Plan Your Annapolis and Southern Maryland Vacation

The long, narrow peninsula between the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay is Calvert County, an area that has not yet been completely overrun by tourism. Two principal routes—Route 2 from Annapolis and Route 4 from Washington, D.C.—merge near Sunderland and continue on together to the county's southern tip. Exploring the bay-side and riverside communities to either side of the highway, as well as the inland sites and attractions, will immerse you quickly in the tangible history and heritage of agriculture and fishing. Although southern Maryland is best known as a fishermen and boaters' paradise, it is also popular with cyclists. Its flat terrain and relatively uncongested roads make for perfect conditions to tour the area by bike.
