Dorchester County Visitor Center...

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Dorchester County Visitor Center kicked off National Tourism Week by showcasing the building's newest features.

The visitor center, which looks out at the Choptank River Bridge, has been there for 20 years. But it needed a bit of a facelift.

Over the last several months, they created a new mural on the building, which recognizes the significance of the watermen in Dorchester.

Beyond that, they placed a brand new pedestrian walk way.

And on May 8, 2017, they revealed their newest welcome sign.

The sign created by Cambridge Architectural used a new metal mesh technology, which looks like it's in motion.

The Director of Tourism, Amanda Fenstermaker, tells 47 ABC that the unveiling of the sign was a great way to kick start a new tourism season.

"We already see about 20,000 people come through this visitor center every year and we look forward to more people come in. I think this is just the perfect thing to happen to celebrate all the progress that we've made," Fenstermarker says.

The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center has brought in a large amount of traffic and we are told that right now is a great time to be a part of tourism in Dorchester County.
