Berlin, MD America's Coolest Small Town

America’s Coolest Small Town


Berlin, Maryland earned the title of America’s Coolest Small Town for a reason! You’re sure to fall in love with the historic charm and all the fun in this small town.


Welcome to Berlin, best known as America’s Coolest Small Town and the set of not one but TWO Hollywood movies! If you’ve ever visited, you’ll understand why so many people are drawn to Main Street Berlin. The streets are lined with classic brick buildings filled with charming shops, art galleries, and restaurants, and surrounding homes boast an old-world style that you just can’t find today. Most people don’t realize that, while Downtown Berlin is small, the actual footprint of Berlin is quite large and includes a substantial amount of agricultural land. Many locals are drawn to living in Berlin because of the activities it offers, its low-key feel, and its proximity to the beaches. Berlin is comprised mostly of single-family homes, but there are some condo and townhome options available, especially in the community of Ocean Pines.
