One of the most scenic regions in the Mid-Atlantic, Charles County features miles of shoreline, parks, agriculture and maritime history. But the county also is home to the cultural, entertainment and dining offerings of a large metropolitan region, due to its proximity to Washington, D.C.
Whether you’re browsing antiques, taking in a performance of the Chesapeake Choral Arts Society, or soaking up the history of the McConchie School House/Farm Museum, there’s no shortage of things to do. There’s shopping, dining and entertainment at the St. Charles Towne Center. Outdoor enthusiasts may enjoy camping, fishing, and hiking through the county’s ample parkland.
Mark your calendar for September. That’s when the Charles County Fair fills 35 acres in La Plata, Maryland. With exhibits that range from livestock to rides, games, shows and live music, the Fair is fun for the whole family!
