Welcome to the City of Salisbury!
We are Salisbury, Maryland, and our town was born from the headwaters of the Wicomico River. This special place, nestled squarely between the beaches and the bay, has been attracting people to its stunning location for almost 300 years.
Now one of the largest cities on the peninsula, Salisbury serves as the Capital of the Eastern Shore, combining vibrant economic opportunity, quality public education, world-class healthcare, reinvigorated environmental stewardship, globally known corporations, and an energetic and inspiring team of community leaders, to chart its own course, and craft a sound plan for its future.
We are Salisbury, and we are a college town. As the home of Salisbury University, we welcome students around the globe to come for a top-notch education. Around every corner, you can meet a former SU student who has fallen in love with our town, and decided to stay, and make it their own.
We are Salisbury, and we are a cultural town. From the art galleries and studios of our community’s artists to the celebration of the arts each month at Third Fridays, and the flavors and traditions of our many cultures, Salisbury is bringing the community together and celebrating the best of what makes us different.
We are Salisbury, and we are a river town. The Wicomico River starts here. Water runs through our downtown and our city park. Bridges criss-cross the water standing as a physical reminder of the importance on connections. The active port and marina districts remind us that the water continues to work for us, and the new Riverwalk reinforces that it is also ours to enjoy.
We are Salisbury, Maryland.
