Welcome to Historic Downtown Cambridge, MD!

An exciting renaissance is underway in this historic waterfront city.  Stately old storefronts that were vacant not so long ago are now home to one-of-a-kind shops, boutiques, and galleries.  Downtown's new restaurants feature the work of award-winning chefs.  The streets have been redone with period lighting and fresh paintings.  Classic old buildings are being returned to their former glory.


Yet Eastern Shore traditions remain as strong as ever in Cambridge.  You can learn about Chesapeake ways in our museums, get a sense for them in our architecture, and get a taste of them in our restaurants.
