Plenty of places are great to visit for one reason or another. Whether that's the weather, the nightlife or the history. But every now and then you find yourself in a place that seems to have everything. A place that is so filled to the brim with things to do and see that you can't image how you're even going to take it all in.
That is exactly what it's like in Maryland. The Old Line State has so much going on it's crazy! There's no way I could talk about everything that you could experience but here are just a few of my favorite things in Maryland.
[See featured photo above] This is Maryland's most popular attraction and with good reason. This beautiful area of the state is filled with gorgeous natural scenery, sublime beaches, and historic towns. Every town in this area has it's own history and atmosphere. You can find yourself taking walks across the Eastern Shore's gorgeous landscapes one day. And then enjoying the galleries of Chesapeake City the next.
The largest city in Maryland is a great place to spend a day out. With bars, restaurants, and attractions galore there's something for everyone. The jewel in Baltimore's crown has to be the inner harbor. From the National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Centre to the Pier Six Pavilion and Horseshoe Casino. There's so much happening at the inner harbor that you could spend days there and still never experience it all!
If you're looking for the complete opposite, then Deep Creek Lake is absolutely perfect. This beautiful, natural area of Maryland offers the perfect getaway destination. Ideal for those who enjoy outdoor activities such a cycling and hiking, Deep Creek Lake also provides a serene haven for those who just want to relax. You also don't have to worry about coming here out of season. In the winter months, there's the opportunity for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snow tubing.

One of the best things about Maryland are the strange little attractions you'll find hidden throughout the state. From the tiny town of Solomons, with its incredible views. To the ghoulishly exciting Haunted Attractions in Maryland. There's always something wonderfully unique to discover that will keep you coming back to the state time and time again.
If you're in the mood for getting out and taking in the nightlife, Maryland has a fantastic array of music venues to enjoy. From the fabulous outdoor atmosphere of the Merriweather Post Pavilion to the state of the art concert hall of the Strathmore Music Centre. There are so many places to enjoy great music in Maryland, whatever your tastes.
It might sound like a cliche, but Maryland is a place that really does have something for everyone. So much that I could never cover it all! Whether you want to learn about Maryland's religious history or to discover the birthplace of the national anthem. Whoever you are and whatever you're looking for, the chances are that Maryland has it.
I choose happiness.. and chocolates. Writing is my passion. What's yours? ♥
