Welcome to Oxford, Maryland

A charming, tree-lined and waterbound village with a population of less than 1000, Oxford is one of the oldest towns in America and has a long history in maritime activities. Early in the day, you will still find local watermen at the town dock unloading the catch of the day. You can watch the sailboats arriving from all over the bay to dine at the various local restaurants our town has to offer.

While other waterfront towns have succumbed to waterfront condos and glitz, Oxford has retained its historic charm. The tourism and leisure activities are fueled by people's desire for quiet charm, fresh air, summer breezes, and a haven from the hustle and bustle of city life.

El Galeon Andalucia: A Cheaspeake Journey

"El Galeon Andalucia: A Cheaspeake Journey" traces the 16th century replica ship's path from two of its ports of call in September 2014 -- Baltimore to Oxford,MD. Watch the ship move through the Bay, under the iconic spans of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and on to a welcome in Oxford, where you'll climb aboard and see just how authentic to its heritage this vessel really is. This documentary-style piece runs about 10 minutes. Brought to you courtesy of I-4 Video of Easton.
