Solomons Visitor Information Center

Solomons Visitor Information Center

In Southern Maryland, history and culture mingle on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

The Solomons Regional Information Center will help you find your way to Chesapeake Gateways in Southern Maryland and to this beautiful town's other attractions. Solomons is a quiet 128-year old waterfront village located in Calvert County where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay.

Settled comfortably around a deep, protected harbor rimmed with busy marinas, the area has become a major visitor destination in historic Southern Maryland. Visit nearby Gateways, stroll the Riverwalk, sail to a sandy beach for your own private picnic, or catch a Rockfish.
