Visit Hagerstown

Located in Western Maryland, Hagerstown & Washington County, Maryland, is located at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, and just south of the Mason-Dixon Line. We are part of the Appalachian Highlands, where you can take in the beauty of cultivated valleys, and pastoral low rolling mountains.

Accessible on the I-81, we are an easy stopover for Canadians travelling south to warmer climates for the winter. Founded in 1776, we are laced with five National Parks, and over 30 museums and monuments that span three centuries. Our historical legacy includes Fort Frederick — the only remaining French and Indian War fort, Antietam National Battlefield, 19thcentury stone arch bridges, and the Cheaspeake & Ohio Canal.

Hagerstown’s Arts & Entertainment District is home to the Maryland Theatre which offers year-round performances and events, including Maryland Symphony Orchestra concerts. Hagerstown is also home to the nationally acclaimed Western Maryland Blues Fest. Our Museum of Fine Arts, located in the award-winning City Park, boasts an outstanding collection with pieces by world-renowned artists such as Picasso, Rodin, and Norman Rockwell.

Recreational activities are abundant. Imagine relaxing in a canoe on the Potomac, and sipping wine as you make your way to a local venue for dinner. Or, take a serene hike along the Appalachian Trail.
We know you will enjoy all that our area has to offer. So much so, that you will begin planning your next visit before the first one is over.
