Around Maryland

In 1632 Lord Baltimore chose the name of Maryland, in honour of Henrietta Maria, the wife of Charles I.

Maryland stretches from Ocean City on the Atlantic Coast, to Deep Creek Lake in the Allegheny Mountains.

Other popular areas in Maryland include Catoctin Mountain Park, Greenkelt Park, and Piscataway Park.

Visit Maryland

Once described by National Geographic as 'America in Miniature', Maryland boasts a wealth of historical, cultural and tourist attractions for day-trippers and vacationers alike.


The capital of Maryland is located on the southern bank of the Severn River, near its mouth on Chesapeake Bay, in the central part of the state.

From November 26, 1783, to June 3, 1784, Annapolis served as the capital of the United States and the State House (1772-1780), is the oldest US State Capitol in continuous legislative use.

Once one of the busiest ports in the United States, the former rundown Inner Harbour of Baltimore is now a restored brainchild of former mayor, Donald Schaefer.

And very touristy it is too; a five square block of waterside bounded by the National Aquarium, Harborplace, the Maryland Science Center, and a flotilla of ships to welcome you aboard.

Baltimore Sightseeing

While a visit to Harborplace and Federal Hill should be on your agenda, don't forget the genuine neighbourhoods.

You can take a water taxi across the harbour to Fell's Point, for a social encounter with real life streets.

Little Italy is between Harborplace and Fell's Point. Buses 7 and 10 leave from Pratt Street to Abermarle Street. Plenty of Italian ristorantes, of course.

Many macabre types come to Baltimore to visit the grave of Edgar Allan Poe, while baseball fans know Baltimore as the birthplace of Babe Ruth.

Another famous site, is the Basilica of the Assumption; the first Roman Catholic cathedral built in the United States (1806 to 1821).

The city also erected the first monuments to Christopher Columbus (1797) and George Washington (1815-1829).

The National Aquarium is located at 501 East Pratt Street, Baltimore; the anchor to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Historical Maryland

The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, in Baltimore, contain exhibits associated with the origin of the American flag and national anthem.

Notable 18th-century houses are included in Thomas Stone National Historic Site, near Port Tobacco, and Hampton National Historic Site, in Towson.

Clara Barton National Historic Site, in Glen Echo, contains the home of the founder of the American Red Cross.
