Welcome to Berlin Main Street





Welcome to Downtown Berlin
Voted America’s Coolest Small Town

Downtown Berlin 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 & Assateague Island.

Our Welcome Center foyer is open 24/7 and with someone to assist you Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and 11am-1pm on Saturdays.

Our downtown boasts over 70 retail shops, dining establishments, coffee shops, bakeries, sweets, antiques, art galleries and more. We have many items made right here in Berlin too.

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. Listen to a short audio history tour on our Berlin History page and/or downtown our walking tour map on the same page.

Travel back into the past with a stroll our Berlin, Maryland downtown streets. The path you walk is the same as that taken by the Assateague and Pocomoke Indians well before the colonial period. Today the town is a wonderful example of what can be done when citizens work together for the success of their community. One of our streets is over 100 years old – and made of crushed oyster shells.
