Pocomoke City is Maryland’s
“Friendliest Town on the Eastern Shore!” Multiple
museums, a refurbished theater, a charming downtown, and river
cruises make Pocomoke worth discovering!
City, settled on the banks of the Pocomoke River in the 1600s,
was a thriving shipbuilding and commerce center. Three shipyards
once operated here along this river front during the late 1800s
and early 1900s. Today the town supports several museums and historic
attractions which portray their rich history, a 9-hole public
golf course, restaurants, shops and a riverfront park.
City is located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore at the intersection
of U.S. Route 13 and Route 113, and is five miles from the Maryland-Virginia
