Daytrip to Historic Benedict Maryland

If you are looking for a daytrip from National Harbor,
Washington DC, Alexandria VA or Baltimore Maryland.

Here is a suggestion and highlights
of our daytrip to Benedict Maryland.

On Sunday, August 23, 2015 with temperatures in the 80`s
and beautiful sunny skies we decided to take a drive south
to Southern Maryland to visit the Historic town of Benedict.

We took photos of some of the homes, the post Office,
Benedict Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad,
River`s Edge Restaurant, and the Benedict waterfront.

We enjoyed a meal at River`s Edge Restaurant
with a view of the river and the nearby bridge.

We had crab cakes, fried rockfish stuffed with crab imperial,
steamed shrimp, baked potatoes, garlic mashed potatoes,
cole slaw, and hush puppies and a soft drink. Everything
was delicious and our waitress, Natalie was so nice.

Since most of the guests preferred to eat out on the deck
We had the entire air conditioned dining room to ourselves.

Afterwards, we went out on the pier to watch people on the water.

In the old days, people from Washington would travel to Benedict
to fish and boat on the Patuxent River, bird watch, enjoy a meal
and play slots.

Benedict-Leonardtown, now simply Benedict
was founded in 1683 and has plenty of history.

First settled as a colonial port town in 1706, the waterfront village of Benedict is located in far-eastern Charles County along a narrow peninsula bordering the Patuxent River and Indian Creek.

In the War of 1812, Benedict was the location where the British Army landed in August 1814, From Benedict, the British began their march to Washington, D.C., ultimately burning that city before finally being stopped in the Battle of Baltimore.

Adjacent to the town of Benedict is the Benedict Bridge,
a 0.5 mile-long bridge where Maryland Route 231 crosses the
Patuxent River from Charles County into Calvert County MD.
