Visiting the Delmarva Peninsula | the town of Berlin, Maryland

The town of Berlin is one of my favorite places here on Delmarva and it's one that we often recommend to visitors. Located just off Route 50, about 8 miles inland of Maryland's favorite beach town of Ocean City, it's a refreshing change from the souvenir shops and boardwalk stores. See the links and info after the photos.


Main Street











The town is host to a variety of fairs and festivals all year long

...and the beautiful older brick buildings make for great photos.
