Naval Air Station Pax River is to home the the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) headquarters. It’s also known as the place “where the future of Naval aviation begins.”

The base is located where the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay meet in Maryland. It’s straight east of Fredericksburg, Virginia, about 90 miles north of Norfolk, and 65 miles south of Washington D.C. which means that, even though it’s located on a quiet peninsula, there are a large number of activities nearby to keep your weekends busy.

Check out this beautiful colonial home just minutes from NAS Pax River!

Leonardtown, Maryland is a small town with a little something for everyone. It’s home to the Leonardtown Arts and Entertainment district and has numerous art galleries, studios, shops, and restaurants for your entertainment. And if the arts aren't your thing, Leonardtown Wharf Park just might be. There you can enjoy outdoor activities like paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing.

Leonardtown is also home to Amish Country. Come and shop for local crafts, quilts, and furniture or have a glass of wine at the Port of Leonardtown Winery. Another great community event is the First Fridays in Leonardtown where locals come together to enjoy local cuisine, crafts, and art the first Friday of each month.
