Cambridge, the county seat of Dorchester County, Maryland, was settled in 1684 and is one of the oldest towns in Maryland. Cambridge is a moderate sized town with a population of about 11,000 people (2000 Census).
The town sits right on the Choptank River. Route 50 crosses the Choptank just north of town. The Cambridge Municipal Yacht Basin provides a good place for visiting boaters to dock.
You may have driven right through Cambridge if you travel route 50. Next time through, plan on stopping to see what the town has to offer.
The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa, and Marina has been a major draw to Cambridge since its completion in 2002. With a golf course, 150-slip marina, and resort amenities, it’s a destination in itself.
