When the summer heats up and it’s time to pack up the family and head for waterfront breezes, skip Ocean City and shorten your travels by heading to Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The slower pace, welcoming atmosphere, and family-friendly, authentic vibes of Rock Hall, Easton and St. Michaels make them ideal getaways for daytrips or weekend excursions.

I will never forget the first time I took my kids to Sandy Point State Park.
They were preschoolers at the time, and it was a hot spring day. Temperatures were predicted to soar into the 90s and the leaves weren't even on the trees yet. Grasping for an activity that wouldn't involve sweltering, I thought of Sandy Point—a Cheapeake Bay beach I had read about but never been to.
I packed up the swim belts, buckets and shovels and off we went for a day on the bay. Having never been to a beach on the Chesapeake Bay, I was shocked at what we had right in our back yard. The kids had a blast and I sat back in my chair, relaxed and marveled at the fact that in less than 30 minutes from Catonsville, I was on a beach.
That is the beauty of living so close to the bay; we have access to many beaches off the beaten path. And if the jellies are getting bad, and the bay is not your thing, there are a number of lakes little more than an hour away with fresh, cool water and sandy beaches perfect for families.
Check out our list below for places to build a sandcastle or just beat the heat this summer.
