About Southern Maryland

Home to the fourth-oldest settlement in what was once British North American and to Historic St. Mary’s City, Maryland’s first capital, St. Mary’s County also provides opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. With five state parks, opportunities to fish and hunt or just enjoy the outdoors abound; farms and wineries keep St. Mary’s true to its rural past, while golf courses, motorsports racing and a vibrant cultural scene offer great amenities and attractions.
