Summer in Maryland means heading downy o’shun, hon (as the locals say). But there’s more to Worchester County than Ocean City and the beach. With excursions to scenic Assateague Island, a round of golf at the impressive Bay Club, and or diner at the historic Drummer’s Café, just to name a few, satisfaction is certainly a guarantee.
The island is home to pelicans, egrets, ospreys, and its famous wild ponies. Perfect for any nature enthusiast, fill your weekend with exploration and wildlife. To learn more, visit www.assateagueisland.com.
