Colonial Guide
Discover Maryland’s colonial heritage this month. Start the Thanksgiving season with a trip to the state’s birthplace, Historic St. Mary’s City in Southern Maryland. Stroll through Annapolis, a colonial town with the nation’s largest collection of 18th-century buildings still in use. Head to the Eastern Shore where you’ll find Cambridge, Chestertown, Oxford and St. Michaels – former colonial seaports brimming with new vibrancy. At the top of the Chesapeake Bay is Havre de Grace, a colonial town with an artistic flair. Here are just a few ways to experience Maryland’s colonial heritage this month.
