The Kent Island area offers full-time residents and second homeowners easy access to and from the Western Shore with proximity to the Bay Bridge. There is a mix of residential communities, and waterfront condos appeal to families, vacationers, and boaters.  Further from the Rt. 50 corridor, you'll find sprawling waterfront estates and beautiful family communities.  The nature lover will find all they need with the six-mile Cross Island Trail. It offers a paved trail that meanders through the local creeks and marshes, or Terrapin Beach Park, a 276-acre nature park featuring 3.25-mile oyster chaff walking trail along wetlands tidal ponds, and sandy beaches. If it's seafood you are after, you'll find many waterfront restaurants specializing in local Maryland bounties.
