Biking"Still making history!" Before you visit St. Mary's County, this may sound like just another tag line - but be sure, this is an area that's constantly evolving.

Over 365 years ago, British colonists came to St. Mary's County to start a new life. Intrigued by the area's water access and rich land, they settled here, making it Maryland's birthplace. Today, St. Mary's mix of old and new continues to draw visitors; a new commitment to sensible development should rank it high on your list of places to see!

Despite a long history, St. Mary's still feels a bit undiscovered. That's partly due to the area's layout. You might mistakenly dismiss it as being a bit empty or crowded with fast food restaurants and department stores - but a simple turn down an unassuming road will quickly lead you to a world away. You'll be greeted by the area's creeks, beaches and bays -- as the real St. Mary's County comes alive!
