Explore Calvert County

If you’re the sort of travelers who like to fit as much activity into your trips as possible, be sure to visit the impressive Calvert Marine Museum. Here you will learn about the story of the Chesapeake Bay from interactive exhibits, fossils, and a furnished cottage-style lighthouse. Live otters frolic in an enclosure at the museum year-round. During the summer months, well-known musicians perform at the museum’s large outdoor concert venue. 

Beauty abounds at the nearby Annmarie Garden Sculpture Park, where you can stroll a quarter-mile wooded walking path while taking in dozens of sculptures. 

Outdoor aficionados will want to check out Calvert Cliffs State Park, which stretches for 24 miles along the Chesapeake Bay. Take a hike to enjoy the beach views, or try your hand at fossil hunting. Hundreds of fossil species from the Miocene era have been found at the Calvert Cliffs, and fossil hunters commonly discover oyster shells and shark teeth.

 

Go Fishing and Boating

Fishing might not sound romantic, but the quiet nature of the hobby can be relaxingly therapeutic, and the excitement of a big catch is sure to be memorable. Head to the Solomons Island public fishing pier by going under the Solomons Island Road bridge.

Stop by Bunky’s Charter Boats, a Solomons mainstay since around 1930, to rent a boat for fishing or simply cruising the Patuxent River. Bucky’s tackle shop is stocked with everything you need to fish, or you can rent a boat and supplies to go crabbing.

For a less messy hands-on experience, make reservations for a dinner cruise to a waterfront restaurant.
