Robert Frost wrote: Stop in the woods to watch them fill with snow. To find that white stuff, head to Garrett County, known to get nearly twice as much snow as Fairbanks, Alaska. At Wisp Resort, enjoy its New Year’s Eve celebration, then conquer the slopes during Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. Skiing and cross-country skiing are also embraced at state parks throughout Maryland including First Day Hikes on January 1.

New Years Fireworks Baltimore Ringing in the New
Gather friends and family to celebrate the last day of 2012.  The Eastern Shore celebrates as Berlin becomes a mini Times Square; Talbot County features a crab drop and fireworks are in the sky at Ocean City’s Winterfest.  The Chesapeake harbor towns of Baltimore and Annapolis also ring in the New Year in a spectacular fashion.
Main Streets of Maryland Logo Down on Main Street
The Main Streets of Maryland are always great spots to discover unique shops, restaurants and activities but many pull out all the stops each month on a special day whether it’s the First Friday in Leonardtown and Chestertown, the First Saturday in Frederick,  the Second Saturday in Denton and Cambridge or the Third Friday in Salisbury.  Make a date to visit a Maryland Main Street as there’s always something to discover around each corner.
Boordy Vineyards Vintage Times
Savor summer flavor of grapes at pairings winery events such as Winter, Wine and Chocolate at Linganore Winecellers in Frederick County and Chili Winter Days at Boordy Vineyards in Baltimore County.  Then revel in the exclusive and elusive smaller lots of Maryland vinters at Winter Wine at Evergreen on January 10.
Civil War stories
More than 150 years ago, Maryland was a divided state in a divided nation. Discover the Civil War through the stories of the war, from the soldiers who fought in its battles to the women and children who were affected, at these events and exhibitions: Frederick County Civil War Roundtable Lecture: Clara Barton Finds Her Role at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine on January 17 and at Valley of the Shadow exhibition at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts through July 28.
