Sail away to Solomons , a picturesque island town nestled where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County Maryland.
Discover nature's wonder and pan for ancient sharks teeth at nearby Calvert Cliffs State Park, enjoy a day on the water or a casual stroll or bike ride around the island. Enjoy local concerts with headline acts like of Chicago, Bonnie Raitt, James Brown, Little Feat, Mearle Haggard, The Beach Boys...and the list goes on.
Stroll the Riverwalk and catch the sun as it dances on the waters of the wide Patuxent. Wander through unique gift shops, enjoy a seafood feast in one of our casual restaurants, hop on a jet ski, take a sailing lesson or rent a sailboat or power boat, buy some bait, and try your luck catching dinner.
Do you like Lighthouses? Solomons boasts one of the last remaining "screwpile" lighthouses that used to dot the Chesapeake Bay and adjoining rivers. The Drum Point Lighthouse on the grounds of the Calvert Marine Museum is open year-round, every day weather permitting except on holidays. The Calvert Marine Museum also provides tours of the Cove Point Lighthouse just a few miles up the road.
Solomons has great local attractions, but is also a wonderful place to stay when exploring Southern Maryland or Washington DC. Solomons is open all-year-round. From the delicious offerings from Solomons Restaurants during the Taste of Solomons in the late winter, the Solomons Plein Air Festival in the spring, our 4th of July Celebration in Summer, the Solomons Offshore Grand Prix and Waterman's Festival in the Fall, the year 'round festivals at Annmarie Garden, and of course, the Solomons Christmas Walk in December, you will always have something to do and see throughout the year.
