Maryland Road Trip



A Maryland road trip provides you with several great options for your vacation from spectacular city adventures to relaxing camping excursions.  Maryland features lots of great beaches and wineries for an easily planned weekend.  The Maryland tourism website provides an excellent list of great ideas for this vacation.


Downtown City Adventure

Baltimore is perfect for your downtown city adventure on your Maryland road trip because there are flights and hotel deals readily available at amazing deals.  Most tourists in this nearby area would prefer to check out Washington DC and as a result you can save lots of money by hanging out in Baltimore.  Here are some great places to check out while you are in the city:

  • Inner Harbor is the most photographed area in the city and is right on the water.

  • Maryland Science Center offers lots of great hands on activities for the entire family.

  • Baltimore Aquarium is a perfect way to check out some amazing marine life.

  • World Trade Center is a 5-sided building that is 32 stories tall built right along the water.

  • Fort McHenry is a perfect place to learn about our American history.

  • Power Plant Live! is the happening entertainment district in the city and is only a couple blocks from the Inner Harbor.

National Parks are spread out all over the state of Maryland and will allow you an enormous amount of flexibility while planning your vacation.  Escaping Baltimore or Washington DC and enjoying a leisurely walk through the woods or a camping excursion is something you can do almost every weekend if you truly wanted.

Horse Racing

Pimlico in Baltimore is home to the "Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown" known as the Preakness Stakes.  This race is always held 2 weeks after the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, KY.

Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington features live thoroughbred racing and is able to accommodate large groups in their dining area.  They are open seven days each week for your convenience.


Theme Parks

Jolly Roger Park in Ocean City is the largest Amusement Park in the eastern seaboard.  There are lots of rides and attractions for the entire family including the world-famous Riptide Express which is a roller coaster with lots of thrilling twists and turns.             

Six Flags America in Mitchelville offers lots of great rides and an exciting summer music series with lots of great artists your entire road trip crew will absolutely love.  Six Flags is generally known for their fabulous thrill rides and this park is no exception because it features some amazing options such as Tony Hawk's Halfpipe, the Tornado, and the Skycoaster. 



Trimper's Rides is found in the heart of Ocean City and has been owned by the same family for over 100 years!  There are lots of great rides for the small monsters on your road trip.


Outdoor Festivals on your Maryland road trip are the perfect way to plan your college road trip or if you just want to cut loose and listen to fantastic music.  The Virgin Music Festival that is held each year in Baltimore features some of the best Alternative rock bands in the world and this is an experience you will remember forever.

Wineries are plentiful in Maryland and there are two wine trails that you can explore on your vacation: Frederick Wine Trail and the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail
