Marion Station is
a town steeped in history. It
is located in
Somerset County, one of three counties (including Wicomico and
Worcester) that comprise Maryland's Lower Eastern Shore. In
the past several years, the Lower Shore has become a popular
destination for travelers, vacationers, families,
retirees and singles.
The area overflows with attractions and amenities,
yet still keeps a quiet rural charm and a home-town feel.
There are two Universities, a Community College, a Professional
Baseball Team (the Delmarva Shore Birds), 3 State Parks, several
shopping malls, and over 20 museums that uncover and interpret the
culture and heritage of the Lower Shore.
Marion is located
very near waterfront attractions. There is a public boat ramp two
miles away in Colbourne Creek, and the town is located six miles
from Crisfield (the seafood capital of the world) on the Annemessex River and Tangier Sound.
Charter boats, fishing, water sports and seafood are major
attractions in Crisfield. Crisfield also houses the largest
state owned Marina - Somers Cove Marina. The Atlantic Beaches
including Ocean City and Assateague Island are approximately 50
Golfing, hiking, biking, bird-watching, swimming, fishing, boating,
shopping, and site-seeing. The links below will show just a
few of the attractions and amenities the Lower Shore has to offer.
