The Eastern Shore of Maryland is a part of the U.S. state of Maryland that lies mostly on the east side of the Chesapeake Bay and consists of nine counties, seven of which have Chesapeake Bay coastlines. The region also contains Maryland's only coast on the Atlantic Ocean. As of the 2010 census, its population was 449,226, with just under 8% of Marylanders living in the region. The term "Eastern Shore" distinguishes a territorial part of the state of Maryland from the Western Shore of Maryland, land west of the Chesapeake Bay. The Eastern Shore is part of the larger Delmarva Peninsula that Maryland shares with Delaware and Virginia.

  • The Eastern Shore of Maryland is a part of the U.S. state of Maryland that lies mostly on the east side of the Chesapeake Bay and consists of nine counties, seven of which have Chesapeake Bay coastlines. The region also contains Maryland's only coast on the Atlantic Ocean. As of the 2010 census, its population was 449,226, with just under 8% of Marylanders living in the region. The term "Eastern Shore" distinguishes a territorial part of the state of Maryland from the Western Shore of Maryland, land west of the Chesapeake Bay. The Eastern Shore is part of the larger Delmarva Peninsula that Maryland shares with Delaware and Virginia. The Eastern Shore is largely rural, with the small city of Salisbury being the largest community. The economy is dominated by three sectors: fishing along the coasts, especially for shellfish such as the blue crab; farming, especially large-scale chicken farms; and tourism, especially centered on the Atlantic coast resort of Ocean City.

  • L’Eastern Shore du Maryland est la partie de l'État du Maryland qui se trouve sur la Péninsule de Delmarva, entre le Delaware et l'Eastern Shore de Virginie. Elle se situe pour l'essentiel sur la rive est de la Baie de Chesapeake avec un prolongement vers la façade atlantique de la péninsule ; elle compte neuf comtés. Le recensement des États-Unis de 2010 dénombre 449.226 habitants, soit près de 8 % de la population du Maryland. Le terme Eastern Shore (« rive orientale » ou « rivage oriental ») visait à l'origine à le différencier du Western Shore, le territoire situé vis-à-vis, sur la côte ouest de la Baie de Chesapeake. * Portail de la géographie * Portail du Maryland (fr)
  • Eastern shore är en vanlig benämning på Chesapeake Bays östra strand och på de delar av Maryland och Virginia som finns på den sidan av viken. Det är främst Marylands östra del som kallas för Eastern shore. Eastern shore är alltså Delmarvahalvöns västra strand. Största stad är Easton i Maryland. Eastern shore var tidigare rätt isolerat. Numera har många välbärgade personer i Washington med omnejd sommarhus på Eastern shore. (sv)
