Best hotels, facts and information in Maryland
Grab some crab cakes and head out to the Chesapeake Bay for a little taste of what makes Maryland the “Land of Pleasant Living.” The Old Line State gets its nickname from Maryland’s history of being a border state between the North and the South during the early colonial days. Thanks to this, Maryland is a pleasant blend of Southern hospitality and Northern urban-chic.
Chesapeake Bay, the world’s largest estuary, is one of the most popular boating destinations on the Eastern Seaboard. Nestled on the northern tip of the bay, Baltimore, the state’s largest city and most popular tourist destination, features vibrant city life, lots of history and one of the most renowned aquariums in the world. Annapolis, Maryland’s capital and the former capital of the United States, is home to the United States Naval Academy and has a rich maritime tradition. Ocean City, located on an Atlantic barrier island, is a popular destination with sandy beaches, a bustling boardwalk and a load of seaside activities.
West of Chesapeake Bay is Maryland’s western region, which is more mountainous and rugged than the eastern part of the state. Part of the Appalachian Trail (40 miles of it) runs through the region, making for great hiking. Deep Creek Lake is a very popular mountain/lake resort area.
Thanks to its proximity to the nation’s capital, Maryland is home to an array of historical attractions. American history buffs will love a chance to see the Antietam Battlefield, site of one of the bloodiest Civil War battles, as well as Fort McHenry, birthplace of the national anthem.
