This post is the first in a serious detailing our adventures in Baltimore. We decided there was so much fun to be had that we needed to stay overnight to be able to get the most out of our trip, therefore Baltimore will be the first of many “Buckit Blog Getaway” posts to help both local and non-local plan their nature based/outdoor adventure trips.
One of the unique things about Baltimore is that no matter where you are, you’re not far from water. Located close to the tippy top of the Chesapeake Bay, there are tons of little (and big) tributaries that empty out there, creating this finger like effect with the land in between those waterways. At some point in time, someone had the genius idea of placing parks at the ends of several of those “fingers” providing panoramic views of the bay during your visits there. Naturally, Rocky Point Park offers tons of water related activities such as sailing, fishing, kayaking, birding, and more.
The beach at Rocky Point is on point.
Tons of clean, fine sand to dig your toes in to and plenty of space to spread out makes it one of the nicest bay beaches I’ve seen. D is such a beach bum that he could have spent our entire visit running along the shoreline collecting rocks and shells. The park also offers not one, but two playgrounds, a picnic pavilion, picnic tables galore, a volleyball court, and during the Summer season, a bath house.
Speaking of the Summer season, there is a fee to enter from Memorial Day through Labor Day. I’m super cheap so I highly encourage you to visit in the “off season” as we had tons of fun even without wading at the beach.
