Welcome to Berlin Main Street
America’s Coolest Small Town

Berlin Main Street is a thriving and diverse community designated both as a Maryland Main Street Community and an Arts and Entertainment District located just 7 miles from Ocean City.

Our Visitor’s Center is always open with someone to help you Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and 11am-1pm on the weekends.

Our Main Street boasts over 50 retail shops and 10 dining establishments, coffee shops, bakeries, sweets, antiques and more.

The Arts are alive in Berlin with galleries featuring fine art, individual studios, co-ops and local and national handcrafts. We have an Art Stroll the 2nd Friday of every month.

History is everywhere with 47 structures on the National Historic Register. The Taylor House Museum is the local archive for all things historic in Berlin.

Come visit Berlin and join us for a quiet journey back in time where we are Historically Charming & Artistically Alive.
