WELCOME TO SOUTHERN MARYLAND! - Where relaxation is a lifestyle....not a vacation
Southern Maryland is a rich historical destination with sites and cities that date back to the days of the early English settlers. Comprised of St. Mary's, Calvert and Charles Counties, Southern Maryland hosts the Chesapeake Bay, the Potomac River, the Patuxent River and great coastal wilderness. With state parks and great fishing, this historical location offers a relaxing escape from the hassles of urban life. Second homes with great views at good prices are the bounty found here.
The Gateway to Southern Maryland is Charles County. Less than an hour from Washington, D.C. and Annapolis, Maryland, you find first-class fishing, spectacular shoreline, and a birdwatching paradise. Wildlife, including bald eages, make this area perfect for a second home for nature lovers. If you are a history buff, almost everything in the tri-county area is historic, and well preserved. Charles County towns include La Plata, Waldorf, Port Tobacco, Hughesville and White Plains.
St. Mary's County is farther down the peninsula, equally historic. Home to the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, the influence from military families create a unique environment. St. Mary's County is a 367 square mile estuary peninsula with an abundance of shoreline on the Patuxent & Potomac Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay alone. Towns include Leonardtown, Mechanicsville, California & Lexington Park. For those individuals in the market for a second home, St. Mary's county is approximately 60 miles from Washington, D.C. and 80 miles from Baltimore.....and best of all you will never have to be concerned with the Bay Bridge traffic! Easy access to water makes St. Mary's County a fun place for a vacation home.
Calvert County is hugged on one side by the Potomac River and the by the salty Chesapeake Bay. There are many water oriented communties and parks with public beaches. Tidal marshlands offer great access to wildlife. Calvert County includes quaint towns such as the resort town of Solomons, North Beach, Prince Frederick and Chesapeake Beach with great second homes in historical surroundings.
