A Rural Community Notes COVID Silver Linings
Wide open spaces, friendly masked-faces, hospitable places are the ideal formula for a safe getaway. Just one of the silver linings we have experienced as a result of COVID-19 here in Kent County, Maryland. Kent County is located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland directly east of Baltimore and is bounded by the Sassafras and Chester Rivers, the State of Delaware and the Chesapeake Bay. Over 19 million people live within 100 miles, making Kent County a viable destination, for those looking to safely travel by car. Kent County, Maryland is the least populated County in the State. Offering many outdoor activities that people are seeking since ‘social distancing’ has become top of mind. Opportunities to get out on the rivers and the Chesapeake Bay top the list. Kent County’s Winery, Crow Vineyard, has large expansive views of grapes and the charm of an authentic family farm. Owner, Judy Crow shared “guests can experience wine tastings in a safe environment and enjoy our lovely restaurants that are offering outdoor seating”.
