Consider Solomons, MD - Maryland Second Homes and Gasoline Prices - As it gets warmer, thoughts of the perfect waterfront weekend getaway are on the minds of many. But what about gas prices - should that be putting those thoughts on hold?

Maybe not. Maryland offers great second home options in close driving proximity to the metro area. Even as gas prices approach close to $4.00 per gallon, consider these driving costs (based on 23 MPG, $3.85 per gallon):

  Miles to DC    23 MPG Cost Total Trip  2x mo   Cost Yearly
Solomons 62   $10.38  $20.76 $41.51    $498.16    
Mountains 179   $29.96  $59.93  $119.85    $1,438.23      
Beaches 139   $23.27  $46.53  $93.07    $1,116.83

Maryland's waterfront is close and the options are great. When considering waterfront options in nearby states Maryland's waterfront offers closer driving distances and more economical driving expenses. 

Solomons, MD bears looking at, not only because of the great waterfront found here, but the convenience of not dealing with Bay Bridge traffic and westbound interstate traffic as well as the cost to fill the gas tank easing the headaches a bit -

and isn't that the whole idea behind a weekend getaway?

I think Solomons is one of Maryland's best kept secrets!!!

For many years I docked my boat at Zahniser's Yachting Center off C Street.  Sailing out of Solomons gives you some of the best access to yachting destinations on the Chesapeake Bay.  It's an easy day sail across the Bay to Oxford when the wind is light.  If it's blowing a little harder, St. Michaels' is not much further.  For longer trips (three day weekends), sailing down the Bay to Fishing Creek, then across to Crisfield, then back home on the third day to Solomons offers some great sailing.

Located about an hour drive from downtown Washington DC, Annapolis Maryland and many other points, Solomonsis one of the best and closest get-aways from city life!!!

Just had dinner at The Dry Dock at Zahniser's the other night and at O'Leary's in Annapolis last weekend. Solomons is a great getaway - and closeby. What a beautiful place we get to live and work!
