trip ideas: family fun

Here are a few ways to keep the kids happy and interested as you explore Dorchester County…

Swimming at the HyattGet 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. Rent a kayak, paddleboard or bicycle from our adventure outfitters. Cast your line or net for fish or crabs. Or let loose on the waterfront playgrounds at our local parks, where you also can catch views of the Choptank River Lighthouse and the Nathan of Dorchester Skipjack.

Pick-your-own berries or explore a pumpkin patch (depending on the season) at a roadside stand. Make friends with a horse and go on a trail ride. Or join a spooky ghost walk in downtown Cambridge.

If the weather doesn’t allow for outdoor activities, try some indoor fun at Cabin Fever Play Centre, or strike ten pins at Choptank Bowling & Billiards or see a first-run movie at Cambridge Premier Cinemas. For more educational fun, visit one of our engaging heritage museums to learn about local history, maritime history or Harriet Tubman.

Finally, stay at a family-friendly resort like the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort in Cambridge, which has a boatload of ideas for kid-friendly entertainment and also offers Camp Hyatt, where they’ll take care of the kids while the adults indulge in the spa, golf, or exploring the area.

Many of our festivals include family-friendly fun, so be sure to check our events calendar.
