Not really familiar with Lex Park but St Mary's City and Solomons are worth visiting.

2. Re: Taking A Day Trip

We recently lived one year in Leonardtown. As mentioned above, you should visit St. Mary's City - (it's like a smaller version of Jamestown Settlement, Virginia, with costumed interpreters).

Also, visit the resort town of SOLOMONS, MD, just across the bridge. My children used to enjoy climbing the winding stairway to the lighthouse and seeing the very tiny rooms where the lighthouse keeper's family had to live. This is part of the Maritime Museum in Solomons, which also has exhibits inside on fishing boats, world war 2, jellyfish, otters swimming in a tank, and digging for sharks' teeth in a sandbox. Boat cruises are also offered from the museum grounds. Stroll the Solomons boardwalk while having an ice-cream cone. Visit a gift shop and a seafood restaurant.

Leonardtown has roller-skating, but only on certain nights, in the Leonard Hall Rec. Center, next to the County government complex on Route 245. Check the St. Mary's County parks and recreation website, for details. Visit the Lexington Park public library and see if they have any summer programs for children. My children also liked the caged animals in the colorful "Corner Critters" pet shop on Washington Street in downtown Leonardtown. The "Cheeseburger in Paradise" restaurant on Highway 235 in California, MD is also colorful and fun. For more about the general area, visit http://www.somd.com .
