How to enjoy Maryland

Steeped in history and among the prettiest states on the East Coast, Maryland has plenty to offer visitors—including sophisticated cities and, of course, the best crab in the country

  • History and military buffs should hit Annapolis’ Naval Academy and the State House, where George Washington resigned as commander in chief
  • Baltimore’s Little Italy is a must-eat destination. Surprised? Skip the crab for one meal and head to Aldo’s—and then Vaccaro’s for a sweet
  • Mount Vernon is Baltimore’s arts and cultural hub, with magnificent museums, majestic architecture and the original Washington Monument

Maryland is essentially a condensed version of every landscape in the U.S., sporting mountains, state parks, beaches and an ocean. It’s an outdoor lover’s dream, really, with all of that hiking, rafting and sailing. But this small state also abuts Washington, D.C., which seems fitting given its significant historic sites and ties.

Then there’s the cosmopolitan city of Baltimore, which has a little bit of everything—from the oldest antiques district in the country to the world-class National Aquarium. But to really find out why it’s known as Charm City, get to know neighborhoods like Federal Hill and Hampden, where signature redbrick row houses and—if you’re lucky—a traditional Baltimore greeting of “Hi, hon!” await you.

    When to visit Maryland

    Maryland is a typical four-season U.S. city: hot and muggy in the summer, cold in the winter. Its boating and outdoor-oriented activities make it most popular with visitors in the summer, though late spring and early fall are more temperate and slightly less crowded.

Hotels we adore in Maryland

Here are the hotels that we love in Maryland. We've shared our insight about what makes each one special to help you select the perfect place to stay

  • The local view

    When enjoying an afternoon at an Ocean City beach, don’t give in and feed the seagulls. It’s like a scene from The Birds once they’ve discovered a visitor is gullible enough to share a snack.

  • Did you know

    You could help raise the flag over Fort McHenry (where Francis Scott Key was inspired to write The Star-Spangled Banner). Park rangers ask for visitors’ help with the task every day.

  • Gourmet Guide

    Locals know that crab season is summer through early fall, so if you want Maryland crab—not imported stuff—you’re most likely to find it then.
