Take a day trip to beautiful St. Mary's County, enjoy the beautiful weather and learn a little bit about America's history!  From early Colonial Settlements at Historic St Mary's City, to lighthouses located on public parks and amazing waterways - St Mary's County is rich in history!

 And, be sure to stop by one of our wonderful crab houses (Seabreeze in Mechanicsville is my personal fave!) and delight in the flavor of our wonderful Patuxent River crabs!
