More About (Lower) Solomons Maryland
Solomons Maryland or Solomons Island is an unincorporated community in Calvert County located at the southern end of the state. It's home to about 2100 residents and has become the day trip destination for the Baltimore and Washington DC Metro area. Solomon Islands is a major boating center at the mouth of the Patuxent River. This charming community dates back to the Revolutionary war and is known for its preserved historic Drum Point Lighthouse and Calvert Marine Museum. It's been voted as one of the happiest little seaside towns along the eastern coast known for delicious seafood, gardens, and fabulous fishing.
Nestled around the harbor where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay, the Solomons Island or just the general Solomons area was primarily isolated until a bridge was built in 1977 connecting California, Lexington Park, and the other side of the Patuxtant River to Lusby, White Sands, and of course, Solomons. The bridge leads just off Solomons Island proper to St. Mary's County and the Patuxent Naval Air Station.
Known for a weekend destination by big city folks in Washington DC, Baltimore, and other communities throughout the metro area, Solomons offers a variety of marinas, gift shops, a quaint boardwalk, seafood restaurants, harbor cruises, outdoor concerts, and a beautiful sculpture garden.
