Solomons Island Getaway View All ItinerariesDay 1 Solomons Island. Where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay, you will find Solomons Island, a place of uncommon charm and unspoiled beauty. Visit the Calvert Marine Museum to trace the rich maritime history and diversity of the Chesapeake Bay. Virtually climb through the hatch at Drum Point Lighthouse or check out Cove Point Lighthouse, the oldest continuously working lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay. A short cruise on the museum’s historic “bugeye” boat, the Wm. B. Tennison, gives an unforgettable view of the soaring Thomas Johnson Bridge. Next, head to Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center featuring art inside and out. Many sculptures lining the wooded path are on loan from the Smithsonian Institution. At the arts center, view changing exhibits. Finish your day at a waterside restaurant. From steaks to seafood, there’s something for everyone in this quaint town. Day 2 Get Outside! The towering cliffs of the Chesapeake Bay at the famous Calvert Cliffs State Park are etched with imprints of creatures from many eons ago when this area was covered by an ancient sea. Find prehistoric shark teeth on the beach and relax as your children play on the recycled tire playground. Head over to Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum situated on 560 acres along the Patuxent River and St. Leonard Creek. Explore the re-created eastern woodland Native American village. Continue on to Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Sanctuary where a boardwalk trail winds through one of the northernmost stands of bald cypress trees in North America. Finish your day with a locally-made wine or freshly-brewed beer from one of Calvert County’s six wineries or seven breweries. Several restaurants in close-by Prince Frederick offer local pairings.
