Located 55 mi/90 km southeast of Baltimore on the Eastern Shore's Choptank River, Cambridge, Maryland, has several sights that are worth a stop.
The Brannock Maritime Museum has an impressive model ship collection, and the Harriet Tubman Museum (open by appointment) honors the famous black abolitionist and her efforts in helping slaves escape through the Underground Railroad. You can get a feel for the past at the Spocott Windmill, a reproduction of an old mill, and at the adjacent one-room schoolhouse, which was built in the 1800s.
The Old Trinity Church, southwest of town in Church Creek, dates to the late 1600s, making it one of the oldest continuously operated churches in the U.S. If you're a nature lover, don't miss the enormous Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, about 10 mi/16 km south of town. More than 50,000 geese and ducks migrate through the area in the fall. You may also have the chance to spot a resident bald eagle (in the winter) or the endangered Delmarva fox squirrel.
