Oxford, Maryland: Charming Town on Chesapeake Bay
Set on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, jutting out into the Chesapeake Bay, the village of Oxford is a former colonial port for British trade. Today, locals enjoy exploring the bay by sailboat, and fishermen catch crab and striped bass before passing them off to nearby seafood restaurants. The surrounding Talbot County encompasses more than 600 miles of shoreline, earning the area the title of “the Hamptons of the Chesapeake Bay.”
Founded in 1683, Oxford is one of the oldest towns in Maryland. The quaint downtown area is lined with art galleries, restaurants, and shops perfect for leisurely browsing. If you’re interested in the town’s long history, head to The Oxford Museum, which displays more than 2,500 artifacts, including paintings, furnishings, and official documents.
