Start planning now! Here’s a little help with how to get to Talbot County:
Talbot County is on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, east-southeast of Washington, D.C. We’re approximately 90 minutes from both Baltimore and Washington, but travelers must cross the 4.3-mile-long Chesapeake Bay Bridge outside Annapolis, the longest continuous over-water structure in the world. From the bridge, just follow U.S. Route 50, the Eastern Shore’s main thoroughfare, which runs right through the heart of Talbot County.
With more than 600 miles of shoreline, Talbot County is a boater’s paradise. Not only does the western edge of the county touch the Chesapeake Bay, but five major rivers —the Wye, Miles, Tred Avon, Choptank, and Tuckhoe—either border or run through the county. And when you get here, we have many boatyards and marinas to service your needs, from fuel and supplies to docking and repairs — or just hanging out with fellow skippers.
Though there’s no commercial air service, Easton/Newnam Field Airport (ESN) provides access for aviation enthusiasts, corporate pilots, and local businesses. Constructed for use by the military during World War II, today Easton Airport is one of the busiest general aviation facilities in Maryland, linking Talbot County to the entire country and to the world. The airport is just two miles north of downtown Easton.
