Cambridge is a charming historic town on the Choptank River, a major tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Located in Dorchester County, Maryland, just 90 miles southeast of Washington DC, the waterfront community makes a great getaway destination for those who enjoy outdoor recreation and exploring small towns. The historic district features brick paved streets with parks, a marina, museums, the nearby Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Museum and a lighthouse on the water. The area attracts nature lovers, birders, photographers, cyclists, and paddlers to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.
Over the past few years, Cambridge has been experiencing a renaissance, as old buildings are being renovated and returned to their former glory. One-of-a-kind shops, boutiques, and galleries, as well as a variety of new restaurants, have opened. Our favorite is RAR Brewery which produces some of the Eastern Shore’s most desired craft beers and a gastropub menu. Additionally, in recent years, tens of millions of dollars in commercial development along RT 50 has helped bring more to the economic infrastructure of Dorchester County.
Cambridge is home to the Maryland Ironman competition which brings in thousands of visitors to the area – so it’s a great place to get active! Start your search with us here – now.
