Maryland

A Maryland Geography Lesson

In the 1920s, a reporter for National Geographic visited Maryland and dubbed the state “America in Miniature.” We’re proud of our nickname, and we think it sums us up quite nicely.
Maryland has all – from mountains to seashores – and everything is within about a 3-hour drive of our biggest city, Baltimore. To make it easier on visitors, we’ve divided the state into five tourism regions. Here’s a capsule description of each, just to whet your appetite. No matter where you go, you’ll find something fun just around the corner.

Bikers along the towpath can view original structures including locks, lockhouses and aqueducts.
