You'll be inspired to savor the state's famous blue crab-whether it's in a delicious crab cake, atop a salad, in Maryland crab soup, or piping hot out of the steamer with Old Bay seasoning. Dig in the sand for shark's teeth and other fossils at the Calvert Marine Museum in Southern Maryland. Marvel at the vistas from the Capital Wheel at National Harbor, as you soar 180 feet over the Potomac. Hear the "Star-Spangled Banner" at Fort McHenry, the home of the brave and the birthplace of the National Anthem. Stroll the threemile- long boardwalk in Ocean City and breathe in the fresh sea air-and the delicious aroma of Thrasher's French Fries. All of your five senses will be captivated by Maryland's vacation offerings.
Destination Maryland, the print vacation planning guide for Maryland, also lists a wealth of lodging choices-hotels and motels, bed and breakfasts, vacation rentals and campgrounds, along with state and national parks and green travel options. Unique programs offer the chance to stay in an historic C&O Canal lock tender's house, overnight in a Chesapeake Bay lighthouse keeper's house, or camp in a rustic tree house.
