Route One Day Trips: Sandy Point State Park


I know it doesn't feel like it right now, but warmer weather will be here faster than you know it (groundhog be damned...) and the time will be just right to do some day-trippin' - so sharing this rec for you to explore Sandy Point State Park. At about a 45-minute drive from East West Hwy & Route One, it's a quick and easy destination to get to from here. 


We first visited Sandy Point a little over a year ago - in fact, it was an unseasonably warm February day - and had such a great, relaxing time. We brought a picnic, some blankets, beach chairs, shovels, buckets & some friends - you name it. We come prepared. 😄 The kids loved that they basically had a beach to themselves and well, we loved that, too!  :)


Visiting during off-season meant that admission was only $3.00 per vehicle. Major score! Parking was also a breeze (and positioned us just steps from the beach) as there were few cars in the lot. I will note that concessions were not open at the time we went, so prepare accordingly.

Great views of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, easy going beach, gentle waves, quick drive, $3 admission = put it on your calendar to explore before the summer crowds arrive! (I'm sure it's lovely then, too - but this post is for an off-season, weekend visit!)
