Maryland, USA

The eastern state of Maryland is full of attractions of all kinds, making it a state famous for its versatility. Maryland is cut across by the iconic Chesapeake Bay- a body that is the definitive state symbol and primary attraction. The state contains memorabilia and dedications to all major periods of U.S history, starting from its Native American strongholds to the American Civil War and the Industrial Revolution- Maryland is defined by it all.

Maryland's natural beauty is refreshed by the Chesapeake Bay with its many beaches in the east with lush forests fortified by the Appalachian Mountains in the west. Maryland features countless state parks and reserves that feature unique flora and fauna and provide for enjoyable outdoor activities. Famous parks include the Assateague State Park which is home to rare wild horses that delight the locals and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, which features the remains of the once important canal communities of Maryland.

Maryland's affinity for the historic doesn't end here with the state being home to Antietam National Battlefield, the site of one of the most brutal battles of the American Civil war. The state's list of notable museums includes the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art. Maryland is dotted with serene communities and blocks that lend the state its charm and ease including the Old Town Annapolis and William Paca house, both constructed in quaint red brick.

The state's other urban attractions include Ocean City- several miles of free beach with fried chicken vendors aplenty- and the city of Baltimore's inner harbour- which features the best of Maryland's cosmopolitan nature with shopping complexes, hotels, restaurants and museums.
