About Visit Dorchester

With 1,700 miles of shoreline — more than any other county in Maryland — Dorchester offers everything from the mighty Chesapeake Bay to countless meandering waterways. Dramatic vistas of unspoiled countryside and marshland create the perfect backdrop for incredible sunsets.

No wonder Dorchester draws outdoor enthusiasts, birders, photographers, hunters and anglers, cyclists, boaters, paddlers, and others from near and far. USA Today calls Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge one of the 10 best spots for “amazing wildlife watching,” while Outdoor Photographer magazine names the refuge one of the top 25 spots worldwide for nature photographers. Experience the boundless natural beauty for yourself by kayak or canoe, sailboat or powerboat, bicycle, or on foot.
