Harford County---Celebrating Chesapeake Bay and Maritime Heritage

Some of Harford County's most beautiful places to visit also highlight the unique and lasting attribute that water brings to the county I call home.

Gun Powder State Park

This is one of the greatest places to enjoy water in Harford county if you want to spend the day at the beach. Not only do you get to swim, but you can also go kayaking, fishing, and picnic-ing. You can also go hiking. though I've never been hiking here, my brother has, and he liked it alot!

Kilgore Falls

As you can see, this is a real waterfall! It's such a beautiful area, it was even featured in the Disney movie "Tuck Everlasting". You can hike around the falls, and some people even jump off the top! I don't feel like trying it, but I do love jumping off the smaller rocks!

Havre de Grace Maritime Museum

There's not only fun outings, but alot of historic water places to visit. At the Maritime Museum you can find out about the unique history of waterman in our area. You can also learn about John Smith, the famous explorer, and his exploration of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay. There is also a boat building school, which is pretty cool.

The Skipjack Martha Lewis

This is one of the most unique museums in Harford County because it is the only one that floats!!! I've never been, but I sure would like to! This would be a great way to experience firsthand what it would have been like to be a Chesapeake waterman! The Marth Lewis offers public and private tours and cruises depending on the season.

These are only some of the unique places we are able to enjoy here in Harford that highlights water and its history in our county!
