Christmas Scenery Part 1: Maryland Lighthouses

Maryland is home to so many festive and beautiful buildings and small towns. Bordering the majority of the Chesapeake Bay, it is home to many beautiful lighthouses. If you’re looking for some historic and beautiful architecture to see decorated, Maryland’s many lighthouses are a great choice!

  1. Concord Point Lighthouse, Havre De Grace, MD

Havre De Grace is a beautiful, historic, and very festive town to visit during the Holidays. Jutting into the Susquehanna River sits a small peninsula featuring a walking path, boardwalk, and of course the beautiful Concord Lighthouse. During the Holidays, the lighthouse is adorned with décor and lights to create a picture-perfect holiday postcard spot!

  1. Drum Point Lighthouse, Solomon’s Island, MD

The small community of Solomon’s Island sits surrounded by water and is an enchanting environment to spend a Holiday outing. Located within the community’s Calvert Marine Museum, the sturdy construction in the “screw pile” format is a sight to behold. In the festive red, green, and white colors, it seems to have been made for Hallmark-worthy photos!

  1. Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse

Located in the bustling and beautiful inner harbor of Baltimore, Seven Foot Knoll is a unique sight among the modern architecture of the hotels, aquarium, and restaurants of the harbor. But for a night of festivities and downtown lifestyle, visit Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse.

  1. Fenwick Island Lighthouse

This one is uniquely located on the border of two states, technically shared between both! Right down from the Ocean City Boardwalk lies Fenwick Island Lighthouse that lies both in Maryland and Delaware right on the line. But if the lighthouse itself wasn’t a festive enough sight for you on its own, the bright lights and rides of the boardwalk will be sure to put you in the spirit! If you’re spending your Holiday by the ocean, don’t miss this beautiful landmark.

Holiday scenery is everywhere in Maryland. This week we focused on some of the beautiful man-made lighthouses that the Bay, ocean, and many rivers of Maryland boasts. Join us next time as we head away from the ocean and into the hills!
