Splash in the water, create sandcastles, and enjoy an amazing view of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.
At Matapeake State Park you can glimpse the Bay Bridge in the distance while hunting for shells, or take off your shoes and walk the shoreline. Keep an eye out for the wildlife that could be nearby.
Take a nice walk through a winding trail with the family dog and let them celebrate at the end on the dog beach. Dogs are not allowed on the public beach.
The state park, just across the Bay Bridge from Annapolis, offers ample parking, an outdoor amphitheater, picnic area and a few trails winding through the nearby woods.
