Take self-guided tour through coastal corridor with Cape to Cape booklet and signs

Take a self-guided tour through the coastal corridor, with the new “Cape to Cape Scenic Byway: A Guide to Delmarva’s Coastal Corridor” booklet and byway signs. Worcester County Tourism (WCT) recently released the guidebook, which highlights the tristate byway through Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. The coastal corridor spans 120 miles from Cape Henlopen, Delaware, through the Isle of Wight Wildlife Area, Assateague National Seashore, Pocomoke River State Park Forest, and EA Vaughn Wildlife Area in Maryland, to Cape Charles, Virginia.

“Our intention with this guide is to get visitors travelling the byway and taking the time to experience our heritage, our foods and our beautiful natural resources,” WCT Director Lisa Challenger said. “It’s really about digging a little deeper into an area you visit, and that’s what we want people to do.”

The guide includes a brief history, wildlife observation and fishing opportunities, cultural heritage sites, outdoor recreation, roads best taken, and seafood eateries throughout the coastal region. Copies of the guide can be downloaded at www.visitworcester.org, under Visitor’s Guides. Hardcopies are available at Ocean City and Maryland visitor centers and the WCT office in Snow Hill.

The Cape to Cape booklet and byway signs project was produced by WCT in partnership with the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA). Funding for the maps was provided in part by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) National Scenic Byways Program.
