Maryland

Southern Maryland

Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties.

The state’s original capital, now called Historic St. Mary’s City, is preserved as a living history museum, but don’t think for a minute that this area’s appeal is limited to those who enjoying delving into the past.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find better bass fishing anywhere on the East Coast, and the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the Patuxent and Potomac rivers are a hit with boaters, too. If you prefer to just sit back and take it easy, you can do that here, as well.
It’s where you’ll find a number of tiny waterside resorts that beckon to travelers eager to abandon their cares.
