The city of Baltimore, once a rough industrial port, has undergone a series of urban renewal plans over the past few decades. As a result, it has blossomed into a major tourist site of the mid-Atlantic and offers many fascinating museums, entertainment venues, professional sporting events such as the Preakness Stakes, and the famous Inner Harbor. Side trips include Westminster, which hosted both Union and Confederate troops during the Civil War, and lovely Havre de Grace, sitting at the head of the Chesapeake Bay.
Annapolis and Southern Maryland
The nation’s sailing capital, Annapolis, is the top destination on the mainland banks of the Chesapeake Bay due to its waterfront location, charming historic district, and trendy boutiques and taverns. With a busy recreational harbor, the city features an endless supply of blue crabs, oysters, and other delectable seafood. It is also home to the U.S. Naval Academy. Scenic Southern Maryland offers a slower, relaxing pace with idyllic seaside towns such as Solomons Island and Chesapeake Beach along with historic cities such as St. Mary’s City.
The Eastern Shore and Atlantic Beaches
Picturesque fishing towns, blue crabs, and sunsets—these are all traits of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Chestertown, St. Michaels, and Tilghman Island offer alluring charm and a window into life along the Chesapeake Bay. Maryland’s Atlantic beaches are a symphony of contrasts. Assateague Island calms your spirits as you share the beaches with wild ponies. Ocean City offers an exciting boardwalk and active nightlife. Three neighboring beach communities on the Delaware shore—Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach, and Lewes—are popular vacation spots.
The Capital Region
Trendy, sporty, and historical, Maryland’s Capital Region is a main suburban area of Washington DC and, as such, is densely populated. Montgomery County is sophisticated, urban, and professional with a variety of restaurants, shopping areas, hotels, and upscale neighborhoods. Prince George’s County is a hub for government agencies including NASA and the Department of Agriculture and is home to the Washington Redskins. In addition to offering visitors many interesting attractions, Maryland’s Capital Region also serves as a convenient home base for exploring Washington DC.
Frederick and Western Maryland
Frederick offers old-town charm, antiques shopping, and terrific food. Some of the region’s finest restaurants are tucked into the appealing historic downtown. Western Maryland is the “mountain side” of the state, where the railroad once ruled and the scenery is tranquil and pretty. Deep Creek Lake is a popular getaway spot for Washingtonians with its 65 miles of shoreline. Whether your idea of vacation is visiting Civil War sites, boating, or riding a steam engine through the mountains, you can find it all in Western Maryland.
