About This Area

Somerset County - "Nature’s Masterpiece". Somerset is located amidst the splendors of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, an area between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic, renowned for its natural charm.

Mother Nature displays her creativity here. We’re blessed with miles of tidal bays and rivers, lush woodlands, smog less skies, and seafood bounty. Somerset is a paradise for hunters, fishermen, photographers, and nature lovers.

This gracious, tranquil part of the world combines tradition and simplicity of life with the beauty of an untouched countryside. History is ever present, and every sunset is a celebration.

It’s hard to capture the true spirit of Somerset in words. You have to experience it. Trade the sounds of automobile horns for songbirds. Breathe our clean air. Sample our unforgettable seafood. Share stories with our people, who place a high value on friendliness. Experience our culture, our natural beauty, and our past.

Somerset County is less than a one-half day's ride by car from Dover, Norfolk, Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia. Any area of the county is less than an hour from Salisbury's outstanding retail area or the many resorts along the Maryland, Virginia and Delaware coasts bordering the Atlantic Ocean.

Discover a gentler time in America’s life. See what nature has saved for you.
