Did you know that Maryland is the 19th most populous state in America? It’s no wonder then that the Old Line State is packed with leisure activities, great places to visit and generally a place for some history. Here are some of our favorite place to visit in the state.
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore
Bask in the charm and feel of an old fashioned park when you watch a game or two of baseball here. The Orioles’ home field is also one of major league baseball’s newest stadiums. Don’t worry if there aren’t any game going on when you arrive, you can always go for one of the stadium’s fascinating ball park tour.
Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, St. Michaels
A wonderful outdoor museum, there is always something new to see with exhibits that showcases life on Chesapeake Bay. It also serves as an excellent source of history for surrounding Bay area and friendly docents are available near each section of the museum. You can also go on a guided tour, just don’t forget to take a picture when you enter the lighthouse!
St. Anne’s Church, Annapolis
Located in the middle of Church Circle, a short walk from downtown, St. Anne’s Church has been rebuilt twice. It is still a nice historical church to visit and if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch a sermon. Also check if the bell tower tour is open while you’re there for a 360 degree view of Annapolis.
Interesting fact: Francis Scott Key, the man who penned the Star Spangled Banner, was a parishioner at St. Anne’s over 250 years ago.
Frontier Town, Ocean City
It’s a theme park based on….the old western towns of frontier days. For $14 you can stay in the park the whole day and enjoy a myriad of activities including the lazy river (try to get your grandma out of this!), fishing, golf and more. If you’re ‘unlucky’ enough, you might be an ‘eyewitness’ to a bunch of outlaws robbing a bank!
