A scenic peninsula, the County of Kent, is situated where the Chester and Sassafras Rivers meet the Chesapeake Bay. Located on the Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland, Kent County is less than a two-hour drive from Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Annapolis and Northern Virginia.
Historic waterfront towns, including Chestertown, Rock Hall, Galena, Georgetown and Betterton , offer sunset cruise charters, small beaches, kayaking, fishing charters, boating, sailing, museums, theaters, art galleries, antiquing, and local seafood, including the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab.
It is said that General George Washington made many trips to Kent County. In 1782 he gave the “College of Chester”, located in Chestertown, a donation of 50 guineas and permission to use his name. General Washington served on the Board of “Washington College” until 1789 when he became the President of the United States.
In Kent County, Maryland, the War of 1812 was up close and personal. Given the amount of Chesapeake Bay shoreline in the county, British ships were always nearby.
Kent County is the perfect destination for combining the past and the present.
