Maryland Holidays

Think of Maryland before the opening pitch of the next baseball game, because it was here that the national anthem was written. After seeing the flag still waving over Fort McHenry during a battle in the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key gained the inspiration to write “The Star Spangled Banner.” Visitors to Maryland can revisit these moments and ...

more, as the state offers plenty of historical and natural attractions including museums, colonial farms, Civil War fields and parks celebrating the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. Its chief city, Annapolis, served as the nation’s temporary capital from 1783-1784, and today it remains a vibrant city of governmental business. Maryland is also one of the most environmentally friendly states in the country, effectively preserving its natural beauty (and delicious seafood) for future generations of visitors.

Bursting at the seams with mountains, waterways, a winding Atlantic coastline, and bustling cities, there is always something to do in Maryland, no matter what time of the year you visit. It all depends on what ... Read more
you want to do and where you want to go. Eastern Maryland has hot, humid summers and short, mild winters; the Piedmont region of the state gets more snow.

Visit in the spring, early summer and fall to avoid the crowds and enjoy milder weather.

Maryland is a microcosm of the US and has a little something for everyone. From the mountains to the seashore, Maryland delivers it all. The 1-95 Corridor between DC and Baltimore is one of the mostly densely populated areas of the country, while Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore are light years away, maintaining rural character and a different way of life. And of course, no summary of Maryland is complete without mentioning that Maryland is for crabs. The Chesapeake Bay blue crab in fact. Crab houses are an ubiquitous feature of Maryland, found everywhere from big city downtown centers to the smallest of small little townships. No one steams crabs or cooks crab cakes quite like Marylanders do.
