Take heed that no skateboards, roller-blades, or pets are allowed on the promenade. This wooden walkway is a great way to be by the water, watch passing ships, wild waterfowl, and take in some people watching. The garden area around the lighthouse is well kept, and the docks there are fun to check for what local fishermen are catching. Great... More

The promenade is a lovely place to spend the afternoon. It is a boardwalk along the Chesapeake Bay. One may visit the lighthouse and light-keepers house. It is a lovely view from the lighthouse. Both of these sites are free, but they are only open on weekends during the summer. I recommend enjoying one of the wonderful restaurants and the... More

The Promenade threads it way past The Martime Museum and The Concord Point Lighthouse and is a nice walk with plenty of benches and good views of the bay. There are public restrooms across the street from the museum (which is a good thing because the museum was closed when we went.) Havre de Grace is a nice town to... More

Just a nice and peaceful walk along the river. Watching the boats and the birds makes a relaxing walk. Nice parking along the route.

I absolutely love going to Havre de Grace and walking the boardwalk from the promenade to the light house with a peach smoothie in my hand. Can't think of one time that I have had a bad experience while here. Come in the summer on Fridays to hear some great live music and soak up the sunset!

This promenade is 0.5 mile long. At one end you will find the historical Concord Point lighthouse. As you walk along there are many park benches where you can sit and look out over the water. There are several plaques that give information about the wildlife, the bay itself and the historical importance of the town. Continue walking to the... More

The Havre de Grace Promenade is a great place if you are a visiting sightseer from out of town or a local Harford Countian that strolls the promenade for exercise. The wooden promenade is wide so couple or families with kids can pass each other without being cramped against. The walking surface is smooth and presents no irregularities to stumble... More

One of the best things to do while in Havre de Grace is to take a refreshing stroll on the promenade. The views of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay are stunning. If you begin the walk from the public marina side near Tydings Park, the walk will begin at a large wooden gazebo. There is a food shop... More

What a great area for a walk. The view is fantastic. Ducks and other waterfowl, boats and history abounds. Be sure to stop and contemplate the area around you as you walk. All the history that occurred here. Stop by the marina at the end for a bite to eat. During the year there are many events in the area.... More

My husband and I were in Havre de Grace for an anniverary get away. We spent some time waling along the promenade and really enjoyed the natural beauty of the waterfront. The area is rich in history, which my husband loved, and there are displays that explain the history of the area. I'm so glad they took the time and... More
