Living in Maryland for the last couple of years we have been able to see some fun places. Even with all the fun places we have been there are still a lot more for us to go explore. This is a growing list of places to see and things to do in Maryland.
1. Find Fossils at Calvert Cliffs
Calvert Cliffs is known for fossils, including Shark teeth. According to maryland.gov the Cliffs are not safe but you can still find fossils at Calvert Cliffs State Park.
2. Drive Across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge
The Bay Bridge is 4.2 miles long – it spans the bay between Kent Island and Annapolis. The bridge has a toll on the Annapolis side of the bridge.
When we first moved to Maryland I heard about the wild horses, I finally crossed it off my bucket list this spring. (I can’t wait to go back!)
4. Visit the George Peabody Library
The George Peabody Library is located in the Peabody Institute of Music on Johns Hopkins University. The library is open to visitors Tuesday – Thursday from 9 am – 5 pm and Friday 9 am – 3 pm.
5. Hike to the King and Queen Seat
Visit Rocks State Park, located in Hartford County and hike to the King and Queen Seat. The King and Queen Seat is believed to have been a ceremonial gathering place for the Susquehannock Indians.
The site of Fort McHenry is what inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner”.
7.Stay at an RV Park
When we first moved to Maryland we stayed in an RV at the Ramblin’ Pines Campground for a couple of months. It was beautiful and I would love to go back up and stay there for a weekend. The RV park has RV spots, tent sites and cabins you can rent.
8. Walk Around Annapolis
The area around Maryland State House in Annapolis is fun to walk around. We love walking down the cobbled streets and window shopping our way down to the water.
9. Watch the Washington Redskins
Fedex Field located in Landover, Maryland and is home to the Washington Redskins Football team.
10. Ride the Western Maryland Railroad
Ride the Western Maryland Railroad located in Cumberland, Maryland. The ride is about 2 1/2 hours long and the peak time is October so be sure to get a reservation!
11. Follow the Yellow Brick Road
Watkins Regional Park has a Wizard of Oz themed playground. With bright colors and playground equipment it is worth checking out with your little ones. (We are going to check it out as soon as we get a warm day!)
12. Go to Sandy Point
Sandy Point State park is located on the Chesapeake Bay. According to the state website the park is 786 acres.
13. Visit Antietam National Battlefield
