Charles County, the gateway to historic Southern Maryland, is a place where you can find first-class fishing, a dense population of nesting Bald Eagles, acres of beautiful forest land, 150 miles of spectacular shoreline, enough history to fill several books, sumptuous fresh seafood, top-flight golf, and the wildest wildlife this side of the Potomac. Further to the south, St. Clement's Island in the Potomac River marks the point at which 140 hardy adventurers landed on March 25, 1634 after sailing for five months from the Isle of Wight on the Ark and the Dove.
The waterfront village of Solomons is situated where the Patuxent River joins the Chesapeake Bay with plenty of opportunities for kayaking, sailing, fishing, biking, and more. The island town hosts special events including art exhibits, cruises, concerts, Solomons Maritime Festival, Solomons Christmas Walk, and other celebrations. Other area attractions include Calvert Marine Museum, Calvert Cliffs State Park, and Drum Point Lighthouse.
A member inn of the Maryland Bed and Breakfast Association is conveniently located near Washington, DC for a day trip.
