Things to see and do in Maryland in 2018

Maryland offers many tourist sites of great historic interest, along with its instances of unique natural beauty:

Visit Baltimore, with its abundance of historic sites and museums. Places of interest include: Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse and the collection of “old ships” docked nearby, Fort McHenry, Lexington Market, National Aquarium, and Gwynns Falls Park.

See the historic town of Frederick, with its Hessian Barracks, “cluster of old spires” on Church Street, and National Museum of Civil War Medicine. Also be sure to stop by nearby Gambrill State Park for scenic hiking and panoramic views.

Visit Harper’s Ferry National Historic Park. Here, you can not only see historic buildings like John Brown’s Fort and museums like the Meriwether Lewis Exhibit, but you can also walk the Maryland Heights for an amazing view of the Potomac Water Gap.
