We strongly desire candidates to live on the Eastern Shore. This region is largely agricultural and offers unlimited access to water sports in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. 

Community Description

The Eastern Shore comprises nine Maryland counties, each with their own special history and rich heritage. The waterfront lifestyle and rural community provide an unspoiled and vibrant way of life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

The Eastern Shore has various environmental landscapes, from the saltwater marshes along the Bay to the old growth forests inland. The Chesapeake Bay to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east serve to moderate the temperature, with winter averaging in the mid-30s, producing an annual snowfall of less than 12 inches, and summer averaging in the upper 80s.

The region provides opportunities for a wide variety of activities, as well, including sailing, boating, rowing, hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, birding, horseback riding, camping and swimming. Beach life is just a couple hours away at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and Ocean City, Maryland. Picturesque state parks and wildlife preserves on the Eastern Shore include Turner's Creek State Park, Tuckahoe State Park, Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge.

The region is home to scores of cultural, artistic and community service nonprofit organizations and features a wide array of festivals, fairs and other events throughout the year, including the world-renowned Waterfowl Festival in Easton. For those inclined to travel, the cities of Salisbury, Annapolis, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia – and four major airports – are all within a few hours’ drive time.

Children love life on the Eastern Shore, too. In addition to a full complement of public, independent and parochial schools, enriching after-school and summer activities are offered by YMCA of the Chesapeake, performing arts groups, church-sponsored camps, youth sports leagues and local organizations, including Academy Art Museum, Pickering Creek, the Talbot County Community Center and many others. Families can enjoy spending the day together on the tall ship Sultana, on the beach or visiting the Rock Hall Waterman's Museum or the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. However you prefer to enjoy your day with your loved ones, there are sure to be memorable experiences around every corner.
