Tourism & Recreation

In Garrett County, recreational and economic opportunities run as deep as our waters. 

Over 1.4 million tourists annually flock to Garrett County in pursuit of fresh air—and fresh perspectives. They elevate their sense of adventure in our Appalachian abode, boasting 150 miles of trails, 65 miles of shoreline, award-winning restaurants, recreation, and resorts. From antiquing to adventure sports, Garrett County is reinventing rural recreation.

A successful tourist economy does not happen in a vacuum—or in a boardroom, for that matter. Together with shopkeepers, educators, and private industry, we take a collaborative approach to business development. Our initiatives are robust, and our workforce is recreation-ready.

We also had side links to: Garrett Trails, Mountain MD Heritage Area, and the Chamber of Commerce.
