Lexington Park, Maryland, is located near the Potomac River's Breton Bay in the south-central part of the state, 50 mi/80 km south of Baltimore. Lexington Park is the home of the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum, part of the Air Warfare Center located there. St. Clement's Island (where ships landed in 1634 with the first European settlers) and the Potomac River Museum (historical displays) are nearby.
Just across the river is Solomons, a fishing village that has lots of antiques shops along a riverwalk. The town's Calvert Marine Museum, a natural-history museum, has a period-decorated screw-pile lighthouse and fossil and wildlife displays, including the fossil remains of an 8-million-year-old whale, as well as a collection of oceangoing vessels.
