Sunsets in Howard County are absolutely magical. There's a number of places where you can enjoy the sunset (or even sunrise) around HoCo, and we've listed the top five places for you to enjoy them!

Patapsco Valley State Park

With 16+ acres of land, there is no wrong place to watch the sunset here. Relax on a blanket surrounded by trees, or next to the Patapsco River. Bring a camera too--there's nothing like a sunset here!

Old Ellicott City

Perch yourself up by the courthouse, and watch the sun descend behind the historic buildings in Old Ellicott City. The town looks absolutely magical as the street lights slowly turn on, bringing the small town to life for the evening. 

Heron's Meadow Farm

Enjoy a fresh cup of tea as you watch the sunset over plush landscapes and wildlife. This is the only tea farm in Maryland, making this one of the most unique spots to watch the sunset in HoCo!

Historic Savage Mill

After a day of shopping at their unique stores, grab an outdoor seat and watch the sunset over this historic building. Or head over to the Bollman Bridge and watch from there. 

Retreat and Conference Center at Bon Secours 

This peaceful retreat offers a number of areas for you to relax and watch the sunset. This is also a great place for self reflection, especially after a long day!

Don't just limit yourself to these five places though. There are a number of unique, beautiful spots to watch the sunset in HoCo! Plan you trip today!
