The basics

In Solomons, Maryland, just outside Washington DC, the Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center features an elevated boardwalk that meanders through the garden, where Stonehenge-like rock arrangements, gorgeous metal loops, contemplative human forms, and moss-encased natural sculptures live. Near the entrance is a gallery for rotating exhibits, and there’s also an on-site school offering art classes and workshops for both beginners and more experienced students. A visit here is usually part of a day trip from DC or downtown Baltimore to Solomons, which is known as a major boating center.

Calvert Marine Museum

Another popular attraction in Solomons, the Calvert Marine Museum showcases the maritime heritage of the region. At the family-friendly museum, visitors can learn about coastal species such as skates, otters, and rays, and see a collection of classic boats. The main draw is the historic Drum Point Lighthouse—a screw-pile, cottage-type lighthouse that’s one of only three remaining from the 45 that once served the bay.
