Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Cumberland, a quiet former frontier town, has a population of 24,000 residents. Cumberland is surrounded by hills and rural farmlands, and has several state parks in the area.

Once a prominent coal town, Cumberland is now home to Canal Place, which envelops the terminus of the C&O Canal. The Western Maryland Railroad Station is located here, and scenic trips to nearby Frostburg are popular in the fall as the leaves change. Quaint shopping is available along the few downtown blocks in Cumberland, and the Trestle Walk/Promenade and Crescent Lawn is a prime local spot for both an outdoor stroll and getting a taste of the area. A walkway linking the railway station with the C&O Canal, the walk boasts a park and recreation spot for its visitors.

The one room cabin that was once the George Washington's headquarters is located in Cumberland. Today, it is the only remaining structure left of Fort Cumberland?the rallying point of the French and Indian War. Rocky Gap State Park, in Cumberland, and Dan's Mountain State Park, near Frostburg, offer recreations for the outdoor lover from ample camping facilities at Rocky Gap to hiking, picnicking and swimming at Dan's Mountain.

Cumberland is located in the northwestern most part of Maryland, along the Potomac River and the border of West Virginia's eastern panhandle.
