Destination guide

One of the oldest colonial towns in Maryland

Located in Dorchester Country, Cambridge is one of the largest towns on the Eastern Shore in Maryland. Once inhabited by the Choptank Indians, the town was founded in the late 17th century by English colonists who used the surrounded land to grow tobacco. For such a small place, it has a surprisingly large number of famous residents including Annie Oakley, Harriet Tubman, and a former president of Liberia. The town's main industry today is tourism, with visitors flocking in for its charming old world feel. The best way to explore the town and surrounding area is from a Cambridge vacation rental.

Things to do

Arts and nautical history

When staying in one of the Cambridge vacation rentals, you can visit the Harriet Tubman Museum & Educational Center which chronicles her life and the building of the Underground Railroad. It is an engrossing and poignant exploration of US history. If you like art, you can visit the Joie de Vivre Gallery which houses works from several local artists, as well as the fascinating Dorchester Arts Center which exhibits visual arts and holds live stage performances. The private Brannock Maritime Museum has a collection of photographs and artifacts from the town's rich nautical history.


Over 1,700 miles of shoreline to discover

Dorchester County has hundreds of miles of shoreline and sea which provides plenty of things to do. If you like fishing, you can cast in your line at Chesapeake Bay or Nanticoke River to hook in a perch, flounder, rockfish, or crab. The nearby Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge has yet more hiking trails and paved cycling circuits where you can see plenty of marshland birdlife. Use your Cambridge vacation rental as a base, and head to the coast to go sailing, sea kayaking, or swing your clubs at the excellent local golf course.


Maritime bliss in Cambridge

Cambridge enjoys a maritime climate characterized by relatively mild weather. During the spring, the countryside around the town is blanketed in wildflowers, and the skies are clear and bright making it an excellent time for hiking. During the summer months, the temperature soars and thunderstorms are a common occurrence. The forests of the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge are awash with orange and golden hues during fall, making it particularly scenic, while winter sees some snow, particularly further inland.

Natural features

A wetland of international importance

The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge lies south of Cambridge and is made up of a brackish tidal marsh and over 8,000 acres of oak and pine tree forests. The refuge provides a habitat for a long list of species including teals, mallards, black ducks, woodpeckers, and deer, so you will certainly want to bring along your binoculars for animal-spotting adventures. In fact, it's been named one of the top spots for wildlife watching and nature photography in the USA.
