DAY TRIP!


A ferry tale: exploring Wicomico by bicycle  

Bicycling is a great activity when trying to social distance and still get outside and enjoy spectacular scenery and a little exercise. There is no better place than the Eastern Shore of Maryland with its deserted country roads, rivers, and ferries. Jody Arneson at MidAtlantic DayTrips explored White Haven and Wicomico County in an article early this year that includes fabulous pictures to whet your appetite. They started at the Whitehaven Hotel on the banks of the Wicomico River and loaded their bikes on the ferry, where they spoke with the ferryman, Dennis. See what they saw and learn what the Lower Shore offers to both casual and serious bicyclists.

CHEERS TO CRAFT BEER!
Fall and brewing on the Lower Eastern Shore
Those who have been trying to keep an eye on the craft beer scene of Maryland’s Eastern Shore lately can hardly blink without missing something new: a new beer, a switch to cans, take-out and delivery options. You can even buy beer online from some breweries and have it sent to you.  The COVID crisis has changed the landscape. However, the Lower Shore has been lucky; not only do we still host all the breweries open last Fall, we have even seen the opening of the first farm brewery and a meadery.  

October is known as a beer month. The annual Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany was cancelled, but luckily for us, we have many breweries and events to help us celebrate the start of Fall. Starting in Ocean City, Maryland and making our way to Salisbury is a great way to enjoy this autumn’s best beer and breweries here on the Lower Shore.
