Spend the Day in Leonardtown!

Leonardtown has been described in many ways; small town charm, quaint, tranquil with historic roots. One of the best surprises is the hidden upscale draws. More than once described as a cross between Mayberry and Annapolis! With over 300 years of history there are plenty of historical sites to visit. But there is plenty more to do from outdoor life to shopping and dining. The downtown square, one of the few remaining intact in Maryland today, is a beautiful gathering place for residents and visitors. Whether it is for one of the numerous public events held annually there or just a quiet stroll along the brick paved sidewalks.
