Convenient to the DC and Baltimore metros, ENNWR is brimming with birds and gorgeous Bay vistas.

Although the trails at Eastern Neck may be small in size (the longest is just over a mile) they're big on sights. It's practically impossible to visit the refuge and not see wildlife, particularly the dizzying number of avian species here. Visit during the winter to see the majestic Tundra Swan, on loan from the Arctic for the season. Bald Eagles and Blue Herons abound; ducks of all sorts call these waters home.

Photograph the Frozen Bay at Sandy Point

The winter is the perfect time to explore this park as it does not draw in many visitors like it does in the summer months.

Hike the Black Marsh Trail at North Point State Park

Edgemere, Maryland

First, a few disclaimers: The parking lot may be "at capacity" if you choose to visit the park in the summer. Do not despair; there is an auxiliary lot of sorts just near the gate.
