My husband and I drive out to Turkey Point Lighthouse from North East. It was a pleasant drive. We hiked the trail to the lighthouse and spent some time overlooking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. It was a nice walk and a wonderful view.

The Maryland leash law applies to this park. If you go online and Google dog parks or dog beaches in Maryland (or by county), you will find plenty of areas to take your dog(s) and let them run loose.
