Maryland

Scenic wonders from mountain to coast

Visit Maryland

Introduction

Maryland is well noted for its variety of landscapes, from mountains and rolling farmlands to its winding Atlantic coastline. The state was a centre of military activity during the Civil War and a number of trails exist to follow in the footsteps of those campaigns.

Baltimore

Today’s Baltimore, known as Charm City, is a vibrant community that honours the past while keeping a keen eye firmly on the future. Baltimore’s buzzing Inner Harbor is the city’s focal point and location for top attractions such as the National Aquarium and the American Visionary Art Museum. Just a short water taxi ride away is Fells Point, the historic cobbled neighbourhood that’s a legacy to Baltimore’s British nautical roots. The city is where you can see the largest public collection of Matisse in the world, completely free of charge; sip a craft beer in the sanctuary of a converted church; and stay in a four-star hotel poised atop a historic recreation pier.

Annapolis

The port city of Annapolis was once the capital of the U.S. and is home to many colonial buildings and the Unites States Naval Academy. From there it's a short hop to Chesapeake Bay, waterway with the longest inland shoreline in the states, perfect for sailors, fishermen and seafood lovers, who can indulge in the local specialty – soft-shell blue crab.

Frederick County

Frederick County, Maryland is surrounded by the rolling hills of the Catoctin Mountains, steeped in American Civil War history, and home to a 50-block downtown with over 200 speciality shops and dozens of restaurants. Sip and sample at wineries, breweries, and distilleries - the most of anywhere in Maryland.
