Visit Queen Anne's County, MD

Located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, our landscape is characterized by picturesque waters, small towns, and open spaces. Friendly and welcoming, it’s a fun-loving boater’s paradise with waterfront restaurants, live music, and recreation trails.

Fresh seafood is a must while visiting! Local oysters are available through the winter and local crabs come into season soon after. Revel in live music on the waterfront while soaking up the landscape and our Chesapeake Bay sunsets at one of our many waterfront restaurants or dock bars!

Our parks and trails – both land and water – allow easy access to explore our natural areas. Each season brings unique changes to our wildlife and landscape.

The popular Cross Island Trail and South Island Trail are about 7 miles each and are flat and friendly for all levels of hikers and cyclists offering exceptional views. Explore Queen Anne’s County from the water by booking a boat trip for a sightseeing cruise or a hunting or fishing charter.

Tour our wineries, breweries, and distillery – from live music to farm animals and cornhole, each place has its own signature atmosphere.
