Many people may have forgotten or did not know that in the 1950's and 1960's, many people came to Hoopers Island for their summer vacations, or for a summer weekend trip. People would spend a weekend on the water, hiring a guide to take them fishing or crabbing or rent a boat.
However, as Ocean City became more popular, people started planning trips to Ocean City instead. But over the years and currently, Ocean City is no longer an affordable vacation spot. Hotel rooms start at $300 a night and everything is expensive.
You can come to Hoopers Island, enjoy very friendly people, rent a nice home starting at $150 a night. You can bring your kayaks and spend a great weekend exploring or fishing from your kayak.
Even when visiting Dorchester County, why stay at the Hyatt? A room there in June 2018, for 2 people is $559 a night!
Why take a short drive through Blackwater Refuge? Hoopers Island has fantastic views and a greater chance to view different wildlife here locally.
So come on down to Hoopers Island! Your money is well spent and supports the local economy, not a corporate chain.
