From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maryland's Western Shore, not to be confused with Western Maryland, is an area of Maryland west of the Chesapeake Bay. The term does not identify an official region of Maryland but it is often used in contrast to "Eastern Shore". The Western Shore overlaps with the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area and with Southern Maryland.

Since it is not an officially defined region, there is no official border for the Western Shore but it can be taken to include the following counties, which border the Chesapeake Bay on the west.

To residents of the Eastern Shore, the term "Western Shore" or "western shore" can refer to all of the counties of Maryland west of the Chesapeake Bay, particularly the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area.
