Beach
“About an hour away in Calvert County, MD: Featuring a half mile of bay-front sandy shore and a netted swimming area, Breezy Point Beach is an unspoiled spot to beat the heat. With plenty of space for sandcastles and shark-tooth hunting as well as a playground and picnic area, the park is a definite kid-pleaser. (The shore line can be a bit pebbly so bring water shoes). There is also a 200-foot pier for fishing and crabbing if you want to secure your supper. . Breezy Point is open from 6 a.m. to dusk. Entry to the park is cash only. Admission is $10 on weekends and $6 on weekdays for adults;”
