Here are a few ways to keep the kids happy and interested as you explore Dorchester County…
Get outdoors and explore nature at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, which makes it easy to watch for bald eagles, great blue herons, and other waterfowl and wildlife along their four-mile Wildlife Drive, which you can explore by car, by bicycle, or by foot.
Pick your own berries or flowers, explore a pumpkin patch, or wander the corn maze (depending on the season) at Emily’s Produce, where you can also see goats and chickens and have fun in the play area.
If the weather doesn’t allow for outdoor activities, try some indoor fun and burn off steam at Cabin Fever Play Centre, which has all kinds of play equipment for the younger kids and an extensive arcade for the older kids.
Be inspired by the extraordinary life of Harriet Tubman, who was born here in Dorchester County. Explore some of the sites along the road trip known as the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway. Best sites for kids include Bucktown General Store (open by appointment) and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park & Visitor Center, where they offer a great Junior Ranger program for kids.
