See the Fall foliage.

Fall is one of the best seasons on the Eastern shore because the oppressive heat of summer has passed, leading to crisp breezes and the most magnificent leaf colors you have ever seen.

Spend some time enjoying this short but magical season, with the brilliant crimson, gold, and canary colored leaves.

Take a scenic Sunday drive down a winding, country road, or head out in a boat to see the view from the water.

Take the time to enjoy it now because winter, with it’s cold and snow, will be here soon.

Enjoy the great outdoors (without the heat).

The much cooler weather in Fall means we can enjoy all of the outdoor activities we love without the heat and humidity that made them difficult during the summer.

You can paddle down the Manotokin River in a kayak or on a stand up paddle board.

Collect sea glass (and other treasures) walking the Chesapeake Bay shoreline or hit a few balls on nearby golf courses.

Hiking and biking are two more fun activities that are particularly well-suited for beautiful Autumn afternoons.
