The small fishing community of Lusby Maryland, lies on a peninsula formed by the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay to the east, just about 60 miles from Washington. There are many beautiful swimming and fishing spots here at the river and bay beaches and people love to see the ancient cliffs, fossils and hike in the area.
You'll want to check out The Cove Point Lighthouse, dating from 1828, which is truly beautiful inside. Calvert Cliffs State Park stretches for 30 miles along the coastline and the famous cliffs (formed over 15 million years ago) are an incredible source of fossil remains of prehistoric sharks, whales, bird and other creatures. You can search for your own fragments of the past on the beach. A hike will take you to a beach and miles of trails lead you through woodland.
Flags Pond Nature Park is a gorgeous, uncrowded sandy beach with great shells and rocks to discover including sharks teeth. Tidal pools and walking trails make it a fun spot for the family to spend a day.
Back in Lusby make sure you stop by boutique Solomons Island Winery for a great selection of wines for tasting.
To make the most of the beach and outdoor nature walks visit between June and September for warm, sunny weather.
