Guide to Maryland
Maryland is divided into five geographical regions – the Mid-Atlantic Coast Plains, the Piedmont, The Blue Ridge region, the Appalachian Ridge, and the Appalachian Plateau.
Although the capital is Annapolis, the largest and most economically and politically significant city is Baltimore.
Climate in Maryland
Maryland experiences a warm maritime climate. So summers are humid while winters are mild. But as you move west and north, the climate becomes more continental. This means heavy snowfall. To visit when the weather is most pleasant, mark your calendars from June to August.
The name of the state comes from the English queen Henrietta Maria who was popularly known as Queen Mary. Prior to the arrival of the settlers, the Algonquian, Iroquois, and Sioux tribes inhabited this land.
Things to Do to Maryland
Visit one of the prettiest beaches in the country
Ocean City, a resort town about 3 hours’ drive from Baltimore, boasts pristine blue waters and white sands. Amble along the wooden boardwalk and pop into one of the many restaurants, cafes, and shops along the promenade. You can also rent kayaks and paddleboats to enjoy the glassy waters more fully. If you’ve got time to spare, drive down to the beautiful Assateague Island nearby.
Explore rschools of fish
While in Baltimore, spend quality time with family at The National Aquarium. Crowned as one of the world’s largest aquariums, the gigantic tanks boast over 750 species and 20,000 specimens of marine flora and fauna. As well as admiring the colorful sea creatures, you may also be in awe at the architectural marvel of the building. The glass-ceilinged tank holds over 2.2 million gallons (about 8.3 million liters) of water.
Visit the birthplace of the national anthem
Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine was defended valiantly by American soldiers during the Battle of Baltimore in 1814. This inspired Francis Scott Key to famously pen “The Star-Spangled Banner.” When you visit, you can almost picture the rockets’ red glare and the bombs bursting in air.

For tasty breakfast and brunch options, try Miss Shirley’s cafe. Located in both Baltimore and Annapolis, this award-winning cafe dearly invites you to indulge in hearty dishes like Breakfast Fried Deviled Eggs and Gravy Train Southern Skillet. While spending a day in Baltimore, swing by Woodberry Kitchen for their excellent flatbreads. When you’re strolling down the boardwalk in Ocean City, make sure to pop into Thrasher’s French Fries for a crunchy yet tangy delight.
