What to expect when visiting Kent Narrows
Looking forward to visiting Kent Narrows and Queen Anne’s County? Things may be different from your last visit. Here are a few important things to remember when visiting our waterfront.
Face masks: When enjoying public spaces bring a face mask or coverings, they are no longer required in most places, but it's still a good idea to have one handy.
Handwashing: Keeping your hands clean and germ-free is more important than ever, so be prepared to wash regularly and bring hand sanitizer for a more convenient option.
Please also be courteous in parking lots. Parking lots are for parking only. Pay attention to traffic patterns, some patterns have been changed to accommodate take-out business or new construction.
Some businesses and government agencies in the County still have employees working from remotely, and are not fully open for walk-in pedestrian traffic. Most will have a sign on the door or a posting on their website redirecting you as to how to best interact with them.
Changes in accommodations protocol: Your hotel or rental may reach out to you before your arrival to provide instructions for checking in and out that have been modified due to COVID-19. Housekeeping services may have also been changed, so please follow all instructions to make your stay easy.
Supporting local business: Many small businesses including our restaurants and fishing boats have lost business due to the COVID-19 closures, so show them some love by opting for local businesses.
Please be aware that when you cross County or State lines the rules and regulations may vary. The Kent Narrows Waterfront is in Queen Anne’s County. (you may view county-specific information here)
Enjoy the outdoors
When enjoying our parks and trails:
While it's nice to park your car so that you can see the views, please remember that many of our lots sit adjacent to businesses and residential properties. Please park in lots that have the most spaces available in them and avoid blocking entrances to businesses or residential property. If you are using the trails, you can almost always find spots in parking areas under the bridge.
Help us to keep Kent Narrows Clean
Please keep our places litter and trash free. If you are coming here to fish, please use the proper receptacles to dispose of your hooks and lines or carry them out with you. Please do not leave them in a trash can, it poses a hazard to others and to our wildlife.
