Cambridge Travel Guide

Cambridge, a charming Dorchester County city, sits beside the Choptank River. It’s the fourth biggest city in the Eastern Shore region and boasts a rich maritime history that is celebrated throughout the year. Despite having a relatively small number of permanent residents, Cambridge is a must see on the bucket list of many travelers.

Things to Do in Cambridge

Like many ocean side cities, Cambridge offers a variety of unique outdoor activities. To get the vacation started, many visitors make it a point to go sailing on the Skipjack Nathan of Dorchester- a 60+ foot skipjack that offers sailors the chance to catch oysters, crabs, and other small creatures from the boat's deck, as well as to learn about the history of Cambridge. Long Wharf Park, on the other hand, offers a unique experience from Cambridge’s shores- visitors can bring a blanket and picnic basket and spend the day relaxing on the pier, watching the boats come in, and marveling over the old fisherman-style homes in the area. The Choptank River Lighthouse is a great night destination, while the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is better suited for day trips and visitors who value wildlife. Bringing things indoors, the Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center enlightens curious visitors about the life and slavery relief efforts of Harriet Tubman and the UGRR (underground railroad) by way of carefully designed exhibits and stories. The Richardson Maritime Museum, Sago Spa & Salon, and the Christ Episcopal Church are also locations worthy of mention.
