Living in Maryland – Life in the Beautiful Old Line State

Nestled along the eastern seaboard, Maryland boasts a rich tapestry of natural beauty, history, and culture. One of the best parts of living in Maryland? We have seasons! With four distinct seasons, each offering its own unique beauty, there’s never a shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy.

Living in Maryland for Outdoor Enthusiasts

From rolling hills to lush forests, Maryland’s diverse landscapes offer outdoor enthusiasts a playground of adventure. Hike along the scenic trails of Catoctin Mountain Park, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, or paddle through the tranquil waters of Deep Creek Lake. Embark on a scenic drive along the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail or go birdwatching at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Maybe you’re more of a beach person – head out to Ocean City for the perfect seaside vacation. (While you’re there, drive down to Assateague Island to visit the wild ponies!)

Steeped in History

History buffs have a lot to love about this great state: as one of the original thirteen colonies, Maryland is steeped in history at every turn. Visit the charming town of Annapolis, home to the United States Naval Academy and a treasure trove of colonial architecture. Explore the hallowed grounds of Antietam National Battlefield, where one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War unfolded. And that's just a few of the historic sites within the Old Line State.

Living in Maryland: Culture

Baltimore, affectionately known as Charm City, serves as the dynamic cultural hub of Maryland. Dive into the bustling Inner Harbor, where historic ships dock alongside world-class attractions like the National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Center. Wander through the cobblestone streets of Fell's Point, brimming with eclectic shops, cozy cafes, and lively pubs. Remember to catch a game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards or M&T Bank Stadium, where passionate fans cheer on their beloved Orioles and Ravens.

Maryland is also a stone's throw from Washington, D.C., where you can explore even more of our nation's heritage, from food to politics to the city's own lovely greenery, like Rock Creek Park or Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park. There is always something to do, see, eat, and learn.

Maryland Delicacies

Finally, no article about Maryland would be complete without mentioning Old Bay, especially as it is used on our mouthwatering Maryland crab cakes, renowned for its jumbo lump crab meat plucked right from the blue crabs of the Chesapeake.
