent back-drop to sail boats dotting the Bay. Autumn breezes bring antique shoppers to Galena and Chestertown – both a 20 minute drive away; students return to historical Washington College in Chestertown where you’ll find history dating back to the 17th century– take a stroll through the cobble stone streets where you’ll find galleries, studios, and shops featuring the work of local, regional and internationally known artists and craftspeople. Choose a little restaurant for your special meal. The relatively flat land in Kent County attracts cyclists in abundance; the autumn brings the migration of geese seen across the sky. Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring, Betterton and Kent County, Maryland offers you a get-away for ensuring a relaxing, interesting, and a memorable time for you and your family

Come to visit any time of year and enjoy local e: The summer season has ended, but Kent County comes to life in a new way! While in the summer Betterton beach is full of swimmers, in the autumn the beach becomes a magnificent back-drop to sail boats dotting the Bay. Autumn breezes bring antique shoppers to Galena and Chestertown – both a 20 minute drive away; students return to historical Washington College in Chestertown where you’ll find history dating back to the 17th century – take a stroll through the cobble stone streets where you’ll find galleries, studios, and shops featuring the work of local, regional and internationally known artists and craftspeople. Choose a little restaurant for your special meal. Because of the relatively flat land in Kent County, cyclists are seen in abundance; and don’t forget in the autumn we see the migration of geese sweep across the sky. Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring, Betterton and Kent County, Maryland offers you a get-away for ensuring a relaxing, interesting, and a memorable time for your

Venturing out of town, you can take a short drive to the bay front town of Rock Hall where you will find marinas and waterman’s workboats. Or Galena, a town known for its antique shops; or perhaps to Chestertown, on the banks of the Chester River where a blend of history, arts, shopping, and/or a Saturday morning trip to the Farmers Market along Fountain Park. The students at Washington College keep Chestertown bustling all year round. Come for a visit – you won’t be disappointed.

The county seat of Kent County, on Maryland’s Upper Eastern Shore, Betterton is surrounded by the rich tapestry of farmland, Sassafrass River and Chesapeake Bay.
