There’s more to do in Maryland
November 28, 2014
Maryland may be small, but don’t let its modest size fool you; there are many amazing sights to see and things to do from the Atlantic seashore to the Appalachian mountains to the Baltimore and D.C. suburbs. You’ll find scenery that can take your breath away, notable museums worthy of a few hours of exploring and historic sites that will transport you back in time to the birth of our great nation. Did you know that our national anthem was created in Maryland?

Baltimore is the second-largest seaport in the mid-Atlantic. Some must-see sites are by the Chesapeake Bay, also known as the Eastern Shore, with two awesome harbors: Baltimore Harbor and National Harbor. Baltimore Harbor is filled with many activities for all ages, including the National Aquarium, Camden Yards and Baltimore’s Historic Ships. There’s a booming nightlife as well as some of the best Maryland seafood restaurants. You must try J Paul’s crab sandwich for a taste that will make your mouth water.
Edgar Allen Poe came from a Baltimore family and lived in and around the city. Baltimore is also the home of the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. Cheer for the team at Oriole Park at Camden Yards … while snacking on a delightfully different crab mac-and-cheese hot dog. Don’t knock it until you try it.
Drive down the beltway to the National Harbor to experience some of the best shopping, fabulous restaurants, enchanting outdoor movie nights along the river and The Capital Wheel, a giant Ferris wheel soaring 180 feet over the Potomac River waterfront where you can get a bird’s eye view of Washington, D.C., including the White House, the National Mall and more.
Maryland’s capital, Annapolis, is an enchanting little town rich with history and home to the U.S. Naval Academy. Annapolis is also a must-see if you are a crab lover; some of the best crab fishing is done right off the shore line in Annapolis. Be sure to hit Mike’s Crab House at least once. While most Americans enjoy a good cookout, for Marylanders, it’s all about a messy, good crab fest shared with family and friends!
There are many more wonderful places to see in Maryland. Whether you’re relocating as a private move, a corporate move or a government move, you’ll find Maryland and the D.C. area wonderful to live in or visit.
