Most Popular Area Attractions

Fort Foote Park

Located south of D.C. in south-central Maryland, Fort Foote Park is a former Civil War-era military base. The base was constructed in 1863 to help defend the southern entry to the capital via Potomac River.

Guests can thoroughly explore every historical nook and cranny of the fort – including two actual Civil War Guns still standing – via unguided walking tours of the grounds. The fort was built atop Rozier’s Bluff, giving post-war visitors an unbeatable view overlooking the Potomac River.

Fort Washington Park

Located just south of D.C. in south-central Maryland, Fort Washington Park is a former military base primarily used during the early 19th century and the War of 1812. The base was originally constructed as a defensive strong hold for in coming traffic via the Potomac River.

Today, there are plenty of enticing things to do at Fort Washington Park – including outdoor recreational opportunities along the three-mile wildlife trail, picnicking, and the Civil War artillery demonstrations taking place one Sunday per month from April to October. Visitors can also enjoy perusing the museum, catching picturesque views of the river, and look up at the 28-foot tall Fort Washington Light.

Harmony Hall

Located just south of D.C. in south-central Maryland, Harmony Hall is an 18th century, Georgian-style mansion in Fort Washington. The mansion is found within Fort Washington Park alongside the Potomac River.

Due to the mansion’s historical significance and cultural embodiment of the region it was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The mansion’s grounds encompass over 60 acres in total near Broad Creek.

Piscataway Park

Just about 20 miles southwest of D.C., Piscataway Park preserves 4,00 acres of meadows, wetlands, and woodlands – as well as several historic structures. The park is home to the Marshall Hall National Colonial Farm and the Accokeek Creek Site – both have been named to the National Register of Historic Places.

Due to the park’s large size and unique, picturesque landscape, outdoor recreation at Piscataway Park is abundant. Water recreation on the Potomac River and boating off of Farmington Landing and Marshall Hall boat launches are popular, while bird watching on the shore is equally as rewarding.

Regency Furniture Stadium

On your next trek through Maryland, head for the western region, near DC, and visit the Regency Furniture Stadium. Whether you're a baseball fanatic, or simply in search of something fun and unique to do on your visit to nearby La Plata, make a day of it at Regency Furniture Stadium. 

Home to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, Regency Furniture Stadium opened in 2008, and seats 4,200 fans. Each year, the RFS hosts the Southern Maryland Nationals baseball tournament. You can find RFS just east of Highway 301 along Piney Church Road.

St. Mary's City

History comes alive at St. Mary's City. Once notable for being the fourth permanent settlement in British North America, St. Mary's City has thrived and survived throughout the years. Now, it pays tribute to its historical heritage with an accommodating welcome center, living history museums, hands-on archeological sites, and costumed interpretations of colonial life.

Located in southern Maryland near La Plata, this site offers many opportunities for a fun-filled day, perfect for the family or the traveling history buff. Be sure to check out the town's calendars for some of the annual events.

Thomas Stone National Historic Site

Found just a short drive south of D.C. and just outside of La Plata, the Thomas Stone National Historic Site preserves the home of Thomas Stone – one of the 56 signees of the Declaration of Independence. The site encompasses over 360 acres in total, including the Stone family’s estate – sometimes known as Haberdeventure.

The Stone’s home, farm buildings, and family center are available for viewing via both ranger-led tours and self-guided tours. Guests can also stop by the Thomas Stone Visitor Center for a variety exhibits, displays, and a short orientation film.
