It’s been a long week at work and you’re ready for some fun (or relaxation) this weekend. Fortunately, Southern Maryland offers activities for everyone, whether you want to relax or take the family out for some fun outdoor adventure! In this article, we discuss 5 of the best things to do in SOMD during the weekend.

Visit Chessie-Grace and Chumley, the Marine Museum’s Sea Otters!

Visit Solomons and check out the Calvert Marine Museum for some hands-on fun learning about the aquatic history of Southern Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay! Be sure to check out the otter exhibit and say hello to Chessie-Grace and Chumley, the museum’s two adorable otters.

Watch a Thrilling Race at the Maryland International Raceway!

From Spring to Fall, you can watch drag racing at Budds Creek Motocross Race Track! This sport is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.  You can even participate in the racing yourself!

Relax at one of Southern Maryland’s Many Wineries

If you’re looking to relax this weekend, consider visiting one of Southern Maryland’s many vineyards. There you can enjoy a glass of wine (or two) and take in the stunning views of the Chesapeake Bay. A few of our favorite local wineries are Romano Vineyard and Winery, Generations Vineyard, and Robin Hill Farm and Vineyards!

Take in the Sites at Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum

For another laid-back outing this weekend, take a trip back in time to the 17th century at Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum, which once served as a tobacco farm. You can also check out the Native American village museum on the property, which shows you how this community once lived. After your tour, stick around for the breathtaking sunset views on the Patuxent River!

Take a Stroll Through Historic St. Mary’s City

St. Mary’s City was Maryland’s first capital before Annapolis became the new capital in the 1690s! Modern-day St. Mary’s City is a tourist hub filled with nature trails, restaurants and cafes, historical attractions, and more. Why not make this part of your weekend plans and learn a little more about our State’s unique history!
