In the Historic District of Princess Anne, Maryland
Enjoy a relaxing stroll through the historic district of Princess Anne, teeming with lovingly preserved historic homes from the Colonial, Federal and Victorian eras. Walk to the nearby Teackle Mansion for a tour of one of Maryland’s beautiful historic manses, then meander along the water in Manokin River Park. Take a walk down the quaint main street–featuring antique, coffee and gift shops, eateries and an ice cream parlor serving delectable gourmet ice creams and desserts.
Local events include the annual Chesapeake Celtic Festival on the first weekend in October, and the Annual Skipjack Races on Labor Day Weekend. Olde Princess Anne Days is celebrated in October with home and garden tours, carriage rides, street fair and more.
Nestled between the beach (Atlantic) and the Bay (Chesapeake), nearby nature attractions include Assateague and Chincoteague (35 minute drive), where you can share the pristine, natural seashore with wild ponies. Or for some really wild night life, there’s always Ocean City, a 30 minute drive away. Within minutes of various wildlife sanctuaries, rivers, waterways and marshes, where hundreds of bird species can be observed. Kayak and canoe rentals are available on the Pocomoke River or the Tangier Sound (opening to the Bay). A ferry boat ride away are Smith Island and Tangier Islands, where Colonial English/Cornish dialects are still spoken.
