The Port Towns
The Towns of Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, Cottage City, and Edmonston, MD



Prince Georges county has so much history. The Port Towns area alone has 10 historic sites.  With the Battle of Bladensburg fought here and being so close to the nations capital the land is rich in history. There is an historic site within minutes of your home, each representing a unique aspect of the Port Towns history; your history. We invite you to walk the grounds, visit the sites, and experience a step back to another time period.

A Destination

The Port Towns has something to offer to all from the local musician to the small business, owner to the family that wants a safe place for their children to thrive.  Through our partnerships, we provide a support system for growth.  We advocate to improve governmental investment, encourage private investments and support our local business by providing advise and connections to supporting organizations.  We coordinate events that support local vendors and build on our amenities to create a destination that fosters economic opportunity.



The Port Towns has hundreds of parks to enjoy a nice day out.  All four towns sit on the banks of the River so canoeing, paddling boating and kayaking are all available in the area.  The Bladensburg Waterfront Park even has River tours available.



The Port Towns has a big variety of cuisine to choose from when dining out.  We have plenty of name brand restaurants as well as lots of cozy “hole-in-wall” places to go for lunch.  A couple of  Port Towns restaurants have even been recognized in the Washingtonian so we definitely have established a strong  culinary presence in the area.




Once a hot music spot, the Port Towns has managed to keep clubs that opened in the 40s and 50s running today.  Come out and enjoy live Caribbean music at Crossroads Nightclub, or sit at the bar and listen to honky tonk at the Surf club, or even watch a play at The Publick Playhouse. Diversity is something inevitable here!
