Every Marylander Should Visit This Underrated Island At Least Once
While most people visit
Maryland’s islands for the water views, fishing, and to work on their tans, St. Clement’s Island offers something a little different. This little known spot off the coast of Southern Maryland deserves more recognition. After all, it’s the birthplace of our state.
You wouldn't know it, but this little island is where English settlers first landed in Maryland in 1634.
Today, the island is a state park that's overflowing with history.
It's reachable by water taxi, leaving from Coltons Point. Price is $7 per person and includes admission to the museum.
Plaques are set up throughout the island, offering tidbits about Maryland's beginnings.
The park also includes trails and spots for picnics. The most grand feature, however, is the giant cross commemorating the very first Marylanders.
It's a surreal experience standing where our founders stood over 300 years ago. This is where Maryland was born and if you were born here, it's worth a visit.
