Information for Visitors of Berlin MD
In addition to our exciting Annual Events our town, though small, has many interesting offerings year round for the casual visitor. Located only 7 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, Berlin enjoys many resort-type features while maintaining the quiet and historic charm of a turn-of-the-century village.
One of the first things a visitor may notice along our Main Street is the many Art Galleries. We are also pleased to be the home of the Worcester County Arts Council which maintains an open-to-the-public, full-time gallery filled with the works of local artists. As a visitor, you will find an abundance of choices for dining; from down-home cooking to Bistro style, all the way to elegant, formal, gourmet dining!
Berlin has it all within the three block commercial district - live entertainment, dining and lodging. We are proud to be the home of the famed, historic Atlantic Hotel and the lovely restored, Merry Sherwood Plantation Inn as well as the very charming and comfortable, Holland House B & B. In addition, for the more adventuresome, we have two fully equipped, public campgrounds nearby; Frontier Town and the new Fort Whaley Campground with the Assateague Island National Park and the Maryland State Park located on Assateague Island.
While strolling through our tree-lined streets within the Historic Downtown District you will find many quaint Shops housed within historic brick buildings with high ceilings and wood floors. Fine antiques, clothing, and gift shops are abundant. In addition, for those who take their culture straight, there is the Calvin B. Taylor House Museum, which offers tours and monthly lawn concerts during the summer season.
Finally, with all of the charm, it is certainly no surprise that Historic Berlin, Maryland was selected to be the setting for the films, Runaway Bride in 1998 and Tuck Everlasting in 2000.
